Genelec, the leader in active monitoring technology, is proud to introduce the 1032C – an upgrade to one of the world’s most popular two-way nearfield monitors, now with the cutting edge features and flexibility of Smart Active Monitoring (SAM®). Offering the wide dynamic range, pristine imaging and on/off axis response for which the Genelec 1000 Series is known, the 1032C adds the most advanced monitor auto-calibration and networking software, plus significant improvements including a digital input, higher SPL and increased low frequency extension.
Launched in 1992, the 1032A nearfield was immediately hailed as a milestone entry in the Genelec 1000 Series line-up, offering more audio horsepower, a larger 10” woofer and greater directivity than its smaller sibling, the iconic 1031. Now the 1032C fuses a suite of contemporary technologies with the celebrated qualities of the original – including the same drivers, acoustic design and soffit-mountable classic styling. The result is a significantly upgraded monitor built for the most demanding modern music, post-production and broadcast studios, that nevertheless retains the heritage and appeal of both its ‘A’ and ‘B’ version predecessors – a huge sound from a small footprint.
Leading the new additions is the incorporation of SAM, the ground-breaking Genelec technology and a foundation for the Genelec Loudspeaker Manager (GLM™) software application for PC and Mac. Just as the first 1032 included rear-panel DIP switches to allow users to calibrate their system for their working environment, now the 1032C adds to those switches with the most precise and easy-to-achieve auto-calibration system available today. With SAM, the 1032C takes its place as part of a family of Smart Active Monitors from across the Genelec range, all of which can be used together to create recallable networks – from stereo, to huge immersive set-ups.
