Genelec 1032a

Thread Starter 

Hello guys, I would like to hear your opinion on Genelec 1032a, there isn't much about them on internet. Would I need an amp for them? If yes what amp would work well with them?

They are an older genelec incarnation. They are bi-amplified if I recall correctly, thus you do not need to pair them with an external amp.

You don't need an amp, like many monitors they are amplified, here a feedback from one user :

Edit : Personally I have this one : http://www.behringer.com/FR/Products/B3030A.aspx

Truly cheap (~300€)  and largely enough for music listening or mixing your own recording at home.

Yes you only need a line out signal, the volume have to be controlled directly from the source. Their are named studio monitors because normally you use it for mixing musicians records (audio production), the signal response is flat and analytic with a very good resolution and instruments separation.

Personally a feed it with a LittleDot MK3 Tube Pre-Amp to give a touch of warmness for music listening and I can also control the line out volume.
