Following closely on the heels of holding several listening events over the past few months at Nashville’s Addiction Sound Studios, we have formalized a strategic alliance with the studio and its management. Under the terms of the agreement, Addiction Sound Studios will become a showcase venue for Genelec, where members of the Nashville music community can now audition a wide selection of Genelec Active Monitors in a controlled studio environment. Addiction Sound is a private studio of legendary Journey keyboardist, songwriter and multi-platinum artist Jonathan Cain and famed multi-platinum, multiple Billboard #1-charting producer, mixer, engineer and multi-instrumentalist David Kalmusky.

“This relationship with Addiction Sound Studios has been an evolving one and will now provide end users and clients of our local Nashville dealers the ability to evaluate and listen to our monitors – with their own reference CDs or line-in program material if they choose – in order that they get the most accurate sonic picture when making a purchasing decision,” stated John Whitcore, Genelec Inc. Territory Manager. “Conveniently located in the heart of the city’s Berry Hill studio neighborhood, our relationship with Addiction will provide Genelec a larger footprint in Music City and also offer us a venue to also hold special events throughout the year.” 

As part of the new relationship, Addiction Sound Studios has recently acquired several pairs of Genelec Active Monitors, including 8351 Three-way Smart Active Monitors™ (part of the recently introduced “The Ones” series); 8350A Smart Active Monitors; and 1238A Three-way Smart Active Monitors.

Addiction Sound Studios is located at 506 East Iris Drive, Nashville TN 37204. End users interested in scheduling a one-on-one appointment should use the contact page at
