Genelec G Series concern

Genelec G Series concern

Youngling Posts: 1 Join Date: 1/10/13 Recent Posts
The moment i read upon on the Genelec G series auto standby power save feature two concerning things come in to my mind.

1. Will there be audible sound(pop etc...?) whenever the speaker goes in to or comes out of standby?
2. Will the standby feature cause a delay when powering back up?

... now i kinda wish there was a dip switch to turn that feature off in a worst case scenario :D

Hi,

1. There will be a same kind of sound as you would turn on/off the speakers manually.
2. Power up delay is around 0.5 seconds.

The ISS function has been implemented in the G series to fulfill the European regulations. It cannot be disabled in the current products.

hi,

would it be possible to mitigate/remove this pop, through engineering/design, from the home audio (G- and F-series) product line? Genelec R&D boys take note! ;)

i bought G-Two and F-One speakers for my SONOS system in bedroom with the intention to use the set-up as an alarm clock. the loud audible pop, especially from the F-One, instead of nice music was a really unpleasant/annoying way to wake up in the morning.

i returned the speakers after a week, which is a shame as the G-Two/F-One-combo sounded great!

best regards,
n

i just saw the announcement for the new improved G Two and G Three models. Has this issue been tackled with the new models?

Hi!

There are improvements in the overall design, since the new versions have new electronics inside.

hey markus,

i'm not sure what you mean with that. does that mean that the audible pop from the ISS function is still there?

All sounds/noises related to the ISS function have been minimized to as low as possible level.
