6.2 Audio Table

as reviewed by John Acton

 

 

 

Just as with almost anything in life, audiophilia is a hobby rife with compromise. Audiophiles are necessarily limited in their selection of an audio system by numerous factors, the largest of which is typically budget. The eternal conundrum for us music lovers is—where does the hard-earned money go?  Better components? Better speakers? Better cabling? Power conditioning? Acoustical treatments for the room? It can become quite a balancing act to ensure that we realize the most bang for our buck as we approach a prospective upgrade. One aspect on which many audiophiles (myself included) tend to short-change themselves, is mechanical support and isolation for their systems. We keep hearing how pernicious the effects of vibration can be on a high-end audio system, but it's all too convenient to spend that money on something that seems to make a more ostensible difference. With the addition of the Solidsteel 6.2 Audio Table to my system, I have become convinced that a proper rack for housing one's system is as tantamount to overall system success as any other component.

Solidsteel is an Italian maker of audio/video racks and supports for a wide range of budgets and applications. Founded by two enthusiasts, one a prominent distributor of high-end audio equipment in Italy, the other a former engineer with Ducati, the company introduced its first audio racks in 1991. With their racks quickly garnering international acclaim for their unique blend of performance, aesthetics and relative affordability, Solidsteel has since expanded its distribution to more than 30 countries in Europe, America, Asia and Australia.

Regardless of price-point, all Solidsteel audio/video racks share a number of common characteristics designed to eradicate the influence of vibrations on a system's performance. The tubular frame employed in every Solidsteel rack is constructed of steel and finished in a special anti-resonant paint (black or silver), and the frame is further reinforced with a crimped steel bar at the end of every tube. Profligate mechanical resonance is dumped from the rack into the floor via height-adjustable spikes. The spikes are removable, to allow for the metal tubes to be filled with lead shot, sand or other material to further damp the rigid frame, if desired. Each shelf is isolated from one another, and from the overall frame, by duraluminium cones, which act to suppress and drain component-generated resonances. The shelves themselves are produced from high-density MDF, and are finished in anti-resonant paint (black or silver to match the frame).  Lastly, the height of each rack, and the associated spacing between the shelves, represents a carefully-chosen balance of performance and aesthetic goals.

The focus of this review is the Solidsteel 6.2 Audio Table, which represents the two-shelf version of the company's flagsh...
