    Excellent speakers; excellent service

    I bought this set in fall, 2009, and since then it has been perfect for my home studio--they let me hear everything I'm physically capable of hearing, and the bass from that little subwoofer is enough not to fool me when I move to bigger speakers for performance.

    The connectivity is also nice. All the inputs go into the subwoofer and get mixed together; I think I have three different sound sources going into it at the moment (my USB audio interface, the computer's native sound card, and a synth module). There's a nice separate volume control that can be placed several feet away, so I can turn down the audio when I don't want to disturb my wife.

    But what really impressed me was this: After nearly four years, one channel became hissy. So I checked with Genelec; there's a four-year warranty. I bundled up the speaker and sent it off to Massachusetts on Monday. I didn't spring for overnight shipment, so they didn't gett it until Wednesday. On Thursday I got a phone call saying "We couldn't reproduce the problem." I said "Well, the amount of noise varies from time to time; is there a likely culprit you can replace as a precautionary measure?" Anwer: "Sure, all the electronics are on one board; we'll swap that one out."

    The speaker was on its way back to me Friday and arrived on Saturday (FedEx Ground delivers on Saturdays but not Mondays). Dead silent. Problem solved.

    No electronic product is perfect all the time, so it matters how a company deals with problems after the fact. From this experience, I can recommend them without reservation despite the problem.

    Plus the subwoofer makes a nifty foot rest.

    Superb sound quality

    These monitors are really powerful, surprisingly good sounding and small in size. The subwoofer is not the best one for movies, because it's not able to play super-loud or low, but it's more than excellent for music.

    The special thing about this 2.1 set is the crossover point between the satellites and the subwoofer. The satellites are able to play as low as 73hz, which means the subwoofer will play frequencies below that. And because those frequencies are impossible to localize by human ear, the subwoofer will integrate better to the system.

    I highly recommend you taking this set for a listen, if you can. If you position it correctly (tweeters at ear level, subwoofer level correct etc.) you should be very impressed.

    The only flaw in this system I see is price, but you definitely get what you pay for!

    6010As Sound Too Good?!

    These speakers are really great but may be a little too expensive for what they're really worth. I've had this system for about 1 1/2 years now. I've mixed a few albums on them and a handful of singles. They sound great but when I say too good I mean that there isn't enough detail in these speakers for mixing. They really make your mix sound like it's gelling together but as soon as you take if to a different monitoring source you think, "It didn't sound like this when I mixed it..." These are great for listening to music but I wouldn't get them to use as my primary monitors for mixing.
