Atacama Evoque Eco 60/40 Special Edition 2 - Single Shelf
Whether it is used for optimising space or beautifully displaying your equipment, Atacama's Evoque Eco 60/40 Special Edition 2 is a perfect compliment to any home setup.
Atacama Evoque Evo 60/40 SE2
The Atacama Evoque Eco 60-40 SE2 brings the latest technological upgrades to the award winning Evoque range, featuring additional advancements in deflection channels and leg component design over the standard Evoque and Evoque Eco Special Edition.
This high density carbonised bamboo gives significant major sonic qualities when compared to traditional hardwood and veneered supports, with its unique micro growth pore structure offering both vibration absorbing and sound dampening properties.
Each module is cut, finished and then polished by hand at the UK based Atacama factory giving this rack a stylish, modern appearance.
Being a grass, bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on the planet that when harvested will continue to grow allowing a new crop every 5 to 7 years. Because of this fast renewable growth, bamboo absorbs high levels of CO2.
Because of its fast growth rate and high CO2 absorption, when factoring in processing, manufacturing and shipping bamboo remains a Carbon neutral material.
The type of bamboo plant used in the Construction of Atacama supports is not a food source for humans or endangered animal species (Panda friendly!).
Please note:- Bamboo is a natural material so colour, texture, grain and age may give a variable appearance to each module.
Available Shelf Heights - 165mm, 215mm, 265mm or 300mm
Atacama’s high density carbonised 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 incorporating Leg Internal Suds.
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.
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– 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-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. 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.
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.
