For sale is a pair of beautiful HiFi racks recently traded in by a dear client of ours undergoing a complete HiFi makeover. Each rack frame was constructed by Symposium Acoustics and consists of three (3) shelves. The rack frame itself if made out of machined aircraft-grade aluminum and at the time of construction retailed for $4000 per rack. Talking to Peter (owner of Symposium Acoustics) if the rack frame were in still in production today it would cost around $8000 (or DOUBLE the last known retail price)!!! This rack is EXTREMELY well built and exudes beauty and quality.
Each rack has been fitted with custom COST NO OBJECT performance shelves from German manufacturer Acapella. The information available on these shelves is somewhat scarce but from what we can gather on the internet these shelves retailed for $3700 EACH and when paired with the Symposium Rack Frame it creates an incredibly solid foundation capable of supporting nearly any piece of HiFi regardless of weight, size, or cost. Each shelf has an approximate dimension of 21" wide and 20" deep.
-Each Three (3) Shelf Rack Complete w/ The Acapella Shelves Retailed For $15,100
-Both Racks & All Six (6) Shelves Retailed For $30,200 (Perhaps in Today's $$$ the retail would be closer to $38,200 per Peter of Symposium Acoustics.)
-Each Rack Is Fully Assembled & Ships Via Palletized Freight. Please Budget $500 Per Rack/Per Skid For Freight Shipment. If You Would Like To Purchase Both Racks We Can Reduce The Freight To $800 Total.
-The Racks Have Been Used But Not Abused. We Have Rated It A 6 Out Of 10 To Be Conservative.
-We Are Offering Each Rack w/ 3 Shelves For $6500 + Freight.
-We Are Offering Both Racks w/ 6 Shelves, To The Same Customer, For $9800 + Freight
Here is some additional information regarding the Acapella shelves:
All powered electronics within a device are producing electromagnetic vibrations. Depending on the design and material of the devices, these vibrations have a greater or lesser degree of effects in the form of mechanical resonances. These resonances will reduce perfect operation of the electronics, such as transistors, valves, resistors, boards, high frequency coils, power supplies etc. Therefore, Hifi components will show the following effects: limited dynamics, non-transparent sound reproduction at lower volumes. Inaccurate reproduction of impulses at higher volumes; limited soundstaging and imaging, balance inaccuracy of the stereo signal will result in the lack of a definite center between the loudspeakers.
Depending on the design of your components and the possibility of a "coupling", Acapella bases "Fondato Silenzio" can eliminate the above described effects and will optimize the sonic performance of your Hifi system. Due to the reduced electromagnetic distortions, sound reproduction of your components will be more lively, more three-dimensional, cleaner and, at low volumes, much more transparent.
If we assume that all components of your Hifi system have been optimized by using Acapella’s bases, then you will have a sound experience that is only comparable with the three-dimensional reproduction of live music: a holographic event.
The above mentioned resonances of the electronics are transmitted to the boards. Through the fixings of the boards, these resonances can cause vibration of the casings. At this point, Acapella’s base gets its full damping effect. The resonances will be diverted to the aluminum surface. From this surface, the resonances go immediately into layers of plumb and felt and will finally be eliminated within a layer of finest quartz sand.
