Genelec is promoting the use of its monitoring at Minnesota Public Radio.
The public radio network is opening an expansion of facilities in St. Paul, more than doubling its headquarters. Nineteen new studios, control rooms and edit suites are outfitted with Genelec monitoring.
Spaces include recording studios, control rooms and edit bays. Four control rooms are fitted with Genelec 8030A monitoring systems and 7050B active subwoofers; two control rooms have Genelec 8040A monitors and 7060A subs.
Two broadcast studios employ Genelec 8040A monitors, while the news booth uses Genelec 8020As. Ten edit suites are equipped with Genelec 8020A monitors and 7050B subs.
Already in use were 1030A monitors in MPR’s recording studio, and S30D monitors in the broadcast studios and control rooms of the original facility. A new satellite uplink facility uses Genelec’s 8040A monitoring system.
Among the company’s offerings at NAB, Genelec showed its smallest speaker system to date — the new 8020A, which measures 8-7/8 by 6 by 5-5/8 inches. The system is intended for monitoring in difficult listening environments, particularly those characterized by lack of space. The 7050B LSE subwoofer is described as a partner to the 8020A for stereo and surround applications.
The 8020A Bi-Amplified Active Monitor retails for $430, while the 7050B Active Subwoofer lists for $1,095. A three-piece 8020 TriPak retails price of $1,825.
