Beautifully finished and highly regarded for its sound quality, the Hi-Fi Racks Podium Reference 4 tier is a hi-fi rack you’ll be proud to have on show.

Rock solid

One of Hi-Fi Racks most popular products, the multi-award-winning Podium Reference is a four-legged Hi-Fi rack constructed from your choice of solid hardwood. The sturdy 40mm plinths provide stiffness and stability, with each standard 595mm wide plinth weighing more than 10kg – adding to the rack’s density as well as absorbing vibration.

Flexible
The Podium Reference is a modular rack, with each tier designed to be placed seamlessly on to the next. The solid hardwood legs are removable and can be made to any length at no extra cost. This allows the Hi-Fi rack to fit around your system, and means you can keep adapting and upgrading your rack with extra tiers and/or longer legs as you add more equipment.

Isolated for the lowest sound distortion
Each leg comes with a 10mm thick, high tensile steel connection rod and isolating spiked feet, available in a choice of black or stainless steel, so you can isolate each tier from the next.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the wait Had been looking at the Hi-Fi Racks Podium for a while, I booked a demo for a set up at Richer Sounds Manchester, where Derek had alternatives on hand to compare against, also in the Demo room was the Hi-Fi Racks Podium Reference, so I could see for myself the quality of the units, The term measure twice cut once comes to mind as the Hi-Fi Racks web site can be confusing as the default widths are set to the smallest configuration. These units are made to order so can take a while to arrive but worth the wait.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful oak, great sound At age 71 I finally bought a hi-fi system from Richer Sounds. My wife insisted on an oak rack to fit in with other furniture etc. I am so pleased she did. The Podium Reference rack is a beautiful addition to our home, both as a piece of furniture and for the enhanced sound quality. (btw - also easiest self-assembly unit ever!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent advice and service I bought a turntable, cd/cassette player, amplifier and hi-fi rack. The help I got from every member of staff was excellent. They were unfailingly helpful, perceived my needs according to my budget and I am absolutely delighted with my new set-up
