Grammy Award Winning Producer Jimmy Hogarth Chooses Unity Audio Boulder MKII’s.
London based producer and songwriter Jimmy Hogarth recently upgraded his main monitors to Unity Audio Boulder MKII’s. Hogarth has worked with an array of successful artists including Duffy, Paolo Nutini, James Blunt, Sia, Corinne Bailey Rae, Estelle, Amy Winehouse, James Morrison, KT Tunstall, Beverly Knight, Kristina Train, Suzanne Vega and Tina Turner. In addition, Jimmy also has his own label and publishing companies, Kid Gloves, both of which are partnered by Universal.
The Boulder MKII is a critically acclaimed 3-way nearfield / midfield active monitor that features dual 8 inch SEAS woofers and a unique dual concentric ELAC 5 inch mid range and 50Khz folded ribbon tweeter. The sealed cabinet uses Baltic Birch plywood and a huge 30mm Corian front baffle. Amplification is provided by four discrete bi-polar class A/B custom designed by amp guru Tim de Paravicini of Esoteric Audio Research.
After a week of demoing various large format monitors, some costing twice as much, the Boulders were chosen for their remarkably resolution and clarity. Hogarth comments, “I am very pleased with the Boulders MKII’s. They are non-fatiguing, deliver fantastic low-end extension with lots of detail and clarity from the dual concentric MF and HF driver and are very engaging.”
Unity Audio MD Kevin Walker comments, “ we are delighted someone with such a high caliber of success as Jimmy has chosen our monitors, especially after going up against some high ticket competitors.”
