This is an upgraded version of the standard Evoque 60-40 rack and like the original, this SE version is a major technical advancement in Atacama furniture design.
Available in a choice of natural, medium or dark bamboo finishes with a selection of shelf heights to choose from, you have greater flexibility to adapt the unit to your preferences and requirements.
Evoque Eco 60-40 Upgraded
This SE (special edition) variant of the hugely popular Atacama Evoque Eco 60-40 hi-fi rack is packed with several significant improvements that dampen, control, isolate and direct resonance away from the equipment.
These enhancements include lengthening the legs and incorporating rotating counterweights. The channels carved underneath the bamboo panels serve to improve more than just appearance, these Vector Resonance Deflection Channels guide vibrations towards the legs. The steel feet have been replaced with bronze Isolation Coned Spikes which promote a tighter flow of sonic and mechanical resonance.
As a result, the details in audio appear crisper and sturdier while low ends are better composed and instruments more organised. Despite all these improvements, this shelf remarkably comes with an rrp at only £25 extra a shelf.
Atacama’s high density carbonized bamboo gives significant major sonic advantages when compared to traditional hardwood and veneered supports, with its unique micro growth pore structure offering both excellent vibration absorbing and resonance controlling properties. The production processes, layering, density and overall thickness have been specifically chosen to give the best possible acoustic results.
A.S.I.S.T dampening gaskets
Atacama Sonic Isolation System Technology (A.S.I.S.T) has been incorporated into each module. This consists of two dampening gaskets* in each leg designed to reduce “ringing” and to isolate the Aluminium components from the outer leg collar.
Mechanically Tuned Leg Lengths
Aluminium Top and Lower caps incorporating Leg Internal Suds act as resonance conductors, allowing an escape route for this energy away from the bamboo shelves so that it can be dissipated through to the floor. Leg lengths are 15mm longer than standard Evoque, thus lowering the resonance frequency of each module when compared to an equivalent standard Evoque. By adding additional fully adjustable mass via Nickel plated Bronze frostrum cones to the leg internal studs, the module frequency can be tuned to dial out the resonance of the specific equipment being supported.
Vectored Resonance Deflection Channels
Each Bamboo panel has V.R.D.C Vectored Resonance Deflection Channels. V.R.D.C. is the three dimensional geometric design that has been crafted into the underside of each module. This complex pattern neutralises high frequency harmonic energy by directing it away from the supported equipment toward the leg grounding components. Each channel has been cut into a “V” shape so directing energy that is entering the shelf vertically into a horizontal axis so avoiding resonance feedback, maximising each modules performance.
Bronze Isolation Coned Spikes
With so much resonance being directed away from the bamboo, the spike interface has now been opened so avoiding a constriction of this energy and allowing it to freely dissipate to the floor.
The price shown is for one shelf only.
To order a full hi-fi rack, add each shelf to your basket separately (for example, start by selecting shelf colour and a "75mm base" as your first shelf. Then select shelf colour again and select shelf spacing for the next shelf on your rack. And so on, until you have as many shelves as you want. For a 4 shelf stand, you will add 4 shelves separately to your basket).

Matching Speaker Stands?
This beautifully crafted British made Atacama Evoque Eco 60-40 Special Edition hi-fi stand makes a stunning centerpiece ideal for supporting and maximizing the performance of premium hi-fi set-ups. To complete the look, we recommend adding matching bamboo speaker stands from our hugely popular and award winning Atacama Moseco Range which are available in various heights between 500-1000mm.
'Not convinced about the effect a decent rack can have on your system? This Atacama offering could change your mind. Best Equipment Rack 2016' (What Hi-Fi Awards October 2016)
'Atacama has highlighted how great an effect just about everything has on your hi-fi system; the Eco 60-40 SE rack really has everything going for it. For; betters composure and organisation of existing hi-fi equipment, Attractive design.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine October 2015)
'Being curious, we experimented taking apart the new and old Evoque Eco 60-40 and creating hybrids to test the new legs and panels separately. They’re dead right, each time there was an improvement on the sound when using the original model, and each time not quite as good as using all components of the Special Edition.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine October 2015)
'If you’re of the opinion all hi-fi racks are created more or less equal, the Atacama Evoque Eco 60-40 Special Edition is about to make you rethink your position.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine October 2015)
