The new Genelec 8010 is the smallest member of the 8000 product range. The 8000 Series is widely used in broadcast, music, and post- production studios across the world. Its professional heritage is reflected in the compact-sized 8010. Suitable for professional work in small studios it offers accurate monitoring capability with ease of installation. The sound quality is said to make 8010 ideal for small studios, OB vans, and a suitable companion for portable recording devices and other mobile production work. Featuring a balanced XLR input, 3in bass driver, 0.75in tweeter, and efficient Class D power amplifiers – one for each driver – 8010 produces more sound pressure level than


you might expect from a monitor of this size. The Intelligent Signal Sensing (ISS) circuitry saves energy by automatically putting the monitor to sleep when the audio signal has been absent for a while. Once a signal is detected again, the monitor wakes up automatically. This circuitry can be bypassed when the automatic standby function is not desired. A full range of versatile accessories is available for 8010, which cover all mounting needs. For example, an elegant L- shaped table stand can be used to optimise monitor orientation towards the listening position and to minimise undesired sound reflections. www.genelec.com


The KRK Rokit Generation 3 Series from Gibson Pro Audio was announced in August 2013 and features the RP5 G3, RP6 G3, and RP8 G3. This latest generation is a natural evolution of the company’s design philosophy: deliver natural, balanced spectral response, with low distortion and superior imaging. High- and low- frequency amplifier adjustments allow users to tailor the monitor to taste, as well as provide a better ‘fit’ to individual room acoustics; the extended, accurate high- and low- frequency response results in mixes that translate over a wide variety of playback systems. Focusrite distributes KRK in the UK. www.krksys.com


Bringing professional studio reference monitoring to customers at an affordable price, the 3 Series of studio monitors is the first studio monitor line to incorporate JBL’s Image Control Waveguide. Originally developed for JBL’s flagship M2 Master Reference Monitor, the waveguide is the product of intensive R&D, allowing the subtlest detail to be heard, and producing a wide stereo panorama with a solid phantom-centre image. The JBL 3 Series features two models: the LSR305, 5in powered studio monitor boasting a response of 43Hz to 24kHz and a peak SPL of 108dB; and the LSR308, 8in powered studio monitor with a response of 37Hz to 24kHz and a peak SPL of 112dB. As the sound generating engines, the 3 Series’ long- throw woofer and its damped woven composite tweeter are designed from the ground up to reproduce the powerful transients and


micro dynamics of any mix. These drivers deliver deep bass and smooth high- frequency response beyond the range of human hearing. JBL’s Slip Stream low- frequency port design works in concert with the woofer to produce deep bass response at all playback levels. Also, the 3 Series ‘Trim’ switches allow the loudspeaker’s response to compensate for room acoustics, program material, and personal tastes. www.jblpro.com


The RCF AYRA 5 is a two-way reference studio monitor that is designed for nearfield applications as well as being equally suited to a home recording studio. AYRA 5 features a high-quality 1in soft dome tweeter designed on a precision directivity waveguide and a 5in composite fibreglass woofer. It is equipped with a new generation of true active 35W + 20W Class AB design amplifier. The result of this is very high output, extremely low distortion, and an incredible natural sound. At the rear panel of the AYRA there are XLR, Jack, and RCA inputs. www.rcf.it


Mackie MRmk3 Powered Studio Monitors include an all- new minimum-diffraction waveguide for a wider sweet spot and custom-tuned rear porting for smooth, extended bass response. A variety of full-range options and a powerful studio sub are also available. Furthermore, optimised electronics as well as custom-matched amps and drivers add clarity and balance. www.mackie.com

The Neumann KH 310 three-way active tri- amplified monitor features a Mathematically Modeled Dispersion Waveguide (MMD), flexible acoustical controls, various input options, and an extensive range of mounting hardware. This allows the loudspeaker to be used in diverse acoustical conditions, with any Source equipment and in a wide variety of physical locations. The KH 310 represents the latest in acoustic and electronic simulation and measurement technologies to ensure accurate sound reproduction. The KH 310 is designed for use as a near- field monitor, as a front loudspeaker in mid-sized multichannel systems, or as a rear loudspeaker in a larger


multichannel system. It can be used in project, music, broadcast centres, OB vans, and post-production studios for tracking, mixing, and mastering. www.neumann.com
