In the same way as every musical performance needs a stage so a HiFi needs a stage to bring the music to life in your home. Combining the technology of the SVT rack and the bronze upgrade we effectively created a rack within a rack making the entire system more musical and enjoyable.
The X reference is a rack within a rack with each X shaped shelf supporting an SVT shelf with solid bronze feet. Finally small Bronze spike locators hold the SVT shelf and Bronze feet in place on the X shelf.
The X shelf is made from Laminated Bamboo coated in Nextel for damping without adding mass. Each X shelf is supporting by 44mm concave Aluminium columns. The X reference uses a larger diameter column and thread to lock the X shelves together for increased rigidity. The curved shape of the column further improves performance by avoiding parallel lines and reducing standing waves and mass.
At the heart of the X reference rack are the solid Bronze feet and spike locators. These two components have been specifically tuned to deliver the most natural performance on the X reference. This results in a rack that makes equipment perform to a surprising level, offering a very low noise floor for greater definition of music and opening up the soundstage in all dimensions.
The X reference shelf is coated in Nextel and the SVT shelves are available in Solid Bamboo or Natural Wood veneer finish.
The X reference columns come in a Black finish and are available in 4 different heights to accommodate different sized components and can be easily interchanged if your system changes.
