The Atacama Europa allows our test system to deliver an invigorating combination of class-leading detail with strong dynamics and fine rhythmic drive.

It's a modular design, with each shelf costing a neat £100 (you can specify as many shelves as you like – we've gone for four), and should you not need an 80cm-wide equipment support, Atacama will sell you a narrower version designed for your hi-fi kit. All in all, this is a fantastic purchase.
