A pair of Genelecs sit next to Avicii's KRK monitors in his studio. He says "We tested a lot of different monitors. The KRKs were my favourites by far. My manager Ash preferred the sound of the Genelecs so we got those as well – it’s always good to have two sets to A/B on for the final mix."more
Disclaimer: This is a possible assumption, given the size dimentions and aesthetic of these Studio Monitors. If you have any doubt, feel free to comment down below. A pair of Genelec Studio Monitors Speakers can be seen in this Instagram picture, uploaded by the artist himself. Assuming these pair has a 6.5 Woofer Driver each, it could be possible that these might be the 8040A model. More research is needed.more
The Genelec 8040's are significantly flat, yet the sound is incredibly precise, and it feels like everyday is a totally new experience whether i begin on a new project, or continue where i left off.
It helps me keeping my mixdown flow as "boring" as possible, and personally i think that the 8040's have done the best job keeping it that way for me.
It's gonna take a wonder for me to change new monitors from these.
Those Genelec monitors are quite great, but if You want to know, how it will work in home studio - read this awesome study http://sonarworks.com/2014/08/studio-monitor-test-2014-08/ I like the scientific approach of this review. Definitely worth a look, before the decision!
