Catch the Tube with Genelec21 September 2011
Genelec has launched a new active stereo loudspeaker for desktop and portable use. The Genelec 6000A Tube is an extremely compact active stereo loudspeaker designed to be used with computers, televisions, and portable audio players.
Designed from the ground up as the perfect portable speaker, the 6000A Tube brings a new way to enjoy Genelec’s professional sound quality wherever and from whatever device you like.
The minimalist Harri Koskinen-designed aluminium enclosure is at home in confined spaces and robust enough for travelling. The features include a remote control and automatic signal sensing function that switches the speaker to stand-by mode if no audio signal is detected for approximately 10 minutes. The real revelation however is that the 6000A Tube is designed to create a diffuse sound field that fills the room with sound effortlessly. Unlike other speakers, the 6000A Tube actually benefits from being placed near an object, wall, or corner, making the sound disperse evenly.
Only a limited number of the 6000A Tube speakers will be made. 1000 units are destined for the Japanese market, while another 1000 are sold exclusively through the Genelec webshop on first come, first-served basis in Europe.
