What Hi-Fi? Verdict

This updated version of the award-winning Equinox serves up a good sound, but could do with more firmness

    Sweet midrange

    Fiddly to move and set up

    lacks some firmness and grip

The latest rack to emerge from the Atacama stable is the limited edition (of 500), stylish metal and glass Equinox Hi-Fi Celebration LE.

It's modular, and uses a delicate ball-bearing and cup support between its shelves. It's fiddly to move though, and the ball-bearings are prone to escaping.

Using the Celebration LE, our testing gear served up a warm and lively sound with a wide soundstage.

Vocals sound sweet and emotive in the mid-range, while the treble is pleasantly smooth with good detailing.

The bass is more than capable here, but could do with additional grip and firmness, especially when handling a complex song like Joss Stone's Fell In Love With A Boy.
