Unity Audio has installed six Rock MKII monitors and Avalanche sub-woofers at London College of Music as part of its 5.1 system upgrade.

The Rock model was chosen as the main speaker for the institution’s studios due to its low-level performance, making it possible for discussion to take place without “having to ride the speaker level”.

Dr Andrew Bourbon, senior lecturer at LCM, added: “The Rock MKII never overexcites the room acoustics and is in no way bloated in the bottom end, but still reflects details that bely the box size, particularly when listening at low levels.

“The performance of The Rock MKII at low level is a real positive, it is great to be able to work at such quiet levels, avoiding ear fatigue and also providing an environment where discussion can take place without having to ride the speaker level- as a teaching tool in the studio monitoring at low level is of great benefit, as is the excellent translation without destroying your hearing.”

The Rock monitor model is equipped with a 100 watt discrete bi-polar low feedback amplifier with custom wound transformers.

“I need to trust my speaker, and I have been able to trust The Rock MKII. Initial feedback from students over the past month has been similarly positive, with the quality of work coming out from our Basement 3 studio impressive.”
