Conclusion: Thinking of the Geneva Sound System Model L as a powerful contemporary-styled mini system wouldn't be far off the mark. Its sound quality and ease of use will make it an attractive addition to the living rooms of the tragically hip (and wealthy).
Geneva Lab GenevaSound mod. L & XL - active speaker with CD player, FM tuner and iPod docking station
16 January 2009
Excerpt: Foreword Exactly two years ago I reviewed an active sats + subwoofer system, with Class D internal amplification, namely the Aux Out by Kuller/Outline. During these last years TNT-Audio has reviewed a couple of "all-in-one" audiophile -oriented systems like the Audio Analogue Enigma and the Arcam Solo . These systems include a CD player, a tuner section and an amplifier. Only speakers are missing, in order to get a really complete stereo system.
Summary: Dropping a four-figure sum on an iPod dock may not be your bank manager’s idea of sensible spending, but then he probably hasn’t heard the Model L. At first glance, Geneva’s rather large system looks like an oppressively size centre speaker. But fortunately for all our sensibilities, it’s rather more than that, combining an iPod dock, CD player and FM radio.
Summary: This is the big brother to the recently reviewed Geneva M (18/07/08), there is an even larger unit (to big for my place) the XL full details on their site. So what does this large unit have to offer?
