There are some people who don’t believe racks make much difference to the performance of a sound system. We disagree – hi-fi or home cinema electronics need support and isolation to have the best chance of delivering everything they’ve got.
In our experience, the best AV racks can have a notable affect on the performance of equipment. Clever design elements such as spikes and dampening gaskets help to kill vibration, upgrading the musical performance of your kit.
So what do you need to know about racks? Most are modular, so you can select the number of shelves you need. They’re usually flat-pack but easy to assemble in around 15 minutes or so. You’ll also want to pay attention to the type of wood used to make the shelves and choose a finish that suits your style.
We’ve drawn up a list of the best hi-fi and AV racks below. And with Black Friday and Cyber Monday around the corner, it’s a good time to be keeping an eye out for AV deals.
