Genelec 8430AGenelec’s 8430A SAM Studio Monitor supports direct monitoring of audio-over-IP stream content – the first studio monitor on the market supporting AES67 and Ravenna standards.

Based on Ravenna technology for audio transport over IP networks, the 8430A is also fully AES67-compatible. As a member in the Genelec Smart Active Monitoring (SAM) Series, the 8430 shares the electro-acoustic features, including Genelec’s MDE and DCW technologies, a flow-optimizsed reflex port, very low distortion, high SPL and wide bandwidth. Also, as member of the SAM Series, the 8430 uses the Genelec Loudspeaker Manager (GLM 2.0) control network and software allowing adjustments of all aspects of monitor settings and full multiloudspeaker system control. As a central part of GLM, Genelec AutoCal automatically ensures that every monitor on the network is aligned for level and timing, as well as being compensated for room response anomalies.

The 8430 combines exceptional connectivity; first, for the industry standard AES67 Ethernet audio-over-IP signal via an XLR-housed RJ45 connector, and second, a standard balanced analogue signal input via a standard XLR connector input. The 8430 Ethernet audio streaming capability supports the standard audio sample rates up to 96kHz resolution. With its proprietary class-D amplifier technology, universal mains voltage input and the very high reliability, and support for high accuracy IEEE 1522 v2 precision time protocol based audio clock synchronization, the 8430 meets all the stringent quality requirements of modern audio-over-IP streaming applications.
