NEWS: Quadraspire goes heavy duty but keeps its cool

First seen at the Bristol Sound & Vision show in February, the Quadraspire Sunoko-Vent equipment rack is now available.

The modular design is built to be heavy-duty, with each shelf able to hold up to 120kg, and to protect your floor it can be used with the company's QX7 feet, each of which can spread up to 200kg of load.

But as well as being strong, the rack is designed to help your system keep its cool: the shelves are slatted to improve airflow around components, and the uprights are available in a variety of lengths for optimal spacing.

The shelves, which can be decoupled for greater vibration isolation, come in three sizes – SVX for standard hi-fi components, the double-width SV2X and the even larger SVXL.

They're made of 2,5cm thick MDF with real wood veneers – oak, maple, cherry, rosenut, dark oak and black –, and the uprights are available in 10cm, 14cm, 18cm, 21.6cm, 25.6cm and 32.6cm lengths. They're of a solid concave design for added strength.

Prices start from around £180 per shelf including columns, and you can design your own rack using the product builder on the Quadraspire website, then order from a local dealer.
