Aspire Audio Belgravia 1
1 Shelf Audiophile Isolation Rack
If you are determined to achieve the most accurate, natural, life-like and enjoyable sound from your hi-fi system, at some point in your audio journey you will discover that what you place your component on directly influences the sound of the component. For example, an amplifier sounds different when it’s placed on a glass shelf compared to a wooden shelf or granite shelf. This is because every component produces various vibrational energies known as resonance and these energies interact with the material of the shelf. Resonances are also present within the stand, the shelf and in the environment around your system. All of these resonances interact at different frequencies and come back into your component which affects the ability of your component to sound it’s best. The difference in sound quality achieved by placing your system components on properly isolated shelves and racks can be extraordinary.
The Aspire Audio Belgravia 1 provides a solid foundation for one component with excellent resonance mitigation properties. It is composed of a carefully selected kiln dried FSR certified solid timber shelf and solid metal feet utilising a scientifically proven resonance elimination technology. Nothing hollow, no particle board – everything is solid, heavy and rigid. To manufacture the isolation mechanisms used by Aspire Audio, the level of precision engineering and manufacture is so demanding that only a select few artisans are capable of achieving this level of quality.
Two Belgravia 1 stands can also be used as amplifier stands for mono block amplifiers.
Before you consider upgrading your amplifier, DAC or streamer, perhaps consider making a one-time investment in quality component isolation. You may find that the improvements in resolution, clarity, detail and dynamics may be greater than your proposed component upgrade!
