8430A

IP SAM™ Studio Monitor

The 8430A is the world’s first AoIP studio monitor, allowing reference-quality monitor performance to integrate directly into your IP workflow.

The 8430A was in production between 2016 and 2023.

Total compatibility

The explosion in the growth of networked audio has been huge, and the 8430A’s connectivity allows direct monitoring of AoIP streams, with all the precision and clarity that audio professionals have come to rely on from Genelec. Based on the Ravenna IP protocol, with full AES67 support for total compatibility, the 8430A is the natural choice for today’s sophisticated production environment.

Optimised listening

As a fully-fledged Smart Active Monitor, the 8430A integrates tightly with our GLM calibration software to fully optimise your IP-based monitoring set-up for your listening environment. This means you can always be confident of producing mixes that translate beautifully, even if you are working in challenging broadcast environments with only rudimentary acoustic treatment.

FAQ

Genelec products are designed to be used indoors and in spaces that have controlled temperature and humidity. In hot and tropical countries, broadcasting stations, radio, TV and recording studios usually have air conditioning systems to keep such environmental factors under control. It is not recommended, for example, to use Genelec products in an environment where the ambient temperature is above 30 degrees Celsius (86 F). More details on the environmental requirements are available from the Genelec factory on request.
