A hi-fi / audio device needs to be placed on something. That can be a small table, or a wall mounted solution, but with a solid system that is often not so convenient. Bigger audio devices are often heavy. In addition, you need somewhere to put the cables. Think of power cords, interlinks or speaker cables.
For the serious enthusiast and fine tuner, special hi-fi racks have been developed. Or hi-fi furniture, as some also call it.
This special audio furniture not only looks nice: it works just a bit more convenient with the routing of cables and they absorb resonances, which in turn can improve musical reproduction. After all: vibrations are energy. And that energy often does not belong in music…
A few well-known brands of audio racks are Bassocontinuo, Spider, Quadraspire, Norstone, Solidsteel and Finite Elemente.
