Natick, MA (October 27, 2014)—Dallas Audio Post recently became the first U.S. installation of Genelec’s new 1237A Tri-Amplified Smart Active Monitor (SAM) system.
The current 10,500-square-foot facility was built from the ground up about two and a half years ago, and is the fourth facility that the firm has had since its founding. According to Roy Machado, Dallas Audio Post president and creative director, “If you go back through our history, Dallas Audio Post has been a Genelec user since its inception 20 years ago. We started out using 1030As in our first incarnation, and as time moved along, we started using 1032s for one of our rooms in an LCR format with an array of 1031As for surround. We also had another room that was using 8050s. So we’ve always had a lot of trust in Genelec monitoring, and the quality of our mixes was very solid and would transport well to broadcast or live environments. Moving forward to this facility, we still have one room that is outfitted with 1032s in LCR and a 1031 array for surround mixing.”
Machado continues, “In our current facility, we have a medium- to large-sized room, and we had been using the 8050s, but wanted something a bit larger. So when we heard that Genelec was coming out with a 1237A, we were very interested in those because we knew not only that the speaker would sound great, but that the integration of onboard DSP and GLM software would deliver something great for us. As soon as we could, we called our dealer and started the ball rolling to be one of the first, if not the first, 1237A facility. We sourced them through Sweetwater Sound and senior sales engineer Robert Williams. I think we ended up getting serial number 2 and serial number 4!”
