Stunning. Mouth hangs open in disbelief.
Pippington, 11.11.2020
Unbelievably believable sound. Completely convincing. I love the fact that I can move around a bit without moving out of a "sweet spot".
Honestly, if I have to choose between these (even playing streaming Spotify) and going to a live concert, I'd rather stay at home and listen in awe to these incredible musical instruments.
And I'm a professional musician - of the classical persuasion.

They are well worth their eye-watering cost, in my opinion.

Also, Thomann is a very impressive and reliable company. I'm very happy with the service they have provided repeatedly.

Koax rocks!

Zwei Dinge vorweg: Erstens schreibe ich selten Produktbewertungen (macht Arbeit) und zweitens war ich nie ein Genelec Fan (klingen zu "gut", zu "HiFi", zu wenig nach "Arbeits-Abhöre").

Zu den Genelec 8341 muss ich aber doch eine Produktbewertung schreiben, denn die Dinger sind schlichtweg die besten Monitore, die ich je besessen habe.

Um die Genelecs wirklich zu nutzen, braucht man zusätzlich das GLM-Set - ein kleine Box, die mit den Monitoren per Ethernetkabel verbunden wird und die als Host der Genelec Software zum Einmessen der Monitore fungiert. Ein Messmikro ist beim GLM-Set auch dabei. Erst nach dem Einmessen klingen die Monitore wirklich fantastisch. Davor klingen sie gut, haben aber - zumindest in meinem Raum - noch zu viel Bass (auch nach der manuellen Bass-Absenkung per DIP-Schalter). Die Einmessung dauert keine 5 Minuten und bringt wirklich erstaunliche Ergebnisse.

Ein weiteres Zusatzgerät ist der Genelec Lautstärkeregler, der an die GLM-Box angeschlossen wird. Auch sehr zu empfehlen.

Die Genelecs bekommen bei mir ein AES-EBU Digitalsignal direkt aus der DAW, keine Hin-Und-Her Wandlung nötig. Auch das trägt viel zum Sound bei.

Nun nochmal zum Klang: Nach dem Einmessen und den ersten Mix-Tagen bin ich extrem positiv überrascht. Durch den koaxialen Speakeraufbau klingen die Genelecs sehr phasenstabil und "greifbar" - das macht das Mischen einfach. "What you hear is what you get" würde ich sagen. Ich hatte vor langer Zeit mal alte Tannoys, die auch einen coaxialen Aufbau hatten, da war die Phase ähnlich gut, aber der Gesamtklang nicht so ausgewogen wie auf den 8341ern. Und die 8341er klingen (mit dem GLM) überhaupt nicht "steril/HiFi/immer super", wie meine Erinnerungen an ältere Genelec Modelle (wobei meine Genelec Erfahrungen bereits länger zurück liegen).

Für meine Begriffe reicht auch der Bass ohne Subwoofer locker aus, um den Mix bis ganz nach unten beurteilen zu können.

Fazit: billig sind die 8341er sicher nicht. Aber sie sind extrem gute Monitore, die einem wirklich zeigen, welche Frequenzen im Mix wohin gehören. Ich habe mittlerweile aufgehört, meine Mixes im Auto oder in anderen Locations gegenzuchecken. Denn was auf den Genelecs stimmt, stimmt eben. Das spart viel Zeit und Mühe. Als zusätzliche Abhöre reicht mir ein Auratone Pärchen um Lautstärke-Verhältnisse zu pegeln und Basisarbeit zu machen.

Koax rocks! Ich bin sehr glücklich mit meinen 8341ern!
