Genelec 1032c adds auto-calibration and networking software

Posted on: Wednesday 4th of July 2018

genelec_1032c_resolution_magazineThere’s nothing quite like seeing a classic re-invented: the 1032C – one of the world’s most popular two-way nearfield monitors – has been upgraded by Genelec with the features and flexibility of Smart Active Monitoring (SAM). Offering the wide dynamic range, imaging and on/off axis response for which the 1000 Series is known, the 1032C adds monitor auto-calibration and networking software, plus significant across-the-board improvements including a digital input, higher SPL and increased low frequency extension. SAM is the ground-breaking Genelec calibration technology and a foundation for the Genelec Loudspeaker Manager (GLM) software application for PC and Mac. With SAM, the 1032C (£1740) takes its place as part of a family of Smart Active Monitors from across the Genelec range, all of which can be used together to create recallable networks – from stereo, to huge immersive set-ups.

Using the GLM app, 1032C owners can quickly and easily optimise the performance of their set-up for even the most difficult acoustic environments, compensating for factors such as placement and ‘time of flight’ anomalies to facilitate the best possible listening experience within their room. As a latest-generation SAM device, the 1032C also includes Video Delay Compensation, level calibration and input sensing for automatic power saving and wake up, known as Intelligent Signal Sensing (ISSTM). Further refinements have been made to the previous model’s already impressive performance. Custom-designed Class D amplification means a 2.4kg reduction in weight (now 17kg), and a switch mode power supply (with universal voltage), developed in-house by Genelec, brings greater efficiency and savings in power consumption. Compared to the 1032B, the new 1032C has an improved maximum SPL of 114 dB with a frequency response of 40Hz–20kHz. In terms of power, compared to the previous model’s 120W and 180W, the 1032C tweeter and woofer power amplifiers are now respectively rated at 150W and 250W.
