Hybrid Wood

Hybrid Wood black oak with Isolation Shelves HD and top shelf in concrete

Hybrid Wood is a rack series within the Hybrid rack series. The aluminum corner pillars are dressed in solid wood both on the front and on the side to give a more warm and home friendly touch. The solid wood part is available in black oak, cherry, oak and walnut of highest possible quality. These new pillars are best fitted with the veneered shelves or concrete shelves that are the same as the shelves in the standard Hybrid rack series, both with and without integrated isolation system.

Black Oak, Walnut, Oak and Cherry

The pillars can be ordered with or without integrated isolation system. The isolation is based mechanical suspension system that very efficient cancel all non desired vibration that origin from the floor or from the equipment itself. In Hybrid Wood the isolation system is hidden in the pillar in order to be as discrete as possible.

Four pillar lengths, 200, 275, 350 and 670mm

The pillars come in package of two with one left and one right mounted side wooden part.

Standard pillar lengths are 200, 275, 350 and 670mm. To the Hybrid Wood is also available turntable top shelf. The turntables are made of a sandwich board available in black oak, oak, walnut and cherry. To the rack can be equipped a sideboard also available in black oak cherry, oak and walnut.

Hybrid Wood here in walnut and Hybrid Isolation shelf-kit HD in concrete. Top shelf in walnut with Hybrid wood isolation system.

Isolation is very important as it is no doubt it will enhance the sound quality extensively.

Isolation Shelves will effectively damp the equipment both from internal as well as external vibrations using two shelves with a mechanical suspension isolation system in-between.
The advantage of the Hybrid Isolation Shelf is that each module will be individually isolated and the rack will keep its stability.

The Hybrid isolation shelves bottom shelf is available in black as well as white. The top shelf is available in black, white, walnut, cherry, oak, black oak and concrete. Extrusions in black, silver or copper.

The Concrete material is selected due to its excellent audio characteristics and high density that will increase the rack's stability. Unlike the body of a musical instrument, good audio racks should not vibrate, as modern drivers today render the full sound spectrum linearly. But if the rack itself does vibrate due to its construction or materials, then those vibrations affect performance by amplifying or diminishing certain sympathetic frequencies within the sound spectrum. It is a complicated physical process with a simple and clearly audible consequence.

  • Concrete is very heavy that will give the rack more stability
  • Its weight and high density prevent it from vibrating
  • Concrete is irregularly structured that will prevent vibrations to be spread

Concrete is also a beautiful natural material that works in most house styles, modern as well as classic. There are no visible screw heads and the consoles are isolated with cork to avoid any potential tone or “singing". Each shelf is handmade and will thus slightly differ from one another.BUY NOW

Hybrid Wood Top suspension measurement analysis in 50Hz

• 30kg loaded on 4 isolator spots with 3 springs per spot
• Peak improvement with isolation: 92%
• Vibration source is situated below the object and the sensor above the isolated rack shelf.
Extrusions are available in Copper, Silver and Black.
Hybrid Wood corner pillars are available in four sizes
  • 200mm
  • 275mm
  • 350mm
  • 670mm
Hybrid Wood suspended corner pillars have the same sizes.  
To the new Hybrid Wood corner pillars is also new turntable developed. These new turntables are made of a sandwich board that have been veneered in black oak, oak, walnut and cherry. The sandwich board consists of 4 layers:
  • Layer 1: thin sheet of cork on the top to avoid any potential ringing in the table
  • Layer 2: MDF
  • Layer 3: Porous damp layer that will absorb and remove resonance in the table
  • Layer 4: MDF
  The top table Shelf has a thickness of 24mm width of 527mm and  a length of 705mm.   The board has been tested by letting a 9,8g steel ball be dropped 50 cm above the sandwich board and compared with a standard MDF board. The result is described in below table:
Test object Peak value (dB) Peak average over 3 seconds (dB)
Sandwich board 109,7 dB 73,9 dB
Standard MDF board 119,9 dB 87,1 dB
From the result one can read that the sandwich board basically damp with 10-13dB compared to a standard MDF board. The large top tables have a limitation of load as it is placed on top of the corner pillars of the Rack of Silence. The maximum load is 50kg. If further load is required it is recommended to place the uppermost rack shelf just beneath it and use the apparatus support to assist the support of the table. In this way the maximum load can be increased to 160kg.
To match the veneered shelves for Hybrid and Hybrid Wood is now also available Veneered sideboards for Hybrid wood and Hybrid. The Sideboard purpose is to keep the shelves with the equipment free from accessories such as remote controls, RIA amps or CD covers.
Top lid for Hybrid Wood are available in black oak, oak, cherry and walnut. If no top shelf/turntable shelf is used it is recommended to use top lids.
Available in black oak, oak, walnut and cherry. Four sizes: 200, 275, 350 and 670mm

Measurements of the Hybrid rack series

The block design does not only offfer endless flexibility but also ensures effective isolation between every shelf for enhanced performance. Externally as well as internally born resonances and vibrations are effectively reduced by the felt-padded isolation disc made from brass which create the necessary joint which stops the expansion of unwanted movements (resonances/vibrations)

Hybrid Extrusion available in black, silver and copper anodized aluminium.
