    Nothing of note

We tested the three-shelf version of this incredibly versatile support system, but you could spend a lot more –and it's worth every penny.

OK, it's never going to make a bad system sound good, but with high-end hi-fi the results are spectacular.
It adds space, refinement and extra detail; the top end is smoother, while bass gains crucial weight and power.
An exceptional piece of kit.
