Atacama Evoque Eco 60-40 Special Edition Equipment Stand
"a major technical step in Atacama hifi furniture design"
Based on the award winning standard Evoque Eco series, the Special Editionincorperates significant sonic and mechanical resonance control upgrades designed specifically for the hifi enthusiast who is looking for the ultimate in musical performance.
This visually attractive and beautifully crafted British made modular support makes a stunning centerpiece and is perfect for both supporting and maximising the performance of quality hifi equipment.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Bronze Isolation Coned Spikes (Optional Extra)
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.
Being a grass, bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on the planet that when harvested will continue to grow allowing a new crop every 5 to 7 years. Because of this fast renewable growth, bamboo absorbs high levels of CO2.
Because of its fast growth rate and high CO2 absorption, when factoring in processing, manufacturing and shipping bamboo remains a Carbon neutral material.
The type of bamboo plant used in the Construction of Atacama supports is not a food source for humans or endangered animal species (Panda friendly!).
- Bamboo is a natural material so colour, texture, grain and age may give a variable appearance to each module.
- Evoque ECO is made in the UK.
