Sydney: Genelec has been up to something fishy in Darling Harbour. The Finnish active monitoring specialist is providing the sound for the popular Disney/Pixar Finding Nemo exhibition at the Sydney Aquarium. The aquarium is one of the city's tourist hotspots and welcomes more than a million visitors a year.
Genelec has won its sixth prestigious TEC (Technical Excellence & Creativity) award. This time the accolade has been bestowed on the new 7070A active multichannel sub bass system. The 7070A active subwoofer, designed for surround sound or traditional stereo systems, features Genelec's ingenious, new Laminar Spiral Enclosure™ (LSE™) technology. The gently curved, sheet-metal enclosure allows a very long reflex venting tube to be fitted into a small space.
The sleepy, south coast backwater of Bosham, seems a strange place to want to set up a new mastering house, but delve a little deeper and it is easy to see why it all makes sound business sense. For Cut & Groove, is ideally located to mine a rich seam of work, the South Coast Club Scene - the phenomenon that has spawned such mega artists as Artful Dodger, Craig David and Fat Boy Slim.
In terms of UK post production facilities, Clear Cut Pictures is unusual, choosing to be based five miles west of London's Soho district, the traditional home for post production. Additionally they span both audio and video post, treating both seriously.

The Genelec 1037C is a three-way active monitoring system including loudspeaker drivers, speaker enclosure, multiple power amplifiers and low level active crossovers. The fast, low distortion amplifiers are capable of driving a stereo system to peak output levels in excess of 126 dB SPL at 1.7m. Versatile crossover controls allow for precise matching of the speaker system to different acoustic conditions. The bass frequencies are reproduced by a 12" bass driver (the -3 dB point is 35 Hz).
In August, 2002 Genelec opened Genelec China Representative Office in Beijing to support the expanding Chinese market place. As customer support is a key element of the Genelec offering, we now also make our website available in Chinese. Feel warmly welcome to visit www.genelec.cn and invite your friends as well!
While Genelec's new LSE™ subwoofer technology has been winning much praise, little has been said about the background to this revolutionary approach to low frequency speaker design.
The 'secret' behind the Genelec-developed Laminar Spiral Enclosure technology is the way that a long vent with large cross sectional area has been fitted into a small enclosure. Like all the best ideas it is clever but basically simple.
The German company König & Mayer (K & M) has introduced a new floor stand 26740, specifically suited for Genelec 1029A and 1030A. Note: This stand can be bought from the nearest K & M dealer and is currently not sold by Genelec. Click on image to enlarge.
Silverdown Studio has installed a complete 5.1 Genelec monitoring system featuring 1034B, 1031A and the new 7073A sub-woofers, to cope with the heavy demand it has been experiencing for 5.1 work.
With the opening of two new fully digital 5.1 audio post production studios, YLE, the Finnish state broadcaster, is entering the final phase of its nationwide move to an all-digital signal chain in both audio and video.
Lundgaard Studios is a residential studio complex in rural Denmark and a very well-equipped one. Studio owner Henning Tobiasen is an avid Genelec fan that already owns several units; 2 pairs of 1030A, 3 pairs of 1031A, a pair of 1038A and a pair of 1039A. Recently, however, for the main control room, he decided to "go all the way".
