Stillpoints Component Stand SS
For Amplifiers or Components
The Component Stand SS is designed to accommodate Stillpoints vibration isolation devices (sold separately). With the component on the stand, the components original feet are bypassed, with Stillpoints make contact with the bottom of the chassis and dissipating the micro vibrations that are generated by the electrical current running through the devices on the circuit board, and following the circuit board standoff down to the chassis' bottom.
NOTE: The Stillpoints Component stand does NOT include Stillpoints isolation devices themselves. You choose which Stillpoints Vibration Isolation device to configure with your rack. Please contact us for recommendations if in doubt.
The Ultra 6 and Ultra SS series 2 are recommended because they have pockets of Stillpoints technology on both the top and bottom sides, allowing them to absorb and dissipate resonance and vibration going to and coming from the component itself.
The Stillpoints Component Stand SS is the Stillpoints answer for audio systems requiring the remote placement of stereo or mono block amplifiers too large to place in a standard rack. The Component Stand SS can also be used to support individual components at floor level should that be a preferred system setup approach as well.
As an example, using the Component Stand to support mono block or stereo amplifiers allows placement of these components closer to loudspeakers. Closer to the loudspeaker means shorter speaker cables.
The stainless-steel (SS) Component Stand frame is available in three leg or four leg versions, in both nine- and eleven-inch leg lengths. The Component Stand is to be used in combination with the Ultra product of your choice: Ultra Mini, Ultra II, Ultra SS V2, Ultra 5 V2, or Ultra 6 V2.
Rigid, Minimalist Design With A Purpose
The robust stainless-steel frame design allows components of high mass to be supported easily. Many other stands or platforms designed for this use are made of large square or rectangular plinths. These stands, with large surface areas, are subject to becoming resonant diaphragms themselves, absorbing and reflecting airborne and mechanical vibration.
By comparison, the Component Stand SS is a strut like structure with little surface area to be affected by resonance. The open design of the Component Stand SS also allows airflow to circulate and cool the component.
Tuning of the stand to your component is one of the strengths of the Component Stand SS. The legs can be rotated around a central hub to accommodate components of multiple sizes. Within the frame, you can move the Ultra filtering devices along the rail system in each leg.
Adjusting the location of the filter along each rail allows you to determine the best position to both support the component and maximize the filtering of vibration borne resonance for best fidelity. This system allows components to perform at a maximum of their potential.
