Full-range, reference-level output at arm’s length.

Kali Audio’s IN-UNF is an ultranearfield desktop studio monitor system. It’s designed to be used in small spaces where getting too loud is a concern—either by virtue of room acoustics or neighbors. The IN-UNF presents full-range audio at reference levels at 2.75 feet, or about arm’s length.

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 into their existing desk setup; 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.

A Bass Unit and Two Satellites

The IN-UNF consists of three main pieces: a bass unit and two satellites. The bass unit houses two high-excursion 4.5" 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 in a setup of this size. 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 3.5 mm 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 included.

Optimized for Your Desk

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.
