Styled in a finish dubbed "producer" by this item's manufacturers, the Genelec 8341A is a point-source monitor meant for near-field applications in the realm of pro audio. It features a coaxial design which nestles driver and tweeter—as well as two 6.6” woofers—in one location, thus aligning their acoustical axes, and securing an accurate point of sonic radiation. It’s also worth noting the 8341A’s Intelligent Signal Sensing technology, as well as the connections this technology affords you: ISS automatically detects whether analog or digital sources are being run into the monitor and allows the speaker to produce sound accordingly. To put it another way, one XLR input accepts analog signals, the other XLR takes AES/EBU, and the monitor itself automatically selects the input source.
Unless you don’t want it to, in which case you can make use of Genelec’s GLM software, which can override the automated selecting of signal. It can also help you tune the monitor to your room and facilitate and coordinate daisy-chaining monitors. To make use of the GLM software, you’ll need, at minimum, Cat5 cables for routing to/from the monitor to a GLM adapter (available separately). You’ll note that RJ45 ports are provided for this very purpose. An XLR output jack is also on hand for sending identical copies of incoming AES/EBU signals to other monitors.
For standalone usage, DIP switches and a rotary control for level are offered on the rear of the monitor. Here, you’ll also find a reflex port to better direct low-end energy. An Iso-Pod stand is included to facilitate isolation from aurally deleterious surfaces. Other assets, such as the 8341A’s acoustically concealed woofers, minimum diffraction coaxial construction, and proprietary waveguide, are further expounded upon in the features section.
