Unity Audio Rocks Out with Johnny McDaid

LONDON, NOVEMBER 29, 2016 – When Johnny McDaid, member of the popular alternative rock band Snow Patrol, was looking to upgrade his personal studio, Fieldwork Music, he decided to purchase Unity Audio’sSuper Rock near-field monitors. McDaid was blown away by his initial demo and ultimately installed a pair of Super Rocks into his space due to their exceptional audio qualities.

“The first time I heard the Super Rocks I was shocked at their depth and clarity,” says McDaid. “The sound was unbelievable, especially given their size. The audio is crisp and clear, no matter what level I have my volume set at. In my studio, I typically work for hours on end. I never get tired of using my Super Rocks. They are truly in a league of their own and I couldn’t recommend any other speaker since purchasing this pair. Whether I am mixing or tracking, the Super Rocks cover it all.”

Unity Audio’s Super Rocks are a larger format active 2-way model that features the well-known Unity Audio sealed cabinet design. These monitors deliver a fast transient response and accurate low frequency reproduction. The Super Rock has an 8-inch woofer compared to the 6-inch woofer from Unity Audio’s Rock MKII. It also features a larger folded ribbon tweeter from Mundorf. As with all products in the Unity Audio range, the Super Rock also contains the Class A/B Tim de Paravicini designed amplifiers.

“We are thrilled that Johnny McDaid has chosen to use our Super Rocks,” says Kevin Walker, managing director of Unity Audio. “Unity is always excited when accomplished artists and producers elect to purchase our products. Our company prides itself on delivering unique, high-quality products and we work hard to meet the needs of our customers.”
