The Hybrid’s latest developments allow flexibility like never before. Starting for example with a 4-shelf vertical rack you can easily reassemble with the focus on horizontal expansion such as a 2-shelf racks side by side. If needed later, you can build vertically again while keeping the horizontal foundation from earlier. With this type of flexibility there are endless of options to explore, meaning you can design the optimum A/V rack and tweak according to any changes you wish to make without any loss of platform-stability. Hybrid pillars and extrusions are available in silver, black and copper anodized aluminum.

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.

The hybrid 180 mm sideboard is a perfect compliment to the Hybrid rack. The multi usage purpose of the sideboard are for example: holder of RIA amp, CDs, remote controls, etc... The sideboard can be on either side of the rack and fully adjustable in height just like the normal Hybrid shelfs are. The sideboard is available in black, white and veneers in oak, black oak, walnut and cherry. The sideboard can be combined with any extrusion colour.
Hybrid top table is available in black and white MDF or veneered sandwich board.

Black and white painted board

Texture painted MDF with Spirit Level for easy leveling. Size is 695 x 520 x 22mm and weight is 6 kg. When only supported in the corners max recommended load is 60kg. However if the Hybrid’s top most shelf is raised and supports are placed between the Hybrid shelf and Top Table Shelf the load can be 125kg.

Veneered sandwich board

The Veneered sandwich board is available in oak, black oak, cherry and walnut. 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 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.
Cable Carrier for Hybrid standard racks. Available in black and silver. NOTE:
  • Cable Carriers cannot be combined with sideboard.
  • Using Cable Carriers unable the possibility to build a Hybrid rack rack side by side.

Hybrid Features

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.
