NATICK, MA, April 8, 2010 â€” Genelec, the worldâ€™s longstanding pioneer in active monitoring, is now shipping its new 8260A Three-Way DSP System. The 8260A breaks new ground in electro-acoustic design, as mechanical, acoustical and signal-processing designs are linked closely together. The 8260A features major advances in audio driver technology, integrated with a sophisticated enclosure design, and Genelecâ€™s proprietary Minimum Diffraction Coaxial (MDCâ„¢) Mid/High driver technology takes a big step in perfecting audio quality in professional active studio monitors.
This breakthrough in coaxial driver design provides extremely accurate imaging and improved sound quality, both on the acoustical axis as well as off-axis. The very smooth frequency response leads to outstanding clarity and definition of the inner details of the audio. The 8260A combines, for the first time, a coaxial driver (MDC) with a modern waveguide technology (Genelecâ€™s Directivity Control Waveguideâ„¢ / DCWâ„¢), ensuring that drivers couple coherently over their full operating bandwidth, as well as creating coincident mid-frequency/high-frequency point source. more
