8320A SAM™ Studio Monitor, 4 inch woofer
Compact enough to fit into the tightest of spaces - yet intelligent enough to adapt to your recording environment - the 8320A is your entry point into the world of Smart Active Monitoring.
Easy enough to carry with you yet packed with today’s most advanced monitoring technology, the 8320A will make the most of your recording environment, no matter where you choose to work.
Small but mighty, the two-way, Class-D bi-amplified 8320A blends a deceptively powerful 4-inch woofer with Genelec’s renowned acoustic design expertise and world-leading Smart Active Monitoring (SAM™) technology.
Each SAM system is designed to adapt and assist, working with proprietary Genelec Loudspeaker Manager (GLM™) 2.0 software to deliver a suite of ground-breaking functions. Allow AutoCal™ to ensure your monitoring system is perfectly calibrated to your listening environment, compensating for detrimental room influences to create a truly optimised monitoring solution. Use GLM 2.0 to manage up to 30 Smart monitors and subwoofers, allowing you to mix the way you want, from simple stereo to ambitious immersive audio setups. Delve deep into control options including full recall of settings for different listening positions.
All this combines with the colour-free accuracy of the Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE™), and precise on- and off-axis frequency reproduction of the Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW™). The result is the ideal small monitor to fit the way you work.
Transparent and truthful
The 8320A provides transparent and truthful reproduction, and with its wide uncoloured sweet spot you are always in a position to make accurate, reliable mix decisions. The recycled aluminium design of it rear-ported enclosure not only provides staggering LF extension from such a compact unit, its curved form and integrated waveguide guarantees precise, detailed performance both on and off axis.
Compact but clever
As a Smart Active Monitor, the 8320A integrates closely with our GLM software via which it can be configured and calibrated for your listening environment, compensating for detrimental room influences to create a truly optimised monitoring solution from mono to immersive. So whether you work in challenging acoustic spaces or need a mobile solution that can quickly adapt to different rooms, the 8320A is your compact but clever monitoring companion.
