Standard Evoque Features & Benefits
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.
- Aluminium Top and Lower Caps connected via Internal Studs.
These components 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.
Additional Evoque Eco 60-40 SE features and benefits
- SE Upgrade- Mechanically Tuned Leg Lengths*
Leg lengths are 15mm longer than standard Evoque, thus lowering the resonance frequency of each module* when compared to an equivalent standard Evoque.
- SE Upgrade-Leg Tuning Counterweights*.
By adding fully adjustable Nickel plated Bronze frostrum counterweights to the internal leg studs*, the module frequency can be tuned to dial out the resonance of the specific equipment being supported.
- SE Upgrade-V.R.D.C 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.
- SE Upgrade-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.
Additional Evoque Eco 60-40 SE2 features and benefits
- 8. SE2 Upgrade over SE– Improved Mechanically Tuned Leg Lengths*
Leg lengths are 5mm longer than standard Evoque SE, thus further lowering the resonance frequency of each module* when compared to an equivalent standard Evoque SE.
- SE2 Upgrade over SE– A.V.R.D.C Advanced Vectored Resonance Deflection Channels.
Each Bamboo panel has new A.V.R.D.C Advanced Vectored Resonance Deflection Channels.
A.V.R.D.C. is the three-dimensional curvature geometric design that has been crafted into the underside of each module. This newly developed multi curve 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 then curved so directing the maximum amount of energy that is entering the shelf vertically into a horizontal axis towards the leg
components so avoiding resonance feedback and maximising each modules performance.
- SE2 Upgrade over SE– Advanced Bronze Isolation Coned Spikes.
With so much resonance being directed away from the bamboo, the spike interface has now been further opened so avoiding a constriction of this energy and allowing it to freely dissipate to the floor. These new spikes are longer and shaped to maximise energy transference between each module while still offering a level of isolation. We call this Mechanical Grounding.
- SE2 Upgrade over SE– Side Edge Contoured Bamboo Panels.
By adding contoured edges to the two side faces of each bamboo module, resonance energy in the form of standing waves can be avoided and are instead directed towards the new A.V.R.D.C channels so aiding the efficiency of each shelf. When the wave bounces off the edge surface, it changes phase. In the case of waves that create a standing wave, the reflected wave is a mirror image of the original. The waves then combine. If the amplitudes of the two waves have the same sign (both positive / both negative), they will add together to form a wave with a larger amplitude. This adding together is called constructive interference. The Side edge contouring helps to avoid this.
*Due to the base modules requirement to release energy rather than control it, not all upgrades are incorporated fully into this module.
IMPORTANT- PLEASE READ: -
Bamboo is a unique material so will not match other woods. The colours shown in the photography are a representation taken in a very well-lit photo studio under artificial light. Do not attempt to use these images to match with other woods and furnishings as batch colour, shading, room lighting, natural variation, and wood grain will be different. Even the differences between viewing screen types will make colour matching impossible.
As a (very!) rough guide, under normal home lighting conditions, typically Natural finish generally has a buttery like appearance with the Dark Finish having a Dark chocolate look. THERE WILL BE VERIATIONS EVEN WITHIN THIS DISCRIPTION.
Any number of modules can be used providing the maximum overall height of the support does not exceed 1255mm (50").
30kg per level loads can be exceeded by an additional 15kg on the base module providing the extra weight used is deducted from the overall capacity of the modules placed upon it.
