Unity Audio will be shipping the new Unity Audio Boulder MK II at the end of June.
The active 3 way active monitor will retain all the great attributes
of the original MK I, for example the same Baltic Birch sealed plywood
cabinet, albeit larger to accommodate the two new 8" SEAS woofers, the
original ELAC coaxial 5" midrange with 50kHz
folded ribbon tweeter, and the same custom E.A.R Class A/B amplifiers
results of the 4x 8" woofers over the previous 4x 6.5" woofers is an
increase of 4dB in SPL figures and even more low frequency extension
with the -3Db point in
the low 30Hz region and -3dB at 36kHz.
Boulder MkII has the same fast tight transients with the bass being
reproduced perfectly as before but now delivered with detailed sub
as the 8” woofers move a lot more air and the user can feel the bass
now as well as hear it! The
new SEAS 8” woofers also produce even more clarity and detail in the
lower mids, up to the crossover
point for the 5” mid driver. The folded ribbon tweeter is now measuring
-3dB at 36kHz, with a really flat and smooth all the way from the mids
with existing Boulder users and dealers has been amazing, everyone
loves the MK II and many have ordered upgrades for their MkI's which is
in the past we supported Rock MkI customers by offering MKII upgrades.
With the Boulder MKII we've hit that balance of having a really super
accurate detailed monitor for mixing but is also a fantastic vibey
monitor to work while writing and tracking a band”.
Boulder MkII UK: £4,998 ex VAT the pair. US: $8,350 retail per pair.
