The most accessible hi-fi rack from the Hyperspike series just got better. The HY-2L is a wide two-shelf modular audio rack that's perfect for high-performance systems. The sturdy four-pillar design and stainless steel hardware make this rack a fine addition to your high-end audio system.

The best of both worlds
This series includes the primary elements and materials of the reference level Hyperspike range, but at a fraction of the cost. Unique to this range are the 30mm thick MDF shelves that are coated with a special anti-resonance finish.
This range features pillars that are made of solid, polished steel, and the same shelving system seen in the other Hyperspike ranges, in which each shelf is isolated from each other.
Designed with Intention. Crafted with care.
With hi-fi appliances, especially high-end equipment, manufacturers attempt to minimize internal vibration. However, this effort cannot completely protect against vibrations introduced by speakers and other external factors. This is where a trustworthy rack is essential to playing back your media free from disruptions to performance or causing damage to the equipment.
The four-pillar design, as seen in the HF series racks, is geometrically positioned to give the unit maximum support and a sturdy contact with the surrounding environment. This means that on level floors, this stand offers incredible support. Another benefit that the four-pillar design has over a three-pillar is that there is no pole in the centre of the stand to get in the way of your equipment's cables.
The stainless steel floor-spikes included are adjustable, to finely regulate the frame on uneven surfaces. They also are critical in minimizing energy transferred from the floor up through the poles of the rack, and ultimately into your equipment. Floor pads are included for protecting hard surfaces from becoming scratched by the spikes.
High-end speakers and amplifiers are designed to look as good as they perform. The same is true for home theatre furniture. The hardware of this unit is made of high-quality stainless steel, polished by a state of the art process, resulting in the eye-catching smooth and polished finish.
Just like the HY range, the HY-L racks are capable of being stacked. As well as further reducing external energy transfer, this enables you to set up the system as you desire. Either as a single 2-shelf rack or two single-shelf platforms for your equipment. This modular design comes at no sacrifice to the core functionality or robustness of the unit.
Most home theatre devices need ample ventilation to ensure they don't overheat. Enclosed cabinets can cause unexpected shutdown and could potentially reduce the lifespan of your AV appliances. An advantage of a hi-fi unit like this is that it allows your equipment to breathe properly.
All the benefits of this rack come together to enable your high-performance gear to perform as well as possible and allow your music to come alive with greater detail.
About the Hyperspike HY-L Series
The Hyperspike Series is Solidsteel's top range of products. Officially launched in 2004, it is designed to satisfy the most demanding audio enthusiast needs. Aesthetics merge with functional choices to create products that are as beautiful as they are purposeful.
The Hyperspike Series aims to achieve new goals in performance while offering advantages to audio system designs. The HY range combines this distinction with convenience and accessibility. This is made possible by a well thought out manufacturing process that keeps cost down but doesn't affect the overall performance of the unit.
The HY series is an evolution of the HJ (Hyperspike Junior) range, which gives the Hyperspike range a four-pillared matte black option. Introduced in 2018, Solidsteel defines the HY range as a "functional beauty". This range is faithful to the rest of Solidsteel's stylistic catalogue, but is incredibly focused in its design. The HY series racks offer fantastic value for money.
What sets the HY-L series apart from the HY range is the wide design. The HY-L series racks can hold wider equipment (such as high-end turntables) and are stronger.
