Home Theater Review




Boulder is located, as you'd expect, in Colorado. Founded in 1984 by Bruce Van Allen, Boulder produces robust, ultra high-end two-channel audio products such as amplifiers, preamplifiers, and D/A Converters.

Their products today compete in the elite, upper-echelon of audiophile products. While more limited in distribution, they compete with the likes of reference level Mark Levinson (think: No. 53s), Krell Evolution and Halcro's top of the line products.


Notable Boulder products include the Boulder 850 monoblock that is rated at 200 watts into 8 ohms. The Boulder 1060 stereo amp is rated at 300 watts and has a claimed frequency response of 0.015 Hz to 150 kHz and a signal to noise ratio of 127 dB. Those not enough? The Boulder 2050 monoblock has 1,000 watts, with peak power into 2 ohms of 4,000 watts.

Compare Boulder to companies like Conrad Johnson, Krell, McIntosh, Audio Research, Ayre, Cary, and Parasound.
