The SoundFoundations “Alpha ” series of Hifi Av racks feature a modular design which allow the user to customize the rack as he wishes. One may purchase a fully built up design featuring our proprietary unbreakable and incredibly neutral 12mm thick BLACK Plexi Acrylic shelving or alternatively a finger jointed 17mm thick maple wood option as soon in picture no. 3 and 4.
The user can also opt for a DIY option to build a rack by procuring his own shelving material may it be glass or wood.
All alpha iterations have a high-quality construction with heavy-gauge tubular steel supports to provide incredible strength and rigidity to match AV equipment of most sizes
An open architecture maximizes airflow in this Rack
The Alpha series has 2 major iterations
- The Alpha EVO ( Pic no 1 – 6 )
- The Alpha MK2 reference ( Stacking Ref Pic no 7 , 8 )
Alpha “MK2” reference series
This is a reference iteration of the Alpha rack appreciated by the serious enthusiast. Fully modular and “stackable” as you choose, Every 2 shelves/ levels has individual spike sets for enhanced isolation between modules . Whats more; its fully custom. The “stacking” option allows the user great flexibility to use this rack in multiple combinations depending on his gear at any point of time
The rack features an Aerograde Solid Aluminum support network, 12mm plexi for shelving, and CNC machined contoured spikes and receptors.
(refer Pic 7 and 8 )
Until now, a four shelf hi-fi rack with individually isolated shelves would have cost a substantial amount of money. But not anymore! Each shelf, including the base shelf has its own set of dynamically balanced spikes and counter spikes for ideal mechanical isolation. Isolating each shelf has two main positive effects. Firstly, vibrations from, for example, an amplifier, won’t be transmitted to more sensitive hi-fi components. Equally, vibrations from other sources within the room such as footfall, speakers, fish tank pumps and so on, will be suppressed, too.
With vibrations successfully suppressed, you’ll benefit from superior sound. Subtle detail comes to the fore and the bass sounds tighter and more focused. If you have a non-sprung turntable you should also find it more immune to mist racking caused by heavy footfall in the room.
Finished in smart black with black shelves, the alpha MK 2 is the ideal match for most hi-fi separates. With four shelves, of differing heights, it’s also flexible enough to accept many system variations.
The standard shelf is a rectangle with beveled edges of size 23inch wide and 18 inch deep.
The rack can be ordered with multiple modules (ranging from 2 nos to 4nos) and clients may choose module heights ( 6 , 8 and 10 inch ) as per their requirements.
