1238A SAM™ Studio Monitor

Featuring AutoCal™ and GLM™ technologies, the 1238A SAM™ studio monitor is a Class D, tri-amplified monitoring system.

Genelec 1238A SAM studio monitor is the result of 35 years of experience in the design of powerful and accurate three-way systems together with state of the art AutoCal™ and Genelec Loudspeaker Manager (GLM™) control network technologies. GLM allows to automatically align every monitor on the network in terms of level, timing, and equalisation of room response anomalies. Typically flush mounted, the 1238A features a large Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW ™) which provides very precise on- and off-axis imaging even in challenging acoustic environments.
It is the reliable monitor for recording studios, post-production houses, digital mastering facilities, radio and TV broadcasting.
