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.

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.

Sorry about the late response group. Our update tracker was having some issues recognizing dates and this seems to have fallen through the crack. Our apologies for that and a promise that the rest of the drop will run smoothly.
In regards to the drop, the order has been shipped and is en route to our warehouse now. If everything goes to plan on the shipping front these will come in 12/12 or at latest 12/15. I have flagged this drop as a priority and our team will focus on getting it packed as soon as it comes in.
Expect an update from us on 12/15 or sooner if these get in on Friday.

could we get a follow up drop of the F one or F two speaker? ... these are incredible speakers by themselves, but such a small sub driver can't drive the full freq range. with genelec's subwoofer, this would be the perfect set up.

The paper specs don't seem compelling for the price...the frequency response only goes down to 73Hz, the maximum loudness is only 93dB SPL, and the maximum power rating is only 12 watts per speaker. They do have an impressively flat frequency response and they perform rather well for only having 3" drivers...the emphasis of this drop should be impressive sound in a small package... but it should not be implied that these could replace towers or even a half decent bookshelf speaker.
I have a hard time believing these could be better than the Master Class 2504 with a small amplifier, for example. https://www.massdrop.com/buy/centrance-master-class-2504-speakers

The Master Class are four times the volume on a desk. And I agree, for a huge desk, or a small TV room the master class may have more output capability. Are they better? Depends almost totally on where your monitors will be placed in a room and how close they are to you.

My curiosity was piqued by your comment that the Master Class are 4x the volume versus the Genelec G One so I did some simple comparisons.
Dimensions for MasterClass 2504 (LxWxH): 8.15 x 5.71 x 9.06 inches Dimensions for G One (LxWxH): 7.69 x 4.75 x 4.5 inches
If we only consider volume, the MasterClass 2504 is 2.5x larger than the G One. There is no denying that the G One is one compact speaker but the MasterClass 2504 is by no means a large speaker ~ its footprint is fractionally wider than an 8.5x11 inch piece of paper folded in half and at 9 inches tall, it's the same height as the Creative Gigaworks T20 which is known as being a compact yet good 2.0 speaker system. If we compare the footprints (LxW) of the G One and the MasterClass, we see that the MasterClass 2504 is only needs ~27% more space.
Unless there was a strict vertical constraint, I don't think 5 inches or 9 inches matters all that much. If we start considering manufacturer recommendations for placement, these differences in physical dimensions start to matter even less ~ Both Genelec and CEntrance recommend using a stand of some kind to elevate the speakers above the plane of the desk and leaving several inches of space around the speakers for best sound. Also, while I haven't compared these two speakers side by side, I would imagine that the G One's rear-firing bass port would need more room behind the speaker than the MasterClass 2504's front-firing port.
Hmm. It's kind of funny ~ I initially mentioned the MasterClass 2504's because there were offered here on MassDrop, but after typing this up, I might have convinced myself to get a pair.

These are truly great speakers, extremely compact size, very durable aluminium construction and great big sound. With the F One sub, these will even embarrass some much bigger floorstanding speakers.

I own a pair of the older 6010 model as desktop speakers. Having done some comparisons, these easily outshine many monitors in a similar price range but have a deceivingly small form factor. Excellent speakers!

a friend of mine was doing demos with these and I was absolutely blown away by the sound quality. Doubly so because they look like some ugly generic speakers. They have a great full range.
