The Genesis IM8300's were developed by Arnie Nudell and Paul McGowan, both of whom had left their original founding company's to partner together in Genesis Technologies Inc. After the two departed the assets and name was acquired by Gary Koh whom continues producing Genesis speaker systems to this day to the same or greater high standards as set by Arnie Nudell. These are terrific speakers! Fantastic imaging, tonal balance, depth, bass response and electrifying dynamics with enough power (300W tube).
They are demanding speakers - they have to be about 4ft (or more) away from the rear the wall and carefully moved apart until you get a precise image. They must be bi-wired with really, really good speaker cable. They cannot be toed-in even a fraction - you have to stretch some string across the front of the speakers and use it as a plumb line. And you have to have very good equipment. They must be put on the Genesis stands in order to lean back at the right angle. They are not suitable for a home theatre set-up.
The speaker is not made of MDF, but made up of a three-layer sandwich of woods. The cylindrical shape is ideal for rigidity and avoiding resonance peaks without the complexity introduced by internal bracing. And it is finished in a very durable eco-friendly black that just loves to be polished with car wax. I loved the shape.
