Hi-Fi Simplified / Build Quality
Geneva cabinetry is high quality furniture. The wood cabinets are made by hand. Each one takes more than a week to complete. The woodworkers and painters take hundreds of steps, with meticulous attention to detail.
The genuine American walnut veneer is hand-sanded. The lacquer is applied by hand. There are up to eight layers of high-grade piano lacquer applied to each gloss finish. It’s why WIRED magazine hailed Geneva on its debut as “a Steinway” giving the iPod generation quality and sound on the scale of a grand piano.
The wood cabinets are hand-buffed. Each one is hand-polished. It’s a dedication to innovation and quality craftsmanship, so Geneva products will be enjoyed for years to come.
Geneva Sound Systems are deceptively simple on the outside. But inside, they are filled with advanced technology. The Swiss engineers fuse many functions into a single cabinet. They use advanced electronics, patented acoustics, the best amplifiers, speakers, tuners, and components. They offer up to 600 watts of pure digital amplification in one piano-lacquered wooden cabinet. These distortion-proof enclosures contain a seamless integration of digital amplifier, digital crossovers, high quality drivers, media players, and power supply. The larger drivers are encased in their own chambers, “the kind of high-end construction that entails both forethought and expense,” says Home Theater magazine.
The entire system is carefully calibrated and tuned for optimal sound performance with a truly wide frequency range, with lows as low as 35 Hz and highs up to 22,000 Hz (+-2dB) for Model XL. Their incredible dynamic range is why Geneva Sound Systems are compared to multi-component systems costing many times more.
Along with style, simplicity and sophistication, Metropolis magazine, a voice for product designers and architects, singled out Geneva for sustainability – placing it first on a list of the most eco-conscious new products for its energy efficiency and all-in-one reduction of waste in manufacturing, packaging, and shipping.
