The annual Resolution Awards are awarded to products that deliver outstanding quality and innovation in professional audio. The awards are judged by the readers of Resolution magazine, said to be the most well informed in the industry. 

“We’re absolutely delighted to win this award,” comments Terho Savolainen, Marketing Manager of Genelec. “A Resolution Award is the peak of achievement for an audio product and we’re gratified that the readers of the magazine have judged the 8260A worthy of receiving the accolade. Although this award comes on top of many others that the product has won, this further recognition is a great achievement and honour.” 

The new Genelec 8260A 3-way DSP system is a masterpiece in electro-acoustic design which combines advances in audio driver technology, integrated into a sophisticated enclosure design. Featuring breakthrough MDC™ Minimum Diffraction Coaxial Mid/High driver technology, it delivers accurate imaging and sound quality both on the acoustical axis as well as off-axis. The smooth frequency response leads to outstanding clarity and definition of the inner details of the music. 

The Genelec DSP signal processing is responsible for all loudspeaker functions, such as the crossover filters, driver equalizers, driver position alignment, room response alignment, calibration, and equalization related filters as well as distance compensating delays. The Genelec Loudspeaker Manager™ (GLM™) software manages all these functions allowing the 8260A to be used together with other 8200 Series DSP monitors and 7200 Series subwoofers in the same setup. Genelec AutoCal™ automated room calibration and sound system alignment method provides consistent and accurate frequency response for a multichannel audio system in widely varying room environments.
