ESS-Racks Equipment Isolation Rack By Stillpoints
Stillpoints ESS Racks possess an uncanny ability to lower the noise floor in your system with its innovative isolation technology. With these brilliantly innovative designs, the ESS Rack will take your system into the realm of absolute silence.
Stillpoints ESS racks offer an elegant and effective solution for housing your precious audio gear. The ESS Rack is based on an unobtrusive, open, and flexible architecture that allows your audio gear to reach its full potential without the constraints of a massive or bulky rack. The result is dramatically improved dynamics and interstitial detail.
Built to your specification
Configure the Stillpoints ESS Rack to optimize the space needed, and the performance of each component. Each rack requires two masts, two cross bars, shelves consisting of pairs of support bars, and the shelves can be outfitted with your choice of acrylic platforms, X Grids, or Rail Grids.
The foundation of each rack is a pair of masts of your chosen height. Masts are tube assemblies with cabling spanning the arms and legs. The height measurement is taken from the floor to the top of the arm, and rounded to the nearest inch.
Two Cross Bars are required to connect the right and left masts to form a frame. The width specified with each set of cross bars is the maximum space that a component will fit.
Support Bars are pairs of bars fastened to the front and rear mast cables. A pair of support bars form the foundation for one shelf level. The bars contain isolation technology pockets, designed to work with acrylic shelves, or X Grids. Rail Grids can be used between the isolation. The addition of Acrylic shelves, X Grids, or Rail Grids will accommodate the Ultra of your choice to complete the shelf assembly.
Components can be placed directly on Acrylic Shelves in dimensions of 16×26″ and 16×20″ (and double 20″ on a 40″ ESS Rack). The shelves come standard with a Set Screw Kit allowing for an efficient installation on the isolation pockets.
The X Grid can also be fitted on the isolation pockets. These grids offer thread fittings that allow the user to fasten isolation footers at multiple positions along the Grid.
The Rail Grids mount across the front and rear support bars and slide to the desired position. Channels in the top of each rail hold T-nuts that can attach a Stillpoints isolation footer and be moved forward or back as needed. The Rail Grid adds greater rigidity than the standard X Grid, supports heavier components more effectively, and allows greater flexibility for Ultra footer placement specific to each component while taking full advantage of the suspended isolation that is the hallmark of the ESS Equipment Rack.
“I therefore give the Stillpoints ESS Rack System and Ultra V and SS Isolation Feet my highest recommendation, without hesitation, and with deep enthusiasm.”
The Absolute Sound
“The ESS rack profoundly improved the performance of my audio system, allowing it to further resolve the very fine micro-details that enhance a sense of musical verisimilitude. The improved resolution and clarity were so palpable that at times I found myself listening at lower volume levels with total satisfaction. For anyone intent on obtaining a more suave and supple, refined and precise sound, Stillpoints delivers the goods.”
