Genelec’s SE DSP monitoring system Natick, MA (October 19, 2007)-At the recent AES Convention, Genelec launched its SE (Small Environment) DSP monitoring system, which has been designed with an aim to solve many of the acoustic problems associated with small recording and mixing environments. The SE system targets near-field monitoring, mobile/location recording, digital audio workstations, broadcast and TV control rooms, surround sound systems, home studios and multimedia applications.
The system combines the new SE7261A 10-inch DSP subwoofer with 8130A digital input active monitors (5-inch bass drivers and 3/4-inch tweeters), as a sub-assisted stereo or multichannel reference system. The system also features new GLM (Genelec Loudspeaker Manager) SE software, which provides the graphic interface to help speed users through system setup and AutoCal acoustic calibration.
The new SE7261A active DSP subwoofer includes 8-channel AES/EBU bass management; four notch filters applied to sub channels; and AutoPhase sub integration. The 8-channel high-pass outputs to 8130A each have: two notch filters; time of flight compensation; level alignment; and video display delay compensation. The subwoofer’s frequency response is 19-100 Hz.
The complementary 8130A active monitoring system features 192 kHz/24-bit digital audio interface; Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW) technology for frequency balance in difficult acoustic environments; integrated design so that the amplifiers and the drivers can be calibrated as a single unit; and low distortion due to a new rear reflex port design. The system’s frequency response extends down to 55 Hz (-3 dB).
