Hybrid

Solidtech

Solid Tech’s Hybrid comes from a long heritage of award winning rack engineering and features all the top state-of-the-art engineering qualities that you would expect.
The Hybrid’s latest developments allow flexibility like never before. Starting for example with a 4-shelf vertical rack you can easily reassemble with the focus on horizontal expansion such as a 2-shelf racks side by side. If needed later, you can build vertically again while keeping the horizontal foundation from earlier. With this type of flexibility there are endless of options to explore, meaning you can design the optimum A/V rack and tweak according to any changes you wish to make without any loss of platform-stability. Hybrid pillars and extrusion are available in silver, black and copper anodized aluminium.

Hybrid example rack designs

Hybrid with 4 shelfs-kit



This example of Hybrid rack design consist of 4 shelf kits.

Hybrid Rack with Shelfs veneered in Walnut and black pillars



To enhance the Hybrid rack even more and to satisfy all tastes we are now introducing veneered shelfs in Cherry, Oak and Walnut. The veneer is of the same high quality as in the Radius rack system. With these shelfs the console is attached from the bottom meaning that there will be no visible screw heads. In-between the shelf and the console is also attached a piece of cork that aims to absorb even more any external and internal vibrations. Picture shows a 4-shelf example design with pillars in black anodized aluminium.

Hybrid Rack with shelfs walnut



To enhance the Hybrid rack even more and to satisfy all tastes we are now introducing veneered shelfs in Cherry, Oak and Walnut. The veneer is of the same high quality as in the Radius rack system. With these shelfs the console is attached from the bottom meaning that there will be no visible screw heads. In-between the shelf and the console is also attached a piece of cork that aims to absorb even more any external and internal vibrations. Picture shows a 3-shelf example design with pillars in silver anodized aluminium.

Hybrid Concrete



The Concrete material is selected due to its excellent audio characteristics and high density that will increase the rack’s stability. Unlike the body of a musical instrument, good audio racks should not vibrate, as modern drivers today render the full sound spectrum linearly. But if the rack itself does vibrate due to its construction or materials, then those vibrations affect performance by amplifying or diminishing certain sympathetic frequencies within the sound spectrum. It is a complicated physical process with a simple and clearly audible consequence. Concrete is Very heavy
Its weight and high density prevent it from vibrating.
Concrete is Irregularly structured
Vibrations can not spread.
Concrete is also a beautiful natural material that works in most house styles, moden as well as classic. There are no visible screw heads and the consoles are isolated with cork to avoid any potential tone or “singing”. Each shelf is handmade and will thus slightly differ from one another.

In-between the shelf and the console is also attached a piece of cork that aims to absorb even more any external and internal vibrations. Picture shows a 1-shelf example design with pillars in black anodized aluminium.

Hybrid sideboard



The hybrid 180 mm sideboard is a perfect compliment to the Hybrid rack. The multi usage purpose of the sideboard are for example: holder of RIA amp, CDs, remote controls, etc… The sideboard can be on either side of the rack and fully adjustable in height just like the normal Hybrid shelfs are. The sideboard is available in black or white that can be combined with any extrusion colour.

Turn Table Shelf



Texture painted MDF with Spirit Level for easy leveling. Size is 695 x 520 x 22mm and weight is 6 kg. When only supported in the corners max recommended load is 50kg. However if the Hybrid’s top most shelf is raised and supports are placed between the Hybrid shelf and TT-Shelf the load can be 125kg.

Hybrid Concrete shelf



Shelf for the Hybrid Rack made in Concrete. Dimensions: 490x435x22mm. Max load: 100 kg. Weight: 9,5 kg. The Concrete material is selected due to its excellent audio characteristics and high density that will increase the rack’s stability. Unlike the body of a musical instrument, good audio racks should not vibrate, as modern drivers today render the full sound spectrum linearly. But if the rack itself does vibrate due to its construction or materials, then those vibrations affect performance by amplifying or diminishing certain sympathetic frequencies within the sound spectrum. It is a complicated physical process with a simple and clearly audible consequence.

Concrete is Very heavy
– Its weight and high density prevent it from vibrating.

Concrete is Irregularly structured
– Vibrations can not spread.

Concrete is also a beautiful natural material that works in most house styles, moden as well as classic. There are no visible screw heads and the consoles are isolated with cork to avoid any potential tone or “singing”. Each shelf is handmade and will thus slightly differ from one another.

Hybrid extrusion



Hybrid Extrusion available in black, silver and copper anodized aluminium.

Hybrid isolation between shelfs



The block design does not only offfer endless flexibility but also ensures effective isolation between every shelf for enhanced performance. Externally as well as internally born resonances and vibrations are effectively reduced by the felt-padded isolation disc made from brass which create the necessary joint which stops the expansion of unwanted movements (resonances/vibrations)
