The Genelec 8030A is a very compact bi- ampli ed active monitor system with perfor- mance comparable to much larger systems. The 8030A excels in applications where space is at a premium, taking full advantage of the unconventional design and advanced technol- ogies of Genelec’s 8000 Series loudspeaker range. The all-aluminium Minimum Diffraction EnclosureTM (MDETM) and advanced Directivity Control WaveguideTM (DCWTM) technologies are carefully matched with advanced ampli er and electronics circuitry and the latest drivers. Bass response has been widened down to 55 Hz (-3 dB) while distortion is substantially lower due to a uniquely new rear re ex port design. The system's excellent directivity char- acteristics and accurate imaging together with its compact size and exible mounting options make the 8030A the perfect monitoring tool for a wide range of applications.

The 8030A has been specially designed to have a suf cient LF extension for most situ- ations. However if greater SPL's and a lower cutoff frequency are required, it can be com- plemented with Genelec 7050B subwoofer, which has a lower cutoff point of 25 Hz.

And I actually experimented also with sampling techniques that do not involve a loudspeakers and I came up...

...the title says I don't know which would be best, buying the Yamahas brand new for 400 euros or the 8030as used for 600? Do the genelecs sound that much better? Unfortunately there is no ability to try the Yamahas before buying, so I can't compare them on my own. I also have 0 experience in...
