Amplification

The Rock is equipped with 100 watt discrete bi-polar low feedback amplifier with custom wound transformers designed by the amp guru Tim de Paravicini of Esteric Audio Research. Dedicated LF and HF sections result in a very fast, clean and astoundingly accurate audio reproduction.

Drivers

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 provides a microscopic view of any program material whilst remaining comfortable for long listening periods.

Sealed Cabinet

Unlike many near-field monitors the cabinet is a sealed enclosure that doesnt rely on a resonate port to deliver its low end performance.The advantage of this design philosphy is more accurate base with better time domain performance and a gradual 12 dB per octave roll off as opposed to a 24dB roll off with ported design.

Applications

Rock are ideal in a 2.1 or 5.1 system configuration when partnered with an Avalanche Sub-woofer
