8260A Overpriced? - Forum
Oftentimes i've thought that we're paying about the same per kilogram of speaker, in any application, from any manufacturer. since a 8260 weighs about as much as pair of 8050s it should be around 2500, maybe 2800 with that digital thingiy.
I contest you to beat my logic, genelec.
I'm a proud owner of 8250s + 7260 in my studio. The 8250s are excellent but too bright without serious room treatment. The coax system is worth every penny to invest in the sound instead of the room. Problems went away and now a clear midrange reference is available.
Underpriced in some ways too though. There are few other speakers that can extend as low, and stay +/-1dB. Even Genelec's newer "The Ones" can't do that. The M2 by JBL does it for $20k and three times the cabinet volume.
A Kii Three or Dutch & Dutch 8C might sound better though, and are about $12-14,000 in the US compared to the Genelec which is about $10k if you can find them new.
