We asked people to guess which model the millionth monitor would be, and now we’re ready to reveal the answer – the 8351A SAM Studio Monitor. We will contact the winner of the #MillionthGenelec competition by the end of this year.

Most importantly, the participants helped us to help others. For every entry we received, we will make a donation to Resonaari Special Music Center, bringing music education and opportunities to those with special needs. Thanks to you, as Genelec celebrates the remarkable milestone of producing one million monitors, a whole new generation of musicians is just getting started.

”When we built the first active monitor loudspeaker almost 4 decades ago I could have not imagined that one day we would be assembling the millionth loudspeaker. Today, we have made it. It is like a dream” said Ilpo Martikainen the founder of Genelec when the millionth of Genelec monitor was assembled in Iisalmi, Finland.

“For almost 4 decades our monitors have been used in the most challenging environments in various professional audio applications all over the world. Built-to-trust and sustainability are the cornerstones of the Genelec premium brand and its quality manufacturing. It is just amazing that, since 1978, there has not been a single Genelec’s monitor for which we have not been able to offer spare parts and support if it has been necessary at all”, pointed out Siamäk Naghian, Managing Director of Genelec.
