Genelec 8381A wins SOS Best Studio Monitor Award 2024

Genelec is delighted to report that our 8381A Adaptive Point Source Main Monitor has been chosen by Sound on Sound Magazine’s knowledgeable readership of audio professionals and enthusiasts as the winner of this year’s highly coveted SOS Best Studio Monitor Award.

Since 2010, Sound on Sound has sought the opinions of their huge worldwide following to decide the winners of a now iconic series of SOS Awards. Each year, the Awards' open online vote highlights the very finest new professional audio devices and software – helping audio lovers everywhere identify the year's best designs and innovations.

After we gave you a first look at the 8381A in May 2023, we were thrilled that many of you joined us at events – all across the globe – to experience the monitor in action. Proudly for us, your feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, and we'd sincerely like to thank you for supporting us once again by voting the monitor winner of this prestigious award – for which we're truly grateful. We’d also like to thank everyone at Sound on Sound and our incredible Genelec team for making this award possible.

Before the launch of the 8381A, Genelec Managing Director Siamäk Naghian reflected on the important role of the new 8381A, saying “The demand for high quality free-standing full-range monitoring systems has been clear from the exceptional response to The Ones and W371A combination. It was also evident that there was a desire from customers for a free-standing system that could deliver even more headroom and increased low-frequency extension. And while we continue to offer a wide range of soffit-mounting main monitors, we’re confident that the flexibility and mobility of a floor-standing adaptive system like the 8381A will provide the perfect solution for any discerning user seeking a truly next-generation sonic reference.”
