AG Lifter Euphonious Amplifier Stand
High Performance Isolation Amplifier Stand
Many manufacturers of high-end audio electronics, digital sources and turntables have repeatedly expressed that you have never truly heard a component’s sonic capabilities unless you hear it when it has been effectively isolated. Such are the effects of resonance within music systems that by simply adding isolation devices to your hi-fi system can instantly and completely transform the sound.
The AG Lifter Amplifier Stand is custom designed for the weight and dimensions of most heavy weight Power Amplifiers and Power Conditioners/Regenerators. The Amplifier Stand will improve the performance of your Power Amp/Conditioner/Regenerator by lowering the noise floor creating a blacker background. This will result in increased openness, detail and bass response; all the same advantages of the signal and source level components on the AG Lifter Crescendo 4 Shelf Rack.
What is unique about these rack systems is that they use the Dulcet Isolation Feet technology throughout the rack whereas a more common approach is to use spike or cone technology. This difference is immediately palpable when comparing AG Lifter Racks to other brands and as a result, the AG Lifter Amplifier Stand system outperforms other competing offerings which come at a considerably higher price. In terms of outright performance and value for money, the AG Lifter Amplifier Stand is exceptional.
Why do isolation devices improve 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.
What is the effect of introducing isolation devices to a system?
- The sound becomes tonally correct and with increased weight, scale and authority.
- Sound stage height, width and depth is expanded.
- Quieter 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.
