Solidsteel Philosophy: Solidsteel's philosophy is that there
should be no compromise in the build quality or benefits to sonic performance,
and that the products should reflect the Italian "style" of design with the use
of excellent materials, clean lines, well-considered utilization of space, and
attention to detail.
S5 Series: Drawing from their prestigious Hyperspike technology,
Solidsteel has created the new S5 Series. The solid and essential structure
provides excellent audio performance, while its clean lines make it very
pleasing aesthetically. For maximum performance, there's a special
anti-vibration system which consists of structural shelf that sustains another
shelf which rest on four adjustable Solidsteel cones.
Anti-Vibration Dual Shelf System: The Solidsteel S5-4 audio rack
employs a special anti-vibration system, which consists of four structural 1.18"
MDF shelves that each sustain another 1.18" MDF shelf which rest upon one
another with four adjustable isolation cones to decouple them from one another.
Isolation through cones minimizes resonance and provides superb acoustic
neutrality. In addition, there is a hole cut out in the center of each
structural shelf to further minimize vibration , providing a more acoustical
environment for your audio components.
4 Shelf Audio Rack: The Solidsteel S5-4 audio rack features
4 dual anti-vibration shelves. The overall height of the rack, and the distance
between each shelf, has been carefully calculated to achieve an optimum balance
of acoustics and aesthetics.
- Top Shelf: The top shelf measures 23" (w) x 39.75" (h)
x 16.9375" (d), and supports up to 130 lbs.
- 2 Middle Shelves: The two middle shelf measures 19.75"
(w) x 8" (h) x 16.9375" (d) and supports up to 130 lbs each.
- Bottom Shelf: The bottom shelf measures 19.75" (w) x
12" (h) x 16.9375" (d), and supports up to 130 lbs.
4-Pillar Aluminum Structure: The Solidsteel S5-4 audio rack
utilizes a 4-pillar aluminum structure finished with black paint. The four
pillar design is geometrically positioned to give maximum support and minimum
physical contact with the surrounding environment. Each pillar is filled with a
special damping material until it is in "tune" with the audio rack's MDF shelves
for acoustic balance.
MDF Construction: This 4-shelf audio rack features an
aluminum 4-pillar structure with shelves made of 1.18" MDF (medium density
fiberboard). The benefits of MDF include a much higher damping factor and
superior rigidity over time. The aluminum 4-pillar structure & MDF shelves
are both finished with a black polymer laminate.
Decoupling Spikes: In addition to the S5-4's Anti-Vibration
Dual Shelf System, the audio rack is fitted with four decoupling spike feet &
protective discs. All spurious mechanical energies are discharged into the
ground through the decoupling spike feet & protective discs at the point where
the rack legs contact the floor.
