Hi,

I would definitely recommend SAM monitors meaning 8330 because they will offer superior room calibration capability compared to analog models such as 8000 series.

I first used the 8330 that i borrowed from a friend for a while in order to test it out. It didn't work so well for my needs so I opted to get the 8240 which has a better low end. The price was quite hefty compared to the rest but i always prefer to buy quality products that i will not need to change for a long time.

if i go for 8040 and use those switches at the back of the speaker?
8040 have more low end what I actually need for my type of electronic music

Yes, also 8040 has room calibration controls but they are not as accurate as the AutoCal DSP calibration done with SAM speakers. We also have 8240 model if 8330 does not have enough low end.

8240 are too expensive
My budget is 1200 pounds
In Uk 8330 and 8040 are on the same price
Which one will be the best for me?
Cheers

I own several and from my experience go for the 8330 SAM with GLM kit. How reverberant is your room? All the Genelec speakers come default set for Anechoic.

If for budget reason you get the 8030 you will probably want to test the bass tilt -2 and desktop control to on (-4 160hz) if its on your desk. That combo for me works perfect But still test.

I have almost same room 4x4.2

i had  2xG two +F One -> 2x8330 via hifi nuprime dac10h and now im owning 2x8340 via optical-aes/ebu converter and its sounds so fucking great but only in a sweet stop thank god GLM support many different sweet spots. My recommendations is to get 8330 series.

No chances to get sound better atm with any pro or hifi highend speakers without treatment. In sweetspot of course :)
