Boulder is located, as you'd expect, in Boulder, Colorado. Founded in 1984 by Jeff Nelson, Boulder produces robust, ultra-high-end two-channel products such as amplifiers, preamplifiers, and digital processors. Boulder was originally built around the concept of supplying the most accurate equipment possible to recording studios, including amplifiers and microphone preamps, but the company transitioned to the manufacture of home audio equipment in 1995. It is now the last "high-end" electronics manufacturer to design, produce, and assemble all aspects of its equipment under its own roof.
Notable Boulder products include: the Boulder 2008 Phono Preamplifier, the first electronic component to earn the A+ rating from Stereophile magazine; the 1021 Network Disc Player, which was the first UPnP/DLNA compliant high-end digital renderer; the diminutive Boulder 850 mono block that is rated at 200 watts into eight ohms; and the Boulder 1060 stereo amp, rated at 300 watts with a frequency response of 0.015 Hz to 150 kHz and a signal-to-noise ratio of 127 dB. Not enough? The $215,000 Boulder 3050 mono blocks have 1,500 watts, with peak power of 9,000 watts into one ohm.
