Evoque Eco Special Edition
Atacama are a renowned and multi award winning manufacturer of quality hifi and home cinema furniture components, based in Leicester, UK. While many quality hifi stand manufacturing companies market and brand themselves as skilled carpenters and hifi fanatics, Atacama take great pride in offering a product that not only portrays true craftsmanship but also features the innovative brains of an 'engineering company', employing intricate and highly developed methods of reducing and dissipating mechanical noise from your hifi equipment to avoid these parasitic resonances from interfering with different hifi separates.
Atacama mainly use bamboo for the production of their stands and racks, which not only possesses anti-resonant properties but also grows at a much faster rate than other woods, allowing for a more ecologically and environmentally friendly solution.
The Evoque Eco range from Atacama features three sub-series, all of which follow the basic aesthetic design and construction principles. These are the hifi width model (60-40), the AV/double width model (110-40), the compact version (35-40) and also the custom series.
Each of the Evoque Eco modular platforms utilise 40mm carbonised bamboo with your choice of three interchangeable heights for the legs which are designed to hold up to 30kg of weight per level. The high gloss legs fitted to the shelf modules are black powder coated and built with Atacama's highly renowned 'A.S.I.S.T' functionality (Atacama Sonic Isolation System Technology). This tech makes use of dampening gaskets and carbon steel studs, combined with aerospace-grade aluminium grounding components that are matched to fully adjustable, nickel-plated 8mm steel spikes. This intricate and intelligent anti-resonant/noise dissipating leg design is one of the many construction elements that set Atacama apart from their competition.
The Special Edition model of the Evoque Eco uses the same design aesthetic as the standard version, but sees a number of acoustic improvements over the design, upgrades that allowed the SE to claim What Hifi's 'Best Equipment Support' award in both 2015 and 2016. In addition to ASIST dampening gaskets, the SE version utilises mechanical grounding technology and vectored resonance deflection channels, along with leg tuning counterweights, mechanically tuned leg lengths and also bronze isolation coned spikes.
