Genelec to launch G Five loudspeakers at High End Munich

"High End has become an important international event for all home entertainment enthusiasts and especially for audio aficionados"

Genelec is expanding its home audio range at High End Munich to include the G Five loudspeaker for home theatres and large living room spaces. The new addition to the G Series loudspeakers and F Series subwoofers completes Genelec's home audio range, offering audiophile clarity in the home for all listening requirements from laptop loudspeakers to large home theatre projects.


"High End has become an important international event for all home entertainment enthusiasts and especially for audio aficionados," says Lars-Olof Janflod, Marketing and PR Director at Genelec. "We see no distinction in quality between the pro-audio world and our home audio range and are proud to present the latest addition to the G Series, the G Five, at High End Munich this year."

The new G Five has the capability of over 120 dB of peak SPL per pair combined with a low frequency response extending down to 35 Hz. As with the rest of the G and F Series, loudspeakers and subwoofers, the G Fives are available in Polar White and Mystic Black and combine the same positive attributes that has seen Genelec remain an industry leader in the pro-audio sector for over 35 years: neutrality of the sound, accuracy of the soundstage and unsurpassed reliability.

Underpinned by Genelec's commitment to sustainability and quality, the G Five comes with a five year warranty and features Harri Koskinen's award-winning design in a compact aluminium housing. Room response controls are included for system calibration and the loudspeakers include Genelec's intelligent power saving feature, ISS, which switches the loudspeakers to standby mode to save energy after a period of inactivity.

Following this launch, Genelec's G Series now has five models, namely G One, G Two, G Three, G Four and G Five. The subwoofer range, F Series, includes F One and F Two. The G Five will start shipping in the autumn.
