Genelec 8240A Bi-Amplified Monitor System
One of the more notable aspects of the Genelec 8240A powered studio monitors is their reliance on the company’s Loudspeaker Manager technology. This software allows users to control network technologies, allowing adjustments of all monitor settings and full system control. Every monitor that works within the network is then able to be synced and calibrated to specific settings in level, timing, and EQ, making the monitor ideal not just for recording studios, but also radio, television, and other broadcast environments as well. Although using the GLM software certainly enhances the performance of the 8240A, this monitor can also operate in stand alone mode which is a self-functioning setting with response controls and sensitivity adjustment via the connector panel’s DIP switches. A stored setting mode allows the parameters set within the GLM software to be stored and used in the speakers even when disconnected from the network.
