Magico Introduces MRACK Audio Equipment Stand

The following is a press release issued by Magico. September 13, 2019 – Magico LLC is pleased to introduce the MRACK audio equipment stand. Over the past fifteen years countless amplifiers, DACs, servers, transports, turntables and cables have made their way in and out of the Magico listening room as we have prototyped and brought to market over two dozen speaker models. The cornerstones that have remained throughout it all are the Magico MRACK equipment stands. The MRACK was originally designed for our own internal R&D to maximize system performance where available options consistently fell short.… Read the full article

The Harmonic Resolution Systems VXR equipment rack – Uncrating

By | September 5th, 2019|Categories: Audio Federation|Tags: , , |

In this video we uncrate the middle section of HRS’s statement triple-wide VXR audio equipment rack and wheel it into the listening room.

Several more videos about this process are forthcoming.

Have to say I am getting attached to the look of this modern rack next to the modern-looking speakers [especially the Porsche Agate gray on wide cabinets] in this mid-century modern home.

It was also nice that there a definite sonic improvement over even HRS’s previous state-of-the-art MXR equipment rack – most notably in the control and articulation of the bass and midrange 🙂

Hack-a-Rack: An Equipment Stand for Audiophiles on a Budget from VTI

By | September 2nd, 2019|Categories: Positive Feedback|Tags: , |

VTI audio equipment rack

Yes, V-TEE-I. That is not a typo.

VTI is not from New Jersey; they don’t make turntables (although they support them nicely); as far as I know, the initials stand for something other than Virgo Taurus Industries. Actually, I had never heard of them until recently, myself. I was mulling the prospect of replacing my existing equipment rack(s) with something better suited to the limited space available in my new but smallish listening room. In my review of the Spatial Audio Hologram M-4 Triode Master speakers I included some pictures of the room.… Read the full article

My friend Chris brought over another piece of cool test equipment. This is not just an ohm meter but a MEGOHMMETER!!!!! Great googlie mooglie!! I’ve been honing my DIY skills repairing old test equipment. We have been through a stack of Sound Technology test gear. Next on the list may be a few old scopes. Not sure when we will get to this one but it sure is cool.

By | May 10th, 2019|Categories: Stereophile|

The big news in this excellent-sounding system was the two new power cables from Purist Audio Design. First was the Purist Diamond Limited Edition AC Power Cable ($6300/1 meter, with an ultimate length of 1.8 tip to tip).

AV RoomService EVPs (Equipment Vibration Protectors): Outstanding Equipment Isolation for Systems at Any Price Point

By | September 1st, 2018|Categories: Positive Feedback|Tags: , , |

AV RoomService EVPs

When this review offer came from Norman Varney’s company, AV RoomService, Ltd., I knew Norman from the Facebook experience, and I knew that he worked with custom audio installations that appeared to me to be fairly high-end. He seemed to me to be a really nice, knowledgeable guy, and I enjoyed seeing photos of some of the custom installations he was involved in. But the fact that his company designed and sold products aimed at improving the audiophile experience was completely off my radar.Read the full article
