Three-Shelf Isolating Equipment Rack
Upgrade AV gear performance by isolating your components from vibration that can get into the signal chain. With Solid Tech's three-shelf Regular 3 Rack of Silence, you can enjoy purer, more lifelike audio and added video realism.
The Solid Tech Rack of Silence was honored by being included in The Absolute Sound 2012 High-End Audio Buyer's Guide. According to the magazine, "The aptly named Rack of Silence helps damp equipment vibrations, thus fostering audibly quieter backgrounds and heightened resolution of detail… The system works exactly as advertised, making even the finest components sound better."
The Solid Tech Rack of Silence doesn't look like any component rack you've ever seen before. That's because there's never been a rack like this, whose extreme design offers the highest levels of isolation. Many racks claim to offer sonic benefits, but the Rack of Silence really delivers. Laboratory measurements prove that Solid Tech significantly reduces vibration that reaches support components.
"The Rack of Silence is a serious tool for the audiophile on the edge," observes Marshall Nack in issue 13 of Positive Feedback. "It brought improvements beyond what my other racks offered, improvements that I wouldn't want to be without."
"There's no question that the Rack of Silence ranks among the best audio racks I've ever heard," raves audiophile guru Wes Phillips in his May 2004 review for SoundStage! "There was greater contrast between foreground and field. Again, there was greater sense of detail. And that swing thing? More of that, too. What I wasn't prepared for was an increase in low-end solidity."
Two Types of Shelves
The three-shelf Regular 3 Rack of Silence consists of four sand-fillable extruded aluminum pillars and two types of X-shaped beechwood crossbeam shelves: Super Shelves and Basic Shelves.
Super Shelves support up to 170 lbs. Basic Shelves support up to 85 lbs. The low resonance design of these X-shaped shelves minimize surface area and reducing contact between the rack and your components. The effect is superior isolation and vibration control.
Stainless Steel Ball 'Feet'
To place your components on the Rack of Silence, simply position four of the included stainless steel balls on one of the X-shaped shelves. Then set your CD player, power amp, receiver, or other component on top of the balls, and enjoy the sonic benefits immediately. For even better performance, you can use Solid Tech's Feet of Silence or IsoClear feet.
