What Hi-Fi? Verdict

This distinctive and stylish rack is perfect for those who like a lighter listen

Pros

  • + Smooth treble, great detailing, fast, good looks

Cons

  • - Lacks some weight in the bass and mid-range

This distinctive rack has a cable management system for those who like things tidy.

With our test system – the Cyrus CD8se CD player, Roksan Caspian M-series amplifier and ATC SCM11 speakers – the Aero has a good grasp of detailing and displays a smooth treble, although bass and midrange could do with extra weight.

Ideal if you like a lighter listen.
