Contest: 30K followers on Instagram!

The contest has now ended. Thank you for participating and congratulations to our winner, @kaivurikimmo!


"@pistorasia2 the reason you should follow @genelec_oy is the same as why I started following them so long ago. It's because they are the shining example of Finnish entrepreneurship - of answering the needs of the customer and going above and beyond. Just two guys who were asked to make something that, quality-wise, wasn't available yet. Those two guys did what was asked of them and did it so well that 40 years later we're still marveling at these exquisite examples of acoustic engineering.

You've seen my Genelec G Ones. You've heard them (as have the neighbors). I remember your face the first time we tried them LOUD and goddamn was it impressive, unbelievably so from such small speakers. These guys don't compromise on acoustic or aesthetic quality.

Even putting aside all that, forgetting for a while the excellence they show in the quality of their work and the textbook example of making a mark on the work, their marketing is what gets me. Remember when we got to see the Weekend Festival backstage artist lounges? The stereos on the walls - guess who made them? Genelec. The stereos atArmins ASOT? Again: Genelec. Even beyond all those artists and events, they still have time to care about us common folk. I remember them having a contest for brand new stereos at TubeCon. I've seen them share tickets to Flow Festival. Hell, even this update right here is remembering we who have supported them all through the years.

All that is why you should follow Genelec."
