Grows with you
Consistent with Solidsteel's catalogue of high-end racks, the S3 range is expandable and customisable, meaning you can add extra shelves as you need. Turn your dual-shelf rack into a three-shelf, your three-shelf into a four, and so on as you require.
Typically racks that are modular in this way are gimmicky or cheaply made, but Solidsteel is dedicated to both quality and expandability in their products. For a high-quality hi-fi rack that grows with your system, look no further than Solidsteel's S3 range.
Add an extra shelf to your S3 rack with an additional shelf kit, available separately.
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 solid structure and acoustically considered design enable superb audio performance from your equipment.
Each of the aluminium poles is filled with a unique damping material to minimise unwanted resonance with the shelves. The same level of care that is applied in the design of a loudspeaker enclosure has been taken here, to ensure that this unit is not picking up and amplifying unwanted vibrations at key frequencies.
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.
These heavy-duty stainless steel floor spikes are designed to stabilize the rack on carpeted floors. However, for hard surfaces or low-pile carpet, you may want to check out some protective pads, to prevent the spikes marking the floor.
Most home theatre equipment needs ample ventilation to ensure they don't overheat. Enclosed cabinets can cause unexpected shutdown and could potentially reduce the lifespan of your AV appliances. The advantage of this unit is that it allows your equipment to breathe properly.
About the S3 Series
Drawing inspiration from their prestigious Hyperspike range and decades of production, Solidsteel have created the new S3 series. Officially launched in 2013, this series is soon to be the benchmark in Solidsteel's range thanks to its excellent build quality, functionality, and modest appearance.
Made of clean lines and a high level of polish, the result is an aesthetically pleasing piece of furniture that enhances your home hi-fi experience.
