    Genelec 8040 vs 8030 vs Neumann KH 120

    I did an in home with the 8030s and then a bake off with the 8040s for my home office setup. That setup was space constrained, so I went with the 8040 to get a bit more low end extension without having to fit a subwoofer. Make no mistake though, if you want extension to bass or sub bass, you...

    Genelec 8040 vs 8030 vs Neumann KH 120

    Went with 8040 for home office because it has less need for a sub than 8030s. That said, if you want full range sound, you need a sub, and if you have a sub, the upper mid and upper fr of the 8030 and 8040 are indistinguishable

    Genelec 8351B Review (Studio Monitor)

    i got an absolutely insane price on a pair of demos and am blown away by these, even more than in my listening sessions. my girlfriend and I thinking they do need a sub to really fill out the sound, but i do like the way GLM chases flat response regardless. the analog in is also so good that...

    Genelec 8351B Review (Studio Monitor)

    i listened to the focal trio in an A B against the 8351 with a GLM curve and felt the trio had further bass extension but was not more accurate on my reference recordings compared to an EQ'd hd650 or hd800s. I'm going to go for the 1s, and it's not an if but a when.

    SBAF getting an APx555

    AP and klippel marketing staff are probably going to have a hard time convincing management that a donation to an internet forum without named recognition or programmer advertisement is a good thing to do

    strange SMSL M500 high 3rd harmonic

    yes, the marketing materials should have been changed. i'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt that they changed the engineers changed the bom without notifying marketing. it's a small operation like you guys. m500 will be difficult to upgrade. from amir's teardown (deep in the forum...

    strange SMSL M500 high 3rd harmonic

    look. the performance obviously hasn't changed at all with the change in output OPA. BOMs change with hardware revisions all the time. would you complain if they changed (and they almost certainly have) passive sourcing? resistors, capacitors suppliers and values? absolutely not. as long as the...

    strange SMSL M500 high 3rd harmonic

    give smsl some time to figure out how to get the new firmware for the m500 out. now that we know it's a firmware bug, it's just an issue of figuring out how to distribute the flashers and instruct people how to use them. they did this successfully with the sabaj d5. i don't doubt they can do...

    Pro audio is aes or analog, but analog is generally king
