James Reynolds takes Unity Audio Boulder
UK mixer/producer has purchased Unity Audios new 3 way active monitor The Boulder from dealer Kazbar Systems.
Following on from the success of the two way active Rock monitor, the Boulder is a true 3 way design with two dedicated bass drivers and a unique dual concentric 5” flat aluminium mid range with a 50kHz folded ribbon tweeter inside the mid to eliminate any phasing issues.
The sealed Baltic Birch cabinet follows on from The Rock as does the custom E.A.R discrete amplifiers except there are four of them, one for each drive unit.
“For me, being a mixer/producer I need a very accurate monitor and in my quest for perfection I found The Boulders are the best I auditioned by far.
You got to be brave at first and trust them because the mids and tops are not hyped but the benefit of this is that it doesn't cover up the low mids and lows and therefore give me a really flat frequency response which is so important for the commercial hip hop tracks I tend to mix. These speaker have great stereo imaging and I can work on them for long periods of time without my ears getting tired. Well done unity Audio!"
