Genelec 1234AGenelec’s 1234 Smart Active Monitor (SAM) System aims to achieve ‘accurate and powerful sound reproduction in demanding recording and mixing environments’, primarily recording studios, postproduction houses, digital mastering facilities, radio and TV broadcast.

Supplied with a RAM XL (Remote Amplifier Module), the 1234 SAM System is a high-performance, large main monitor with a system frequency response of 29Hz to 21kHz, and capable of delivering 125dB SPL at 1m. It is powered by Genelec-designed class-D amplifiers providing 2x 750W, 400W and 250W of short-term power for the woofers, midrange and tweeters, respectively.

The system’s 160l enclosure houses two 12-inch drivers and a proprietary 5-inch midrange driver as well as a 1-inch treble driver mounted in a large Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW). With Genelec’s DCW providing a wide and controlled listening area, early reflections are minimised for accurate sound reproduction both on- and off-axis. The dual-woofer design extends the control of the directivity to low frequencies, and the Intelligent Signal Sensing (ISS) circuitry saves energy by automatically putting the monitor to sleep when the audio signal has been absent for a period of time.

The system is controlled via Genelec proprietary Loudspeaker Manager (GLM) network and software. Genelec’s intelligent SAM technology integrates the system into the listening environment by automatically compensating for detrimental room influences. This enables computer controlled, flexible networked monitors and subwoofers to be aligned and adjusted for level, time-of-flight, and room response compensations.

‘We’re delighted to unveil the 1234 SAM System,’ says Lars-Olof Janflod, Marketing & PR Director at Genelec. ‘The 1234 SAM System is able to offer neutral sound reproduction in even the most challenging of environments. Its faithful reproduction and cutting-edge design ensures that it is an excellent addition to our SAM product offering, and illustrates Genelec’s commitment to remain at the very forefront of high performance monitoring systems.’
