New Toy Alert: Unity Audio Rock and Boulder Monitors

On November 20, 2016

We FINALLY got our amazing monitor upgrade. These units are a serious bits of kit. The Boulders have been on loan to us for a while, but the mkII versions are now a permanent feature in our Neve Genesys room. The eight–inch SEAS drivers are a fantastic upgrade and the same ribbon tweeters are still doing an epic job. The Rocks have made their way into our Audient and SSL rooms and are fitting in perfectly. Unity have been visiting us for a while and it has been great seeing these products grow and grow.

SAE Oxford, one of the world’s leading creative media institutions with 54 campuses in 28 countries has recently purchased a pair of Unity Audio Boulder MKII 3 way active monitors and two pairs of Rock MKII 2 way monitors for two of their main recording studio control rooms.

Unity Audio has given monitoring presentations to SAE students over the past two years which has always been well attended and welcomed by students and lecturers alike, with many of them being total Unity converts resulting in personal purchases. Now SAE Oxford has added their own Unity Audio monitoring systems for their pro-audio courses.

SAE Oxford Programme Coordinator Marc Rose (pictured on right ) said  “I am very excited to install Rocks in two of our studios and Boulders in Studio 1. This is a wonderful opportunity for staff and students alike to perfect their mixes on high-end monitors.”

The Rock is a critically acclaimed 2-way near-field active monitor that features a seven inch woofer and a 50Khz folded ribbon tweeter designed by ELAC. The sealed cabinet uses Baltic Birch plywood and a huge 12mm Corian front baffle. The Rock is equipped with a 100 watt discrete bi-polar low feedback amplifier with custom wound transformers.

The Boulder MKII is a 3 way active mid-field monitor with 2x 8” woofers and a bespoke coaxial 5” mid-range with a 50 kHz folded ribbon tweeter centrally mounted into the 5” mid-range to eliminate any phase issues between the mid and high frequency drivers. The sealed cabinet design ensures a tight, dynamic and accurate low frequency reproduction. A total of 4 custom designed dedicated Class A/B amplifiers are used along with the active crossover electronics.
