The Genelex 8010 active monitor is smallest member of the 800 series, but don't let size fool you, it packs a serious punch because it's built with the same technology and attention to acoustic detail as the bigger monitors in the range.
With more and more music listened to on Laptop speakers and cheap earphones it's never been more important to reference your mixes on small, but flat response, monitors. The Genelex 8010 are are great solution because they won't colour the sound but still give you an impression of the mix through small speakers. If you only mix on large monitors you risk making mixes that don't work for the end listener!
Of course the other great benefit of the 8010 is portability. It's really important to KNOW your monitors well so if you're always moving from studio to studio why not have a pair of 8010s you can take with you for consistency!
