Genelec launches a year of celebrations for landmark 40th anniversary

Written by on January 26th, 2018.      0 comments

Iisalmi, Finland – January 2018... Genelec, the world leader in professional audio monitoring, is proud to launch a year of special events to mark the company’s 40th birthday. Featuring a Summer party, a 40th anniversary book, a special Limited Edition monitor and a high-profile campaign with online music broadcaster Boiler Room, 2018 will be the year that Genelec celebrates four remarkable decades of innovation, industry leadership and impeccable audio.

Back in 1978, when Ilpo Martikainen founded Genelec alongside Topi Partanen, they started a visionary journey that helped to shape the world of professional audio as we know it today and set about their life’s work with the creation of the S30, a milestone in active monitoring originally developed for the Finnish national broadcaster, YLE. The S30, featuring truthful sound and acoustical adjustment capabilities, signalled the company’s unique determination to provide the user with reliable monitoring tools and the ability to calibrate their monitors to suit their own acoustic environment, and these have become the cornerstones of Genelec’s design philosophy ever since.

Driven by the encouragement and inspiration of Genelec’s growing customer base, a succession of achievements, technologies and industry-defining products soon followed, from the widespread adoption of the 1035 main monitor by studios around the globe, to ground-breaking innovations such as the Directivity Control Waveguide, the Minimum Diffraction Enclosure, and the Laminar Spiral Enclosure.
