Unity Audio Launch Active Hi-Fi Speakers At The High End Society Show, Munich
Unity Audio is delighted to announce the international launch of its new Hi-Fi range of active loudspeakers at the High End Society Show, Munich 5-8th May 2016.
The DNA of the range is taken from Unity’s highly successful professional recording and mastering series of speakers that are fast becoming standard equipment in many of the worlds leading recording and mastering facilities. 60% of all the UK top ten albums from 2014 and 2015 were mixed, tracked or mastered using Unity Audio speakers including the top three selling albums by Adele, Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith.
From the inception of the range the Unity team were very clear they did not want to launch a range generic consumer studio monitors, rather they wanted to take the best bits from the professional range and fuse them with deep audiophile knowledge and components to create a range of re-voiced loudspeakers that make great musical performers suitable for a home environment.
The range features no less than three stand-mount active loudspeakers, an active sub-woofer and dedicated active stereo bass extension cabinets for the range topping Boulder 3 way design. All Unity loudspeakers are sealed cabinet designs for more accurate time domain performance and linear low frequency output at all listening levels.
At the heart of the speakers are class A/B amplifiers designed exclusively by Tim de Paravacini of EAR (Esoteric Audio Research). Speaker cabinets are manufactured in the UK and use high performance Baltic Birch plywood rather than more commonly used and sonically inferior MDF. Drive units have been carefully selected from various well-established reputable European partners that have outstanding design, performance, build and quality control standards. The front baffles are made from Corian, a zero resonance material that adds nothing to the sonic signature.
Internally the loudspeakers benefit from having carefully selected AudioQuest oxygen free copper high performance cables for all critical audio paths. Mundorf audiophile grade components have been specified for use in the input boards, active crossovers and amplifiers. Thousands of hours of listening tests using some of the worlds best recording engineers, record producers and estimated golden ears from the Hi-Fi world went into carefully refining the overall sonic signature. The end result is a selection of loudspeakers that are accurate, musical, harmonious, engaging, beautifully assembled and above all else fun to listen.
The complete range will be on demonstration in Hall 3 booth H04.
