Genelec G Series

This picture tells most of story (except the most important part) from the Genelec room. They hosted a wonderful demo where each of the four active speakers from their G-Series, the company's first "consumer range" destined for the home as opposed to the recording studio, plus their biggest brother 8260A ($5,639/each) were played for a few minutes and the sound went from good to bigger (right to left). I was actually surprised by how well the tiniest of the Genelec active speakers, the G One filled this large room. But as we went up in size, things got more and more involving and deeper (from a rated 73Hz in the G One all the way down to 45Hz in the G Four to 29Hz for the 8260A).

The G Series, whose industrial design was provided by Finnish designer Harri Koskinen, is built on Genelec's 8000 Series which has been on the market since 2004. Unlike their Pro counterparts, the G Series feature RCA inputs as well as XLRs for the larger G Three and G Four. The cabinets are made from recycled aluminum and come in black and white. Pricing information escaped me but if I find it I will update this post.

I love my Genelecs and would love to add more to my home. 

Only impediment is price, hope these are somewhat lower than the pro models.

Do your Genelecs exhibit any hissing?
