Re: Ilkka goes Genelec

I'm glad for you Ilkka, although I'm sad to see you go. You deserve it, all your hard work is paying off. It has been a great pleasure viewing your work along with it being so informative. Knowing you has been a treat, aside from that, a real asset! I can only hope your attitude of giving over the years is directed back your way. Thinking back, we also had some fun Congrats my friend..

Hi Ilkka

Do a number of Genelec speakers use PHL drivers; is it possible to make any sort of general (unbiased) statement about the quality of PHL drivers, vs their competitors JBL/ B&C/ etc ? (PM if you prefer)

Thank you
Hi,

You are being correct, we use PHL woofers in our larger main monitors. Though I can't really answer to your second question, other than by saying that the PHL woofers are extremely high quality, though expensive. There's certainly a reason why we are using them.

Hi Steve!

So nice that you dropped by. And thank you, my friend! It has certainly been a treat to get to know you too, but please don't sound like this is the end (of anything), because it isn't. Well of course things are going to change a bit, but in general I'm not going anywhere.

I will reply to that PM of yours in a minute.

And you are spot on about that fun part. Oh the days...

Oh, somehow I sort of figured you were out of here under some sort of time frame. I'll let you fill me in then. I am glad things are changing, but not so much of a change that your going to be gone.

Re: Ilkka goes Genelec

A belated congratulations from a long time lurker on these forums. Along with ATC, Genelec is one of the speaker manufacturers that I respect the most. Basically, any speaker manufacturer that recommends soffit mounting large full range speakers into a wall has physics on their side. Those that ignore this simple acoustical fact are simply controlled more by their marketing departments than their R&D engineers.

Your announcement means I can continue to expect excellent products from Genelec. Good Luck!
