3-way active nearfield monitor with DSP and Minimum Diffraction Coaxial (MDCTM) driver technology. Matte grey painted finish
The upgraded 8351B manages to improve on the exemplary performance of its iconic 'A' version predecessor by offering increased SPL, additional room compensation EQs equalised delay and enhanced HF response.
Offering the same extraordinary imaging and uncoloured precision of its smaller 8331 and 8341 siblings, the 8351B has the additional benefit of a higher maximum SPL for longer listening distances - plus even greater low frequency extension.
The Ones family of point source monitors promotes faster and more consistent decision making, but also allows you to work reliably on longer sessions - because unnatural imaging, a main contributor to listener fatigue, is minimised. Dispersion is controlled over an unusually wide frequency range thanks to the large integrated waveguide (DCW?) with dual hidden woofers; and orientation may be either horizontal or vertical. Their looks are striking too, whichever way you turn them.
As part of the Genelec smart active monitoring range, the 8351B can be configured, calibrated and controlled using our powerful GLM software, enabling it to adapt to your acoustic space and compensate for any detrimental room influences. So whether you are working in stereo, surround or immersive formats, you can be confident of producing mixes that will translate beautifully to other rooms and systems.

I spent quite some time testing out different speakers before making my decision to buy the 8351b and I have to say I'm more than happy with my upgrade. These speakers far outshine anything else in its price range and in conjunction with the GLM Correction System you can achieve an extremely focused and flat response in almost any room. Lire plus
After setting these up in my room, I immediately noticed a focus across the whole frequency range. Now I can mix a song in any musical key and hear everything precisely. Mixes have never translated so well from my studio to every format from the Car, to Ear buds, laptop speakers, etc?..
My room is far from perfect and with these I'm able to achieve the same results as expensive treated studios that cost over 100k to build. So I would say that the value for money makes these speakers worth much more than the asking price and would be the most cost effective economical solution to having world class studio monitoring that is balanced and true without having to shell out thousands building a treated room.
