Pro speaker specialist Genelec is entering the home audio market with a range of compact models which it will debut at ISE 2013. In addition to proffering the brand's studio heritage, the new G and F Series monitors and subwoofers blend sustainable materials with energy saving refinement.

The models feature Genelec's Power Management Technology which drops power consumption to less than 0.5w if no signal is present in the audio input for approximately one hour. The kit has also been designed to meet the coming ErP Energy Related Products (ERP) directive which mandates that products have an acceptable ecological profile in order to carry the CE mark. The company is particularly proud of the green vision underpinning the models; cabinets are manufactured from recycled aluminium which can be reused indefinitely. 

Tomi Hassinen, International Sales Manager for Home Audio at Genelec, says the introductions "represent a new blueprint for home audio loudspeakers," adding: "The professional quality performance alongside the recycled materials and our green manufacturing philosophy add up to a future-proof package that is designed for broad appeal across the home audio and small installation sector. We're proud to be introducing them to the systems integration community at ISE 2013."

The aluminium clad G Series will launch with four models, all promising "neutrality of sound, accuracy of the soundstage and unsurpassed reliability." Room response controls allow them to be adjusted for optimum performance in any environment, while the distinctive Minimum Diffraction Enclosure Directivity Control Waveguide aids acoustic design. The F Series subwoofers feature a variety of inputs, including line level LFE for home cinema systems.

Genelec can be found on Stand 1-G90 at ISE 2013. The show runs at the Amsterdam RAI, January 29-31.
