I am a brand new Genelec user, just got my 8260:s today, home use.
Had them for test during easter, time has been long waiting.

Congratulations Lefa,

I have done a couple of demonstrations of 8260's for home use, i think quite a few will be sold. The speaker is unbelievable, i am typically getting flat LF down to 18Hz, and the mids are phenominal :D

Truly a ground breaking speaker.

Hi Leif,

totally missed your picture. Nice, very nice speakers. I envy you. The stereo width looks pretty narrow though, is this still 60 degrees ???

Picture angle somehow distorts the distance, they are in a pretty good equal sided triangle with the listening position.

The important question - how do you like them? How would you describe its sound signature?

Like them very much.

I am not into hifi or high end jargon, but my layman's description with common language would be clear, natural, in focus.
I have heard panel speakers once (Quad ESL 2905), 8260´s are not as clear and defined in vocals but better than any boxed speakers i have heard. Of course bass is impressive too, definitely no sub-woofer needed.
