Question On Impedance Input of Genelec 8040B

Hello,

I have a question regarding a parameter that would help me determine if my source is properly matched to my Genelec 8040B studio monitors. I have purchased a Denefrips DAC with the following specifications I would like to highlight:

Analog Output: XLR at 4.4Vrms +-10%;   Output Impedance of 1250 Ohms. 

In other forums I am looking for a proper pre-amp, prefably passive although I may use active if impedance matching is required. The question I have to ask is, what is the input sensitivity of the input stage expressed in volts for the Genelec 8040B? Secondly what is the maximum rated voltage I can use at the input stage if I were to connect a pre-amp with some gain.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Thank you.

If someone could answer that question and also provide me with the following information to match this preamp that would be helpful as well:

I need the Genelec 8040B

1. Speaker effciency

2. Power amp input impedance

3. Power amp input sensitivity

It would be really helpful for me to find this information.

 

Thanks

Hello!

On all Genelec products, the electronics are one integral part of the entire device and there are no specifications for the driver sensitivity or amplifier circuit separately. The system, in this case 8040B has 10kOhm impedance on the balanced line level input. All public data is available on the product page by downloading the datasheet document.

Best Regards, Markus

I utilized genelec 8040s for quite a long time with a ps sound dac. There are heaps of choices as indicated by spending plan. It bodes well to get one with xlr yields, yet honestly a sub which empowers you to high pass the gens will presumably add more, than an expensive dac over an all around designed fundamental dac. All things considered, a benchmark would have an appropriately ace feel. Then again I spose you could likewise exchange the genelecs for the same computerized model which will take an advanced information, no requirement for a different dac, and DRC tossed in.
