Quadraspire Q4 Wall Bracket

All our racks are designed to be light and rigid to deliver a clearer, cleaner musical performance. We achieve this by combining Wood or Bamboo shelving with solid Aluminium columns & feet. The advantages of Aluminium are its low weight, high strength and nonmagnetic properties as well as being a good thermal and electrical conductivity.


Hence we used it in the development our standard wall bracket which consists of a back plate with 2 arms that have holes for locating the adjustable spikes of the Q4 or SVT shelf and allows for precision levelling of the shelf. This wall bracket can hold any component up to 40 kilos. And has all the advantages of Bamboo construction.

We have developed new spike assemblies based on the design of the Bronze upgrade - one in Aluminium and one in Bronze. Clamping of the shelf is critical to performance but results in quite a tall spike assembly taking up more space than is necessary. Using the Bronze upgrade design we have been able to reduce the height and thereby the mass and improve performance as well. For the Aluminium version we include a small bronze spike so that it has some of the benefits of Bronze performance.


Again all of this has been achieved through R&D and extensive listening tests using the tried and tested technique of tuning by ear in the same way as the finest musical instruments are developed.

The main design features of the Wall bracket spike assembly are the SVT curve design of the top bolt and the rounded spikes that together encourage any residual mechanical resonance to flow and dissipate more easily.

The assembly consists of a Top Bolt and Lock nut and then a small rounded spike and smaller locknut that screws into the top bolt – all engineered at our factory south of Bath. The upgrade can be easily fitted to the top shelf of a Wall bracket for the benefit of the source component placed onto that shelf. Any component placed on a shelf fitted with the bronze upgrade will have a noticeable improvement, music becomes more open and involving without loss of detail.

Great Product; Pity about the instructions
Thursday, 12 July 2018  | 

This review may be of academic interest only, as I understand Quadraspire no longer supply the Q4 wall bracket.
However, my one critism also applies to the SVT wall bracket: the instructions are inadequate. For its size, and to take the weight the screws, or bolts that attach it to the wall need to be (in my judgement) 7mm or so diameter and 50-70 mm length (this is less important). This means the holes in the brackets need very careful drilling out -- the Q4 bracket is metal, the QVT wood so you do need the right tools -- and not over drill. There is nothing about this in the instructions and Quadraspire aren't exactly quick with their emails.

In short, expert fitting is required. Fortunately, the estimable guys at Analogue Seduction will do it for you if you ask them nicely. Rhe Q4 (and QVT) will then stay up, look good with a wife rating in the high 70% and, importantly, allow your equipment to sound its best!

Quadraspire Q4 Wall Shelf
Saturday, 17 June 2017  | 

I bought this item to support my Linn LP12 and to isolate it from the floor (and two dogs!). It works a treat and also looks very smart. I chose the Maple finish shelf and silver arms / bracket to match my existing furniture. The only slight issue was that the spiked feet required the weight of the deck applied to ensure they sat fully in the sockets on the arms. The shelf has definitely improved the performance of the LP12 over the basic table it was sat on originally.
