Smart Active 2-way Nearfield Monitor, 5″ + 3/4″ (Each)

Genelec 8330AP is a compact (5″ woofer) and versatile member of the SAM™ smart active 2-way monitor series.

Before we get to the SAM™ (Smart Active Monitoring) features included, let’s look at why the 8330A looks so much like the 8000 series 8030C.

They both have on board Class D amplification, with 50w going to the 5″ woofer and 50w powering the 3/4″ metal dome tweeter. Both enclosures are the same size (compact), and both ship with ‘Iso-Pod’ (allowing for accurate placement and anti-vibration).

The big difference here with 8330A, is that there are no dip-switches to allow for room control (bass roll-off, treble control, desktop compensation, etc). This is done entirely via GLM – Genelec Loudspeaker Management software, so you’ll need to initially calibrate your monitors and room using the GLM Kit.

GLM software is a highly intuitive and powerful monitor control networking system that manages connectivity to all SAM studio monitors and subwoofers on your network. The software allows adjustment of levels, distance delays and flexible room response compensation equalisation with the state-of-the-art and robust AutoCal™ automated calibration system. All parameters and settings are stored in system setup files or saved in each individual monitor or subwoofer if the GLM network needs to be disconnected.

Quick service and reasonable price. Angus was helpful and transparent.20/07/23 Update. I had an issue with some equipment that I purchased from these guys, and true to form, they were supportive and gave me consistent feedback on the progress of my concern. Elliot and Darren were incredibly committed to getting me a satisfactory result. I have recommended Factory Sound to my mates because I actually believe that they will be taken care of.

The only place to buy pro audio gear from. Been coming here for over 20 years, and a lot of the same staff still look after me. Says a lot about their business. The best service, advice and gear every single time. If they don’t have it, they’ll get it for you. No need to worry about pricing, theirs is ALWAYS the best. All the staff go out of their way to help you, and will always get back to you. Cant’ recommend this place enough, 5 stars doesn’t seem like enough.
