    Default Yamaha NS1000M Genelec version

    Finnish National Broadcasting company had Yamaha NS1000M as their standard monitor.
    This was a special version modified by Genelec. They removed the original crossover
    and bolted on an active crossover and three 120 W amplifiers.
    This was called Genelec Triamp S45YA.

    I have heard that 90 pairs were ever made.
    It is unknown outside Finland.

    I am chuffed that I am getting my hands on a well preserved pair this week.

    Here is the front:


    And the back:


    Will post better pictures later this week.

    There are times when you canít do the sensible thing, when you canít act like a responsible adult at all; you just have to do whatever insane thing comes into your head. When bad people do it they end up murderers, when good people do it they end up heroes, and when the rest of us do it we end up looking like total idiots. But whenís that ever stopped us?

    Exactly, look at Genelec.com. No mention there. I guess they want to forget the Yamaha origins.
