Featuring individually isolated shelves, the Norstone Bergen 2 gives your hi-fi the support it needs to sound its best.

INDIVIDUALLY ISOLATED SHELVES FOR SUPERIOR SOUND QUALITY


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 mistracking caused by heavy footfall in the room.

Finished in a smart gloss black with black shelves, the Norstone Bergen 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First HiFi stand After changing around the lounge and wall mounting my TV I was left with nowhere to house my AV equipment. I eventually decided on the Bergen 2 stand by Norstone. I couldn’t be more happier. It compliments my equipment and is well built. You just have to be careful not to lean on the rear corners and it’s only supported in the middle of the shelves. I adapted the feet allowing me more adjustment to get the stand level. It was easy to put together, I found it easier to connect the bottom equipment before installing the next shelve and working my way up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top tip This rack is a bargain and I've only used three of the four shelves. It's well made and easy to assemble. Top tip: Because there is a bit of slack in the drilled holes, if you tighten the legs before positioning each shelf, alignment can be very tricky. So, don't tighten the legs until you have the shelf in position, then tighten the legs. Simple and sturdy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great wee HiFi rack that doesn't break the bank! I bought this last week to properly store my HiFi separates, in order to properly isolate them from each other and surrounding vibrations. It arrived extremely promptly, was easy to assemble and set up and looks great in my living room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid! Good HiFi equipment stand and solid with it, esp for the price which, unusually for such a product, is less than the equipment itself!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Norstone - Norstone Bergen 2 Nice rack i needed a deep unit to house my amplifier. The only drawback was one of the threaded bars had no threads, having read previous reviews I'd already purchased some from screwfix..Its a solid unit when built so its best to install each Hi Fi component as you build it up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Norstone Bergen 2 Brought this to match with the furniture in the front room where the stereo is. Easy to put together, added some 8mm threaded rod to the legs with some locking nuts to get the top level for my turntable, easy to adjust with a bull's eye spirit level. Level and looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking solid HiFi stand Fitted my needs well - used in top of tv unit and only needed three shelves rather than 4. Gave me the flexibility to do that, unlike other models. Really solid unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect product I purchased this stand because of the individual shelf isolation along with the stylish look. Quite easy to assemble and to follow the instructions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small mod to make legs adjustable for levelling. Excellent Hi Fi stand, but with a small mod it becomes so much better giving adjustable feet for levelling, essential for turntables. Instead of using the supplied 3 small studs (8mm thread) on the bottom feet where the small spikes screw into, use 3 longer studs, enough to accommodate an 8mm nut and washer plus a bit extra for adjustment once the studs are screwed into the legs and spikes. This will enable you to level the stand by turning the studs, then locking the studs in place using the 8mm nuts. You should of course insure that the 3 spikes are fully screw tight onto the 3 longer studs, Then you can fit the longer studs into the lower legs until the stand is level, making sure you have a minimum of 8mm thread screwed into the 3 lower legs before tightening the 3 nuts with washers against the lower legs . Once that is complete check all nuts are tight and secure making sure there is a minimum of 8mm thread screwed into spikes and legs. I used 8mm stainless threaded bar with stainless nuts and washers. You can of course use any 8mm steel nuts and cut the head off a bolt leaving just the threaded part making a stud. See photo.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value for money This stand is a good size and able to to fit larger hifi and AV components with ease. It’s reasonably well made, easy to put together and has some nice features that you only get in much more expensive makes ! Only 4 stars as the feet spikes can’t be used to level the rack, however a great piece of kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very solid and well made, good value This rack weighs 23.5kg, and with spikey feet for my carpet it's really solid and stable. I get a noticeably better sound from my turntable than when it was on my old lightweight stand. All in all, and excellent product and good value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid and stylish Set up for my son’s room to move his audio kit and laptop off his desk. Easy assembly just watch your back with the heavy glass shelves. Less industrial than the front room Mana supports and nice isolation of each layer with spikes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product looks really good A great product which looks good and contributes to isolating the equipment thus limiting vibration and contributing to a better sound overall

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to assemble, quality construction I bought this two weeks ago and I am very impressed. This hi fi rack has really improved the overall sound quality of my system. The service from Richer Sound was , as always, excellent. It was very easy to construct and the build quality is very good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smart looking stand With new speakers I wanted a new stand for the stereo to complete the look. It was a Saturday and I wasn't willing to wait to order one in so my options were limited. We went for the Norstone because it's quite narrow and fit in a corner nicely. It assembled easily and quickly and is pretty sturdy. The only downside is it's not the easiest to move into position once assembled as it's not held together by screws.
Date published: 2019-04-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It looks great I bought this along with a new amp and speakers. The system is great and the Norstone Bergen ideal. And it fits in the space I have whilst so many others were to big
Date published: 2019-03-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality rack at a very reasonable price. Assembly is a bit fiddly but produces good solid rack. I put the base together first and then loosely assembled the the next shelf and located the spikes in their recesses before tightening them by hand. I then did the others the same way.
Date published: 2019-01-03
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pity it was second hand I purchased the hifi stand a week after I purchased a new system when started to assemble the unit some parts were missing .When I phoned Richer sounds they said the parts were on the office desk and had come out of packing when they checked the stand so i collected these and started construction again . Unfortunately the leg assembly had stripped thread ? Hence the reason it was not in the box I don't think I will be visiting Richer sounds in the future .Also the £25 pound Cambridge audio phono lead I purchased at the same time was intermitant and needed to be soldered to cure the problem

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks good Needed a HiFi rack for awhile. This unit was priced very competitively compared to others, only used 3 of the 4 shelves due to placement issues. Went up with the minimal amount of swearing which is a bonus. Looks good, definitely would recommend

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value - tricky assembly! I bought this because I like the look and the price, especially when looking at other v expensive stands. What I didn’t factor in was the practicalities of pulling off a balancing act! You have thre independent shelves that have to balance on each other and three discs, so positioning is everything. Very frustrating but worth it...eventually.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing value for money I was originally going to get the atacama hi fi rack for £500 but after seeing this next to the atacama in store i choose this one as it looks way nicer and it saved me £350! Take your time setting this up as it is quite faffy but the rewards will pay off. My records certainly sound more detailed and bass sound more defined (running a technics 1210 mk2) . Overall Very cheap for what you get and a big thumbs up for the sound quality improvement i gained.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Norstone Bergen 2 Stylish HI-FI rack! I'm very happy with my new upgrade. Great service from Richer Sounds!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hmmmm I bought this a month ago and after much anticipation got my room ready for assembly. All going well until the last shelf: one of the silver shelf support pieces (parts A1, photos below) was NOT screw threaded to take the bar to connect it to the leg. Major disappointment as now I have to either take it all apart and repackage it for the sake of 1 item or make the trip to Richer Sounds and see if they can help. I'll ring first and tell them the problem and hopefully they'll come up with a solution instead of me visiting B & Q to purchase a tap and die set!
Date published: 2018-06-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top quality and we'll thought out hi-fi stand This hi-fi stand really is fantastic. No more moving the entire stand to get at wiring just simply lift the top tier off to get to the back of amp. Easy to build and unbeatable quality.
