Unity Audio’s new Boulder MKIII has been supplied to Australia as part of a studio upgrade by producer Benjamin Stanford, better known as Dub FX.
A pair of Unity Audio B.A.B.E’s (Boulder Active Bass Extender) were also supplied to Stanford.
The new Boulder MK-III three-way active monitor delivers an accurate detailed sound and extended bass response with a greater SPL than its Boulder MKII predecessor.
Stanford commented: “Over the last 15 years as a producer I’ve had the pleasure of working with and getting to know seven different pairs of studio monitors” he said. “This year, I finally found the system I will use till I’m old and grey. The Unity Boulders with the B.A.B.E’s. are absolutely next level!”
Stanford is an Australian producer and worldwide street performer, situated in Australia. He is known for creating unique live music using only his own performance aided by live looping and effects pedals combined with his voice. He creates intricate hip hop, reggae, and drum and bass rhythms, has several albums and is a popular international live performer.
Stanford chose the new Boulder MKIII because he was looking for something that would enable him to work faster and more accurately. “Unlike with my previous monitors, I’ve found that these speakers have made my job as a producer much easier in terms of speed and performance.”
Resembling the surface of a large crystal, the MKIII model’s aluminium-foil stamping stiffens the aluminium dome, diminishing resonances and minimising colouration, while improving power handling and dynamics. The voice coil design of the bass drivers results in an expanded range of the respective drivers by nearly an octave down to 36Hz at -3dB.
The MK-III model now features 2x 300 watt Class D amplifiers and their own dedicated power supply to drive the 2x 8.5” woofers, while the mid/HF coaxial X-JET drive unit is powered by 2x 75 watt custom Class A/B amplifiers with a dedicated power supply.
