Racks

I don't own an audio rack. I had a custom cabinet built based on my own design. I wanted something streamlined and aesthetically pleasing for my sitting room. I did however treat the shelf undersides with Soundcoat dampening material and placed my Naim gear on black SSC Solidbase. They blend in seamlessly with the gear and do a fantastic job at a very reasonable cost. For smaller items (PSU, DAC, streamer) I use SSC Netpoints mounted on Ikea cutting boards. Not as aesthetically pleasing but just as effective and I keep them out of sight in a closed compartment.

Recently upgraded from an original Quadraspire QAVM with the Bronze upgrade to a SVT2 in Bamboo also with the Bronze upgrade  the difference in quite staggering but also looks the part.

Hi Pcd

just read through this post and see you have you system set up on a SVT2. I have been looking at this option online as it looks great and fits the space required. A couple of questions.

-does this rack work well with stacking brain and brawn apart?

-if so how does the rack prevent the vibrations traveling across the shelf to the other unit sitting beside it.

-how is it’s SQ  performance going now you have had it for a while.

thanks

Hi Boom, picture of the SVT2 rack in Bamboo 140mm legs with the additional shelf and SVT Bronze upgrade, evidently the additional shelf below he SVT Bronze upgrade increases the rigidity (Some picture do not show this shelf) I must say it is a big improvement sound wise on the QVAM rack it replaces.

Looks good plus it fits along the return of the bay window also the black boxes run much cooler very pleased indeed.

Awesome, thanks for the reply and photo, A very nice system you have there and it looks great on the SVT2. I just need to get the wife to like it now as it will sit in our living room under the wall hung tv.

happy listening

cheers Boom

The SVT2 does look very nice indeed. A question was asked about how it prevents vibration travelling across between two boxes placed side by side, and I suppose the answer is that it doesn’t. It’s something I’d not thought of before - say whether the 300PS transformer vibration might impact on the head unit. Given that the boxes have isolating feet, I guess it’s not an issue. Two standard SVTs may be a little better but would be larger and presumably more expensive. Anyway, it’s good to see the SVT get a bit more exposure here - they are seriously good racks at a price that isn’t too outrageous, and are beautifully made.
