Genelec 8430A IP SAM™ Studio Monitor

The 8430A IP SAM™ studio monitor is a high resolution audio monitoring solution using the power of Smart Active Monitoring™ and GLM™ AutoCal™, automated system calibration, technologies for professional audio-over-IP (AoIP) applications.


The 8430A features Genelec MDE™ and DCW™ technologies, a flow optimized reflex port, high SPL, low noise and wide uncoloured response in a very compact enclosure. The Genelec Loudspeaker Manager (GLM™ 2.0) control network and software allows adjustments of all aspects of monitor settings and full system control. Genelec AutoCal™ allows to automatically align every monitor on the network for level, timing, and equalisation of room response anomalies.


The 8430A Ethernet audio streaming capability is compliant with AES67 and Ravenna industry standards and supports all the typical standard audio sample rates. With its Genelec Class D amplifier technology, universal mains voltage and very high reliability, the 8430 fulfills all the stringent quality requirements of modern IP streaming applications.


The 8430 combines exceptional connectivity options; first, using a RAVENNA/AES67 signal, (the AoIP industry standard) via the XLR-housed RJ45 connector, and second, using a standard analogue signal via a balanced XLR connector. As part of the Genelec SAM Series, the 8430 shares identical electro-acoustic features such as Genelec MDE™ and DCW™ technologies, a flow-optimized reflex port, very low distortion, high SPL and wide, uncoloured response in a very compact enclosure - all this achieves the most accurate sound reproduction possible.
