8130A Digital Active Monitor

The Genelec 8130A was in production between 2007 and 2015.

Due to its compact size, integrated construction, excellent dispersion and precise stereo imaging, the 8130A is ideal for near field monitoring, mobile vans, digital audio workstations, radio and TV broadcasting rooms, multichannel systems, home studios, multimedia applications and also for use with computer soundcards.

The Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW™) technology provides excellent frequency balance even in difficult acoustic environments. The integrated design allows the amplifiers and the drivers to be calibrated as a single unit, eliminating the effects of component tolerances and ensuring consistent quality.
