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
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!
