    Hi,

    I want to prepare my mixing room for 5.1 surround mixing. I already have 3x Genelec 8020 and a 7050B sub. I´m between the 8020 or the 6020 for the rear channels. The 6020 are a hair cheaper and have exactly the same specs as the 8020. Wich ones would choose?

    Thanks in advance.

    I'd have matching 8020 all around for closest consistency, myself.
    What a great problem you have here!

    Ok, couldn't come to a deal with the 8020.

    Out of the genelec forum, the 8020 and the 6020 are voiced exactly the same, and have exactly the same specs. The only difference is that the 6020 has an RCA input besides the XLR.

    Any experience with these?

    Thanks

    If they are that close in price, get the 8020 and take the guess work out of it. That's what I would do.

    I have the 6020 on its way to me right now. I couldn't get a good deal with the 8020 :( but anyway the 6020 should sound the same and I it them for cheap here in Spain.

    Anyone that can share some thoughts about the 6020?

    I just recieved the answer from Genelec:

    "thanks for contacting Genelec. 6020A has both RCA and XLR input connectors, and also it has an Autostart feature, otherwise they are pretty much the same.
