The Genelec M040 active studio monitors strike a perfect balance for project and professional studios. With a 6.5" low end driver and a 1" high end driver, they are capable of effectively reproducing low end frequencies when mixing dance music, as well as less bass-intensive program material such as commercials and acoustic music. Its sound is clear and honest, and mix decisions made on the M040AM can be made with confidence.

For studios with multiple monitor sets, the M040AM is a perfect middle, sandwiched somewhere between an Auratone clone and a monitor set with high power and a subwoofer. They are made from fully recyclable fiber composite material, and feature Genelec's Intelligent Signal Sensing, which powers the unit down after not seeing signal for a while.

Exceptional Monitors


from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about Genelec M040 Active 2-Way Monitor (Each):

I upgraded from Mackie MR5 monitors to these for my home recording studio. The Mackies were great entry-level monitors, but the Genelec M040s are in a whole different league. They are incredibly neutral over a full range of frequencies, and listening to some of my previous mixes revealed some things I would have done differently. Beautiful finish as well with Earth-friendly materials to boot. All the connection options controls you need in the back. They also turn on and off automatically based on signal presence. I use some acoustic foam treatment in a small mixing area (7'X10') with the M040s placed on shelves on Auralex MoPad Monitor Isolation Pads. They sound phenomenal. I couldn't be happier with these. Well worth the price.
