G five vs 8050B

Can anyone tell me the difference between those speakers?
From the specs I don't see a difference except the analogue RCA input for the G5.

Thanks a lot,

Serge

Hi Serge,

Same speaker as far as performance goes. The G series is designed for home use by the addition of an RCA input and you can turn off the LED. This has been the case with Genelec for many years, eg HT210 & 1032, the g2's are same as 8020, the 3's the same as 8030 and 4's the same as 8040.

Thank you Steve.

Strange they make 2 different speakers with such few differences. But, I don't care much, I'll go for the DSP version anyway.
