Sonalysts Inc., a New England-based audio and video post-production facility, has installed a new state-of-the-art 5.1 surround monitoring system in its Studio A. The setup comprises five Genelec 1031A bi-amplified monitors and a Genelec 7070A active subwoofer. The system, purchased from Parsons Audio of Boston, was installed this summer and immediately put to work on a wide variety of projects, including television broadcast commercials, special interest video and multichannel music remixes.

The installation was part of a significant upgrade of Studio A, which also included a transition of all technology platforms to digital and upgraded acoustical treatments. “We redid Studio A from scratch, and the Genelec monitors were key to upgrading the performance of the room,” said Curt Ramm, director of audio post-production at Sonalysts. “They’re perfect for the size of the room and sound great. I like them as much as the Genelec 1031A speakers I’ve used for near-field monitoring for years, which are also part of the studios speaker array. The 1031As are exceptionally flexible. Since they’ve been installed, we’ve used them on 5.1 music remixes, on commercials for companies like A.J. Wright and Blue Cross/Blue Shield, on special-interest music and video projects for the Mohegan Sun Casino, and on multiple corporate videos. We love the way they sound and how well they work across a wide spectrum of project types.”

Sonalysts consulted with Parsons Audio in the selection of its new 5.1 monitoring system. “They came to us and had a lot of questions about what the best components for a 5.1 monitoring system would be for their needs,” said Les Arnold, Parsons Audio's sales executive. “We didn’t hesitate to suggest the Genelec 1031A monitoring system, and we sent one to the facility for them to check out. It was exactly what they were looking for: self-powered, reliable and accurate.”
