What you place your hifi equipment on will affect its performance. Placing your hifi on a Quadraspire Q4 Evo original equipment rack will help reduce resonance, lower the noise floor and open the soundstage to make your hifi sound even better.
Avoid Parallel Lines
Parallel lines on rectangular shelves encourage resonance which can distort sound. Where possible, Quadraspire avoids parallel lines in the same way as most musical instrument designs.
The shelves on Quadraspire racks are machined to reduce any resonance, lowering the noise floor and opening the sound stage whilst also improving sound quality and performance.
The edges on all shelves are chamfered to help dissipate energy and help improve sound.
Steel tube can resonate and distort sound. Aluminium has much less resonance so we use it instead for all of our columns and feet.
Some materials like glass resonate and distort the sound of your system. As a result of extensive testing of different materials, Quadraspire uses solid bamboo ply which suppresses vibrations and is also carbon neutral and sustainable.
It is no coincidence that a lot of musical instruments use brass and bronze. Quadraspire’s research determined that bronze and brass are good materials for reducing resonance, so they developed a bronze upgrade for all of their racks.
The Q4 Evo can be specified with a choice of stainless steel floor protectors to protect hard floors and provide additional isolation from room-borne vibrations. The basic QC floor protectors provide a simple and cost effective option.
The advanced QX7 floor protectors are intricately machined and shaped to provide improved isolation performance and sound quality.
