Genesis Annouces New 6.1e Loudspeaker System

110156.jpg

Seattle, WA — Genesis Advanced Technologies, manufacturer of legendary audiophile loudspeaker systems, announces the debut of the new Genesis 6.1e loudspeaker system. The G6.1e is an Absolute Fidelity two-channel speaker system, and is the latest addition to the Genesis Absolute Surround music and cinema systems. At a recommended retail price of $6,000 per pair, the G6.1e is a breakthrough in affordability for Genesis loudspeakers.

“We’re a market-driven company. We’ve seen our dealers and customers use our G6.1c center channel speakers as left & right pairs for two-channel stereo applications when the full G6.1 was just too much speaker for the given application”, explained Managing Director, Mr. Gary Leonard Koh. “We felt that we could offer a loudspeaker that was better suited to systems smaller in size and budget, while offering the same technical complement and performance of it’s larger stablemate. At the same time, the G6.1e is perfectly able as rear or surround speakers in an Absolute Surround system for multi-channel music or home theater.”

The G6.1e utilizes the legendary Genesis ribbon tweeters – with flat response beyond 36kHz, the exclusive 5″ solid titanium-cone midrange and aluminum mid-bass couplers, in a dipole speaker design. “Through LC tuning, we’ve been able to achieve a frequency response of 48Hz to 36kHz”, stated Arnie Nudell, Genesis Chief Scientist. “That’s pretty remarkable performance for a speaker of this size, at this price point, and adding a Genesis Servo Sub woofer will extend performance right down into the infra-sonic range — 16Hz or better.”

Surround music and home cinema customers will benefit from the G6.1e’s form-factor and performance too. “We strongly believe that surround applications deserve audiophile quality, so we’ve used the exact same components used in our high-end two-channel systems”, explained Scott Garside, Genesis Market Manager. “The G6.1e, in addition to being our lowest-cost, dedicated stereo pair, is equally suited to the roles of stereo pair or surrounds in one of our Absolute Surround systems. It’s the ‘junior’ to our active servo-bass G6.1’s. It offers the same performance, the same “voice”, as our other surround components, and does so at a price that will allow more customers to benefit from the performance level we can deliver.”

“We think of the G6.1e as a building block in configuring your own playback system”, added Koh. “The G6.1e offers a cost effective entry into audiophile performance as a stereo pair, and can then be supplemented with our Servo Sub woofers, or moved to take on surround duties as your Genesis absolute surround system takes shape.”

The G6.1e loudspeaker system retails for $6,000 per pair in standard finish, and will be available through authorized Genesis dealers and distributors worldwide. Complete specifications for the G6.1e loudspeaker system can be found at www.genesisloudspeakers.com.
