The Rock Mk II Hi-fi
Fidelity' Hi-fi Speakers
Based on the critically acclaimed Rock MKII 2-way active professional monitor considered by many to be the benchmark all others are judged by. The Rock Hi-Fi features a stunning black piano black high gloss finish to the cabinet and cyrogenically treated internal cables and is designed to bring reference levels of resolution to the home in an unobtrusive elegant form factor. True to the its professional pedigree it delivers an incredibly accurate sonic performance that will bring you much closer to the original performance. The Rock is trusted by recording, mixing and mastering engineers the world over so if you want to hear your music as the artist intended, The Rock really is the only choice.
The rock is equipped with a 100 watt discrete bi-polar low feedback amplifier with custom wound transformers designed by the amp guru Tim de Paravicini of Esoteric audio research. Dedicated LF and HF sections result in a very fast, clean and astoundingly accurate audio reproduction. All internal wiring uses customer manufactured cryogenically treated OFC cable to ensure maximum signal integrity.
The rock uses a 50KHz folded ribbon tweeter designed by ELAC. The 180mm woofer features a 0.2mm aluminum foil that is chemically bonded to a rigid pulp fiber cone. This seamless combination
of drivers delivers a frequency response of 37Hz-38kHz +/- 3db, and incredible resolution and detail, and provides a microscopic view of any program material whilst remaining comfortable for long listening periods.
Unlike many hi-fi speakers the cabinet is a sealed enclosure that doesnít rely on a resonate port to deliver itís low-end performance. The advantage of this design philosophy is more accurate bass with better time domain performance and a gradual 12dB per octave roll off as opposed to a 24dB roll off with ported designs.
The stunning black piano high gloss cabinet is made from 12mm, 9-ply Baltic Birch plywood. a front to rear bracing system is also incorporated to stop cabinet flexing. To add density, mass and rigidity the front baffle is manufactured from 12mm Corian and bonded to the 12mm ply baffle.
The Rocks are ideal in a 2.1 or 5.1 system configuration when partnered with an Avalanche Sub-woofer.
