A loudspeaker ahead of its time

20 years after the launch of the original 6040A, the newly re-imagined 6040R now features professional grade LF drivers, proprietary Class D power amplifiers, and tight integration with our GLM calibration software. This allows the 6040R to deliver clean performance, a consistently smooth frequency response, precise imaging and low distortion – even in challenging acoustic environments.

Pure sound. Finnish design.

Created in close collaboration with leading designer Harri Koskinen, the fluid curves of the 6040R are fashioned from die-cast recycled aluminium. Not only does this design approach create more truthful, less coloured loudspeaker performance, it also means that the 6040R will become the aural and visual centrepiece of any listening environment. Built to the highest environmental standards, the 6040R will provide decades of trouble-free performance.

FAQ

The 6040R is a two-way floor standing smart active loudspeaker. It’s a re-engineered version of the original 6040A loudspeaker model with award-winning industrial design by Harri Koskinen, now with professional bass driver technology, proprietary class D power amplification, internal DSP circuitry and close integration with GLM loudspeaker manager software.

While many customers will consider the sound quality and aesthetics of the 6040R as perfect for home audio use, performance-wise it is entirely suitable for professional monitoring applications as well. The 6040R features the same uncompromising design philosophy as all Genelec loudspeakers, and we believe that the performance requirements for good professional and home audio loudspeakers are the same.

If you want to extend the low frequency response of a 6040R system and increase its overall playback level, then adding a subwoofer is recommended. A subwoofer will not only reduce the demands on the 6040R to reproduce low frequencies (therefore increasing the ‘headroom’ of the system), using one or more subwoofers can also help produce a smoother, flatter bass response – particularly in challenging rooms.
