That's the idea, yes. Currently one thing is preventing us from that: we'd like to move abroad in a year or so and build a house. We'd like to wait at least until we have moved. No need to wait for the house, but we'd like at least to be on location, even if it's a temporary place. I wouldn't trust any moving company with our precious pair of 8c's ! So yeah, it may take a bit of time, but we'll get there.
I didn't ask any questions about it, so no. To me D&D is synonym to cardioid. For non-cardioid there are already lots of manufacturers.Did they mention de 8m model, the non-cardioid version of the 8c?
Thanks for the story and pictures.

The 8m was basically a 8c (same outside dimensions) without cardioid design, without dual rear subwoofers and with a BR vent instead. It's not sold anymore.
Any particular reason why Erin's review is not mentioned, while being the most extensive measurements about the 8C so far?Specs and measurements:
I have Noctua fans that have been on almost 24/7 over 10 years without an issue.Very interesting, thanks for sharing! I’d be slightly concerned about that Noctua fan, I wonder if it’s user replaceable? I have a bunch of servers - some home made - and in my experience fans are the primary failure points, followed by hard drives. Right now I have a server with two Noctua fans in need of replacement, one of them has gotten very noisy and the other died completely. After about 2.5 years.
Does Genelec use Pascals in all their speakers?Likely the fan doesn't even run normally. There's no fan in my 1237A amps which have the same Pascals, they barely get warm blasting at full volume..
Plywood and solid wood are used together all the time, in this case it’s just not the way you should do it.
From the pics and what I’ve read about them, the sides are solid wood panels.
If they hold together over the long haul (these are pretty recent products) good for them I guess. It’s just not something most cabinet makers would do. The shrinkage coefficient for White Oak is 0.00365. In my area, I’d expect a moisture content change of around 4% (6% m.c. in the winter, 10% m.c. in the summer).
The solid wood sides look to be around 14” wide, so the seasonal dimensional change will be approximately 0.00365 x 4 x 14” = 0.204” (13/64”).
No, just the master series RAM-L amp (likely XL too).Does Genelec use Pascals in all their speakers?

What else cost so little and lasts so long. Bang for buck is outstanding.Really? I have 5 Noctua fans in my PC that haven't missed a beat for 5 years (and they're the cheaper Redux models).
VERY cool and fascinating post. Except I was left wondering about the beauty of the surrounding countryside and what you ate for lunch/ dinner. ( to @BlackTalon). More seriously, we also had the Apple HomePod measuring and adapting to its environment. I wonder if we'll see some maker taking up the idea but offloaded to a smartphone, i.e. not needing as much computing power and cost inside the speaker itself, and development costs distributable across entire current and future product lines.a tour of Dutch & Dutch facilities.
