Your Isolation Rack is the foundation of your Hi Fi System. It is the essential first building block to measure your Hi Fi Equipment and future investments.
The AG Lifter Apollo Isolation Rack is the statement model that redefines the reproduction of music in your space, by implementing mechanical isolation. Its elegant design is aesthetically pleasing, making your listening environment look spacious and contemporary.
The AG Lifter Apollo Isolation Modules incorporate all technology from the development of current isolation products by AG Lifter. A larger frame has been developed, allowing for wider settings that improve the scale of the soundstage, depth of bass and cohesiveness. Implementing the AG Lifter Apollo Isolation Rack in your system will result in a sense of upgrading of all your audio components. AG Lifter “H” Frames are standard on all Apollo finished modules, tensioning the framework for a clearer and highly focused sound. The “H” Frame in addition allows the user to order a top shelf specifically designed to suit Turntables or Electronics. The racking design is modular allowing the user to layer and then wire-up their audio components making it easier to assemble to a finished listening stage.
The AG Lifter Apollo Isolation Rack encompasses several layers of Isolation, starting from the ground using the AG Lifter Brass HPC (high performance coating) Dulcet 20 (Large) Isolation Feet. Each module is then decoupled utilising Stainless Steel bearings housed in a billet brass HPC machined cap, which is pressed into the vertical custom extrusion. Each acrylic shelf is upgraded to 20mm thick then isolated using the AG Lifter Brass HPC Dulcet 19 (Small) Isolation Feet. The AG Lifter Brass HPC Dulcet 19 Isolation Feet are distance settable (width and depth) for fine tuning.
Isolation devices and improved sound quality.
The presence of vibrations of various frequencies, also known as ‘resonance’ or ‘harmonics’, can be very harmful to the performance of audio components. In a music system, resonance can be ground-borne (be transmitted into the system up from the floor), air-borne (be transmitted into the system from the air surrounding the system) or originate from the actual audio equipment. Factors such as transformers, power supplies and electronic components resonate at various frequencies and these vibrations spread throughout the component internally and then out to the rack and through the rest of the system, mixing with vibrations caused by other pieces of equipment.
The performance of audio components are affected by these vibrations and in some cases they micro-phonically pick up these frequencies and repeat them, causing reverberations. The presence of resonances in a music system can result in a higher noise floor, ghosting effect, low level hum, a smearing, or lack of clarity of sound, blurriness or hard, glassy edge to your music.
Isolation devices mitigate these resonances, thus allowing the equipment to operate the way it was designed and to perform optimally.
All things start with a foundation.
The addition of an AG Lifter Apollo Isolation Rack can have the following effects on a system:
- Tonally correct sound and with increased weight, scale and authority.
- Sound stage height, width and depth is broader.
- Dampened background, lower noise floor.
- Imaging improves and the sonic presentation ‘snaps’ into focus.
- A deeper, tighter bass performance with increased definition.
- More ‘organic’, or natural textures.
- An increase in detail across all frequencies.
