M040 Studio Monitor
Mixing cutting edge sustainability with a best-in-class price point and world-leading technology – the Genelec M040 is a move beyond the ordinary.

Created by acclaimed industrial designer Harri Koskinen and handcrafted to perfection, every flagship M040 represents the optimum balance between affordability, world-leading innovation and uncompromising performance. Discover the details in your mix with the precise on- and off-axis frequency reproduction of the Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW™), and painstaking bass reproduction of the Laminar Integrated Port (LIP™). Both are integrated into the breakthrough Natural Composite Enclosure (NCE™), itself a huge step forward in sustainable, environmentally friendly enclosure design. Inside, Class D amplifiers power a 6 1/2 inch woofer and 1 inch tweeter, all combining to bring you colour-free, accurate reproduction.

With simple-to-use room response controls to accommodate any acoustic environment, the Genelec M040 will help you realise your true potential.
