”Not convinced a decent rack can make a difference? This Atacama offering could make you change your mind.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ 2018 award winner.
The Atacama Evoque Eco 60-40SE is available in natural bamboo and, at additional cost, Medium and Dark stain finishes.
Modular shelving systems and individual shelves are available with the 'Special Edition' improvements listed as 'NEW' below.
Atacama's high density carbonized bamboo gives significant major sonic advantages when compared to traditional hardwood and veneered supports, with its unique micro growth pore structure offering both excellent vibration absorbing and resonance controlling properties. The production processes, layering, density and overall thickness have been specifically chosen to give the best possible acoustic results.A.S.I.S.T dampening gaskets
Atacama Sonic Isolation System Technology (A.S.I.S.T) has been incorporated into each module. This consists of two dampening gaskets* in each leg designed to reduce "ringing" and to isolate the Aluminium components from the outer leg collar.Aluminium Top and Lower caps incorporating Leg Internal Suds.
These components act as resonance conductors, allowing an escape route for this energy away from the bamboo shelves so that it can be dissipated through to the floor.NEW- Mechanically Tuned Leg Lengths*
Leg lengths are 15mm longer than standard Evoque, thus lowering the resonance frequency of each module* when compared to an equivalent standard Evoque. The leg outer collars are powder coated in a Satin Black finish.NEW- Leg Tuning Counterweights*
By adding additional fully adjustable mass via Nickel plated Bronze frostrum cones to the leg internal studs*, the module frequency can be tuned to dial out the resonance of the specific equipment being supported.NEW-V.R.D.C Vectored Resonance Deflection Channels.
Each Bamboo panel has V.R.D.C Vectored Resonance Deflection Channels. V.R.D.C. is the three dimensional geometric design that has been crafted into the underside of each module. This complex pattern neutralises high frequency harmonic energy by directing it away from the supported equipment toward the leg grounding components. Each channel has been cut into a "V" shape so directing energy that is entering the shelf vertically into a horizontal axis so avoiding resonance feedback, maximising each modules performance.NEW - Bronze Isolation Coned Spikes*
With so much resonance being directed away from the bamboo, the spike interface has now been opened so avoiding a constriction of this energy and allowing it to freely dissipate to the floor.
*Due to the base modules requirement to release energy rather than control it, not all upgrades are incorporated fully into this module.
