Thank you for all the years of Community discussions and activity!

The time has come for us to retire the community forums, but we will keep everything available for reading. There is a lot of valuable content written over the years, and you'll be able to access all of that. However, no new posts can be written, or old posts modified.

If you have questions, we recommend you use the Support function on the bottom right corner to contact our Customer Support directly.

Alternatively, if you wish to engage in a community discussion with other people, there are many active forums available. There is also an active, fan managed GENELEC COMMUNITY in Facebook, and many Genelec employees are active in the discussions there.

We are sorry for any possible inconvenience this may cause you, but we hope to hear from you through the other channels mentioned above.

8040 direct to iphone

I just bought a Xlr to minijack so I could connect my 8040 directly to my iphone, but when I plat the Sound seems to stutter and some of the Sound are missing. Do I need a soundcard for it to work?

It appears your device output Vrms is too low. You may want to toy with the input sensitivity dial at the back of your monitors (search this sight for more information).

 

If that of no succor, consider purchasing a USB DAC. A very good one is Audioquest Dragonfly Red. Not only will greatly improve you sound, but it will also bump up the Vrms. It’s a small stick.

 

Still, I would drop a line with them:
