The IN-UNF presents an ultra nearfield solution for producers and enthusiasts working and listening in desktop environments.
UNF stands for “Ultra-Nearfield.” The IN-UNF is designed to be used in small spaces where the ability to get loud is limited, either by room acoustics or the tolerance of neighbors. The IN-UNF presents full-range audio at reference levels with plenty of headroom at .8 M, about arm’s length from the system.
The entire system sits on your desk, and provides the same full-range, low distortion listening experience as a pair of IN-8s at standard listening distance. Flexible setup options allow users to easily integrate the IN-UNF in their existing deskscape; the bass unit can be placed vertically to sit behind a laptop or display, or horizontally to be used as a monitor riser for a display.
The IN-UNF consists of three main pieces: a bass unit and two satellites. The bass unit houses two high-excursion 4.5-Inch woofers as well as the amplifier and other electronics for the system. The two woofers are horizontally opposed, so no net vibration is transferred to the desk or to anything sitting on the bass unit.
The two satellites use the same coaxial midrange and tweeter as Kali’s acclaimed IN-5 and IN-8 studio monitors. The architecture of this element has been praised for its excellent stereo imaging capabilities. At the close range of the IN-UNF, the intimacy and detail of the stereo image is unrivaled. You’ll hear a more engrossing, lifelike picture of your mix than you’ve ever heard before.
The bass unit also features a variety of inputs to meet all your audio needs. Via the USB-C connector, which supports 24-bit resolution and 48k sample rate, you can connect computers, phones, and tablets without the need for an outboard interface or DAC. Optical and 3.5mm inputs provide support for both digital and analog connection to consumer devices like game consoles and receivers. For connection to standard pro audio devices, stereo TRS inputs are provided.
The IN-UNF is uniquely tuned for its role as a desktop speaker. The desk is accounted for as an acoustic element of the system, solving some of the problems that are typically presented with putting speakers on a desk. DIP switches are provided to account for the position of the system in a room, and for you to dial in bass, mids, and treble to your preferences.
The IN-UNF is part of Kali’s 2nd Wave product family, utilizing low noise-floor technology, upgraded drivers, and an advanced limiter circuit to maximize output and fidelity while keeping noise to a minimum.
