The Rock Mk II Hi-fi
Fidelity' Hi-fi Speakers
The stunning Rock Hi-Fi is an incredibly accurate, critically acclaimed active 2 way stand-mount loudspeaker. A small and stylish speaker with an incredible pedigree. the Rock is capable of delivering a truly musical audiophile performance that belies its compact size.
The Rock features carefully selected discrete audiophile components that enhance it's performance into a true exotic. We've fitted Mundorf components and partnered with Audioquest to develop the internal wiring. Drive units are by ELAC and the amplifiers are designed exclusively by Tim de Paravicini.
The Rock is equipped with a 100 watt discrete bi-polar low feedback amplifer 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.
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 ber 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 stand-mount speakers the Rock cabinet is a sealed enclosure that doesn't rely on a resonate port to deliver it's 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 cabinet is made from 12mm, 9-ply Baltic Birch plywood. A front to rear bracing system is also incorporated to eliminate cabinet flexing. To add density, mass and rigidity the front baffle is manufactured from 12mm Corian and bonded to the 12mm ply baffle.
