I am especially looking forward to more Audio-over-IP (and PoE-powered) speakers.

Great news!

That massive egg on the boat looks like "8361" - if so.... I wish it excels in the transient reproduction as well ;)

So we get a 8361 which is a larger version of 8351 (more spl, better bass).
And also W371 a subwoofer with a vertical shape that you can put below the various eggs, more SPL again.

From the website:

Three different operating modes allow you choose between a flat and neutral LF response avoiding ‘acoustic notching’, continued directivity of the main monitor down to the lowest LF frequencies, or reduction of detrimental reflections by the walls, ceiling or floor of your room

Prices to come but I guess Genelec range so expensive, think kii or d&d like for the large egg.

Plenty of measurements Here
Directivity is excellent, glm is now able to do tricks with multiple subwoofers. Possibly D&D has been pushing Genelec to improve. Good.

Too Big, too expensive. Disappointed.
Genelec has already wide range of small monitors. Dealer profit margin is smaller than eg. Kii Audio or D&D. These speakers are manufactured in Finland where employees get proper wages.

How much are the new models?

I remember they mentioned in the video something around 3.5kEur for 8351B, 4kEur for 8361 and 8kEur for the sub.

According to Aki Mäkivirta monitors have group delay and phase optimisation built in :)

Pity they don't have group discount and price optimization built in...

I would be interested in small monitors. But these are huge.

BTW, this "group delay and phase optimisation built in" is not something included in the old model 8351A ?.

Nice new releases. I agree that Audio over IP should be included in their new releases, especially since they have had the 8340 IP monitor already for a while now with AoIP support.
