The S2 Series is Solidsteel’s entry level range of products created to satisfy the very essential needs of those who have necessity of placing components on a basilar vertical structure made of Italian quality materials with a considerable convenience of prices. These modular products are designed for the most common components dimensions and are available only in two configurations: with 4 or 5 shelves.
Solidsteel S2 Series audio racks provide incredible isolation, increased audio performance, and rock-solid stability in an elegant design. Form follows function on S2, as the line’s clean looks blend in with any aesthetic. Boasting technological advancements that make for an even better-sounding and non-resonant structure, the Italian-made S2 Series takes equipment racks – and your components and music – to new levels of audiophile fulfillment.
Solid Shelving and Aluminum Poles for a Smarter Design S2 Series racks utilize MDF shelves and new, non-welded aluminum poles. Aluminum is lighter than steel, ridiculously strong, non-magnetic, and an excellent damping material. By eliminating welding from the equation, S2 racks eliminate resonances that develop in hollow welded posts. Unwanted energy and vibrations cannot seep into your rack. The aluminum poles also result in improved weight handling, vastly greater stability, and, since the shelves cannot resonate the poles, enhanced isolation for each component. In addition, S2 Series’ massive shelf design further keep resonance to a minimum.
S2 Series is sold at a tremendous value price like the 3-Series it replaced, with the S2 Series actually performing like the older elite 6 Series, making it an extreme value. In addition, due to the solid poles and the rigid coupling of the shelves to the posts, cones aren’t needed to compensate for resonances within the rack framework. Some advantages of the S2 Series even extend to shipping and initial playback. The lighter, modular poles can be placed into smaller and tighter boxes, which are easier to pack and ship, and ensure your rack arrives safely.
With S2 Series, Solidsteel has hit upon a genius design. Your components and, most importantly, your music will sound better because of it. Say goodbye to vibration and distortion, and “ciao” to unstinting stability and precise imaging with the S2 Series. Remember: A good equipment rack is as essential as good cables, powerful amplifiers, and revealing turntables. Because no matter how much you spend on your gear, you’re wasting your money if it isn’t resting on a support mechanism that provides terrific isolation, rock-solid stability, and vibration-free performance.
All the shelves are made of MDF wood (22 mm or 0,86 inch of thickness). The poles are made in anodized aluminium and the hardware parts are of AVP iron (galvanized to prevent rust). Our traditional and adjustable stainless steel spikes are included to finely regulate the frame on the ground. The steel discs (PADS) for the spikes are not included but available as separate accessories. The S2 products are only available in the black finish.
