There are some people who don't believe racks make much difference to the performance of a sound system. We disagree. Hi-fi or home cinema electronics need support and isolation to have the best chance of delivering everything they've got.
The racks are meticulously made in the town of Bath in the UK. Quadraspire has a state-of-the-art facility, with the latest in CNC machining for the raw shelf components and an automotive spray facility to apply all of their finishes.
"The difference was instantly apparent, with the EVO shelved gear taking on a more open and focused presentation. It was enough of an obvious difference that can be easily heard even with a modestly priced system. While my current use for the Q4 EVO is a $60,000 dCS Paganini stack, I noticed a substantial jump in image focus with my Naim Uniti and Rega P3-24 turntable on the EVO rack, compared to one of my DIY racks that pays no attention to vibration control" Tone Publications
The Q4 EVO arrives well-packed, with high-density foam bumpers to protect all of the edges, and it can be assembled in about 15 minutes. It is worth noting that the enclosed instructions are excellent. I found that fairly large pliers used with a thick piece of rubber (to protect the hardware from damage) were the best way to tighten the rack enough so it was not wobbly. The caps that attach to the top of the rack have holes that can be adjusted with the supplied tool. I did notice that after a few weeks, the rack required additional tightening, but it remained stable after that.
While some equipment-rack manufacturers take the high-mass approach to eliminating vibration, Quadraspire goes the exact opposite, going in a low-mass direction.
