Gamma MK2

The gamma series is a revolutionary concept we had been working on for some time now. It allows for infinite shelf adjustment at any level with moderate to high load capacities.
Those of you that are familiar with “T-slot” extruded aluminum recognize the versatility of this system. Much like a child’s erector set, these universal components allow you to design and build a rack having virtually any configuration you can imagine.Aluminium extruded section struts slide into T slotted side pillars and can be locked into any position/level along the length of the side pillars. These struts serve as shelf supports over which any kind of shelving that the user wishes can be placed. Thus making the shelves infinitely height adjustable

Framework is made from pure aircraft grate aluminum billet extrusions offering inert performance with superior structural strength and rigidity.Additionally the framework is designed to reject “sway” which is one of the most important aspects in an audiophile rack

(“sway” is the pendulum motion you get when you push the top shelf of an ill designed rack – ever experienced the movement of a rack where it sways toward the back when pushed and then comes back to equilibrium ? )
The shelves are 1 inch thick and can either be high density wood fibre with laminate  (walnut grain as shown in some pics) or can also be upgraded to pure solid maple wood which is hand buffed and finished off with a matt PU coat

The picture shows a gamma rack with an upgraded top shelf (to be ordered separately) especially for critical electronics like TT’s.This shelf is larger than the others and can be independently levelled.Furthermore it is isolated by its own set of spikes.Our proprietary QUAD ESL spikes are standard with the rack.

Pedestal stands for your power amps or monnoblocks can be made the same way to match your main rack

Please note : the standard rack ships with real solid 1inch thick hardwood ( maple wood) Duly polished and melamined with PU coat and is 34 inches tall Standard rack does not feature spikes for the top shelf

Our Multi-Element Granite Platforms:

Granite is well-known for its ability to maintain precision flatness and has sufficient mass to naturally resist motion, not to mention its stunning beauty. Natural stone however, will ring like a tuning fork unless certain measures are taken.

We combine the granite slab with a sheet of medium density fiberboard (MDF) which has excellent anti-resonant properties (that is why MDF is widely used in the manufacturing of speaker enclosures). The bonding is achieved through the use of our special anti-resonant conduction material. Our secret is the way energy is transmitted back and forth between the different materials. The intentional use of different materials aids in negating the ill effects of each material and focusing on its advantages

DIYers have tried their own version of this design by substituting other materials between the MDF and granite (or worse yet just plain granite)! And the results are always the same, a compromise in soundstage and a sense of hardness in the upper midrange. More here….

The Frame Assembly:

The simple, clean design of this rack frame is based on just two basic components: the cross-beam and the column. Much like a childs erector set, these universal components allow you to design and build a rack having virtually any configuration you can imagine. And better yet, if your needs change, just tear it apart and start over.

We offer these racks two ways: Complete rack solutions, or as mix-n-match component DIY sets. Just send us a sketch or a written description of you requirements and will provide you with all the materials needed to build your “custom” rack.

The Horizontal struts/Shelf Supports

These are Extruded aluminum cross-beams, machined ends with pre-installed connector assemblies. A universal T-slot runs along the top edge, making it easy to intall after-market coupling and wire-management devices.

The Connectors:

The entire rack may be assembled using just one simple allen wrench. Rotating the socket-head screw causes the T-bar to retract, thus locking the cross-beam to the column. In the 45sq series the allen key locks a sliding support cast connector to lock the horizontals with the verticals

The Capitols

Also referred to by us as “End Caps”, these serve dual purposes. Not only do they allow us to hold together the top most shelf in a rack they also add a touch of class. The capitols are precision machined components that provide a means of coupling (or decoupling) and allow platforms or additional rack layers to be placed above the columns. Optional brass caps can be ordered that can be leveled so as to support a plinth ( for a TT ) on the top shelf

The Footers:

The primary function of spiking is to focus the weight of the rack onto an infinitely small surface area, thus allowing it to function as a diode and transmit vibrations and energy only in one direction-rack to the floor. We have various kings of footers on offer however we generally use only the isosphere footer or the SureSpike both of which are CNC machined marine grade SS components. Spike feet to protect your floor are also available
