I originally set my genelecs up on my desk like in the first photo and enjoyed the sound some what, but moving them onto some books to elevate them with my ears improved the quality of the high range frequencies. I was really impressed when paired with a subwoofer how full the sound was.
... So I bought 8050s with the money from a mountain of audio equipment I've piled up over the past five years. To me, accurate sound is my goal. I'm trying to get some speaker stands to elevate the speakers to get the best sound of the 8050s.
edit: images are being odd for me, imgur it is!

tl;dr these speakers carry the same quality high frequencies as other genelec speakers. the 'imaging' will only be as good as your speaker placement. and the subfrequencies will not impress you, but that can be fixed with a cleverly hidden away subwoofer.

I’m glad to see Genelec being dropped, but I was not a fan of the 6010, and these are basically their successor.
These are tiny speakers and sound it. They really don’t have enough bass to stand on their own as general music speakers. You definitely want a sub.
I have some very nice subs in my house but I couldn’t get a good blend with my sub under my desk. You have to cross over the sub around 90-100Hz to get a good blend but I still had a bit of a dip in the upper bass. I verified the blend with REW and I couldn’t get the sound smooth between 90-120Hz, so I could always tell that I was missing some sound in the upper bass and that there were two separate sources of sound (one from the sat, and one from the sub)
I decided to go for slightly larger monitors that went down to about 60Hz and was able to get a good blend with my sub. Because I was able to cross over at a lower point, I don’t notice any directionality of the bass.
For those looking for fewer boxes in their room, I recommend looking at the larger Genelecs or other brands.

Uh, you took that way out of context. The text reads: "If you were in the market for Genelec’s discontinued 6010, this is the closest you’ll come in a brand new unit."
This means you can't get the 6010 brand new since it's discontinued, but you CAN get these G Ones new, and they are close.

I'm pretty happy with the Control Freak. It's nice that it's available in both RCA and balanced XLR variants to accommodate different system setups. I'm using the RCA version with the Genelec speakers. The knob has a decent amount of heft and nice solid base that keeps it from sliding around the desk too much. There is a slight L/R channel imbalance at very low volume settings that goes away once the output is turned up a bit.
I also considered the TC Electronic Level Pilot but just couldn't justify the almost $100 for a pot and metal knob.

Man, that's a huge DAC when compared to the speakers.

the struggle is real; inb4 they dont arrive before christmas
Another update for the group. These were delayed en route to our warehouse due to a late trailer delivery and currently we are not seeing an ETA from the tracking info. We have followed up with our shipping partner and will call them first thing tomorrow to see what the hold up is about. We will update the group as soon as we have some visibility on this.
Expect an update from us on 12/18 or sooner if something comes up.
