Halstead, Essex, UK (July 23, 2010)–Writer/producer and remixer Andy Gray recently equipped his private studio with a pair of Unity Audio’s Rock studio monitors.
Gray’s credits include work with Tori Amos, Liz Fraser, Gary Numan, Korn, U2 and Enter Shikari. He is currently working on the new Hard Fi album where he evaluated The Rocks during the final mixing. He has also scored for movies, including Swordfish and Timecop II, and wrote the Big Brother theme for the UK’s Channel 4.
Gray was looking for nearfields to complement his existing main monitor/sub set-up and to replace his current pair. “The Rocks are amazing, they sound a lot bigger than the are and have incredible low end detail and punch even at very low levels,” says Gray.
“I was almost speechless when I A/B’d them with my main monitors, all the detail and size was right there! The Rocks actually have better detail at any sound level than all of my other monitors, and are very open and wide and they have a nice wide sweet spot. They’re also very un-taxing to listen to all day and I’m able to mix very quickly and accurately.”
The Rock is Unity Audio’s first professional studio monitor. Designed and manufactured in the UK, it features a Baltic Birch plywood cabinet with a Corian front baffle for maximum strength and stiffness with low resonant frequency. The Rock boasts a 50 kHz response folded ribbon tweeter in conjunction with a 7-inch woofer. The drivers are sourced from a long-established European company that was one of the first to manufacture folded ribbon tweeters. The amplifier, designed for Unity Audio by leading amplifier designer Tim de Paravicini’s company, Esoteric Audio Research, is a true discrete Class A/B generating a 100 watts RMS.
