Metalsmith Eino Paulus’ remarkable journey

In our first-ever episode of Genelec Kinos, we’re honoured to present Metalsmith Eino Paulus, a true craftsman whose influence at Genelec will be felt for generations to come.

A skilful and forward-thinking worker, Paulus made himself an integral part of our story, with a crucial role in bringing some of our early technical concepts to life. In the late 80s, as we faced the challenge of manufacturing our own midrange drivers for the large 1035A, requiring high power and low distortion, Paulus rose to the occasion. In the process, he set about teaching himself to cast aluminium and built his own furnace to create the driver frames.

Later, in 1991, we received a challenging request from a faithful customer in Italy, RAI. In meeting their demands, we took just two months to develop our then ground-breaking and now legendary 1031A. Paulus was there every step of the way, helping to expertly construct its midrange driver.

Paulus, a passionate instrumentalist, often spends his time playing violin and mandolin with his musician friends, so in this episode, we also explore how his musicality strengthens his connection with sound.
