A modular controlled resonance solution for hi-fi and home cinema systems
Although a series of prototypes have been designed in-house during the past 12 years for dealing with resonance in the support of equipment on stands and other furniture, each increasingly superior to anything else on the market, a little more time was required to finalise the overall development and to bring it to the market. The final version of the Vivacity AR anti-resonance equipment platform was launched in the second half of March 2008. The first review appeared in “Audiophile” magazine in June 2008, the High End Audio Journal of Hong Kong.At the core of Vivacity AR are equipment support panels incorporating NXT’s patented Distributed Mode Loudspeaker technology and anti-resonance and anti-vibration designs from QR Design and DNM Design – the creators of Ringmat.
The final version encompasses a number of improvements on the earlier planned version shown in 2005. The following are some of the changes:
The panels are now harder, and therefore faster, conveying a great deal more detail and with far greater dynamics. In comparison, the sound given by the earlier panels seemed much slower, boring even, though they still outperformed any alternative design on the market, such has been the degree of progress since 2005;
As a result of the improvements in hardness of the panels, there will now no longer be a need to impedance-match the platforms using acrylic panels. This introduces not only a big improvement in performance, but also means that it can be delivered at a much lower cost;
We have introduced a screen printed version of the panels, the ‘Fireworks’ version, in addition to the standard Vivacity panels, which not only looks better and is easier to use, but the sound is also superior;
There have been changes in the planned marketing of the panels, and all the arrangements are far more sophisticated for dealing with anticipated matching problems with existing stands.
There have many other detailed improvements.The size of the Vivacity AR Panels is retained at 445mm x 393mm for the initial launch and will carry weights up to 34.5kg. Later releases will address heavier items of equipment and the need for other panel sizes.
