Designed expressly to prove that furniture makes a different, Q4 makes improvement to the sound of any HiFi system that is easily appreciated. The curved and chamfered edges of the shelves reduce standing waves and resonances. The undersides are carved with an intricate pattern that further reduces mass and breaks up any remaining vibration. Shelves are supported by straight-sided 19mm solid aluminum columns. In fact all, ferrous metals are eliminated which has a very positive impact on sound. Leveling spikes are included, isolating the rack from the floor.
Q4EVO is a major upgrade of our original Q4 rack that was originally launched in 1995. The Q4EVO is a practical modular solution combining shelves with aluminium columns and feet to enhance your sound system both sonically and visually.
The Q4EVO is the same as the original Q4 rack except for some intricate machining on the underside of the shelf which will give improved performance – “the cheapest rack here gives our kit a cohesive sound with a well-balanced treble, taut and expressive bass and a supple and emotive midrange” What hifi November 2009.
To gain maximum performance from your hifi or av system, the furniture you place it on is as equally important as all the other components. Each component & cable is susceptible to electrical & mechanical noise, degrading overall system performance. In theory total isolation is desirable, but in reality impossible. Quadraspire designs achieve optimum isolation through a combination of distinctive curves and chamfered edges minimising resonance and standing sound waves. Aluminium columns eliminate residual magnetism and the adjustable spiked feet allow efficient floor de-coupling. Real wood-veneered shelves ensure good self-damping properties.
