picture) at a lower price. But our “no

compromise” approach also applies here.

Horizontal Tables

As part of our Series Three and Five ranges,

we offer horizontal tables that are ideal for

both A/V and traditional Hi-Fi systems.

Elegant solutions for beautifully integrating

audio and video components into the home

environment.

Speaker Stands and

Amplifier Bases

If you want the most rigid, acoustically

neutral, and best-looking platforms for your

bookshelf or surround speakers, or your

amplifiers, look no further.

The improvements to the sound of your

system may surprise you.

Accessories

Our duraluminium cones - fundamental to

the quality of Solidsteel tables - are also

available separately to help solve your

system’s isolation problems.


Since their introduction in 1991,

Solidsteel audio tables have

established a new level of technical

and aesthetic refinement for audio and

video component support and isolation.

The company was founded by two men with

diverse backgrounds but the same goal: to

build a truly high-end hi-fi table.

One was the president of a firm distributing

many top audio lines in Italy.

After a relatively short time, Solidsteel

gained worldwide recognition for their

advances in design and manufacturing

techniques. The international press have

universally praised the tables - and in some

cases awarded them “best in class” - for the

improvements they can make to an audio or

audio/video system:

- “The Solidsteel...stands were both

sonically splendid and very pleasant to

look at - an unusual combination in an

equipment stand. They worked

flawlessly, performed admirably and

looked lovely.” “Heartily recommended.”

Jack English - Stereophile (USA) Vol. 17

- “For loudspeakers of small and medium

dimensions, the model SS-7 is without a

doubt the best stand available in the

world. Additionally, it’s beautiful.”

Bebo Moroni - Suono (Italy) n° 281

- 1997 Accessory of the Year:

Solidsteel SS Stands

Audio Land (Hong Kong)

- 1997 Recommended Components, The

Best: Solidsteel SS-6 Stands

Modern Audio (Taiwan)

The other had years of experience working

for the renowned Italian motorcycle

company Ducati. Solidsteel tables therefore

reflect both an audiophile’s dedication and

a true expertise in metalworking.

Our products are now available in more

than 30 countries throughout Europe,

Australasia and the Americas.

The Solidsteel line offers a choice of audio

tables with four legs; horizontal A/V tables;

stands and bases for speakers and power

amplifiers; and also isolation accessories.

Our philosophy is that there should be no

compromise in the build quality or benefits

to sonic performance, and that the products

should reflect the Italian “style” of design:

use of excellent materials; clean lines; wellconsidered

utilisation of space; and

attention to detail.


Specifically

� The tubular frames used in the tables,

stands and bases are produced from

steel and finished in anti-resonant paint.

� We reinforce this frame by inserting a

crimped steel bar at the end of every

tube.

� All spurious mechanical energies are

discharged into the ground through

height-adjustable spikes - produced

from stainless steel - at the point where

the table legs contact the floor.

Excessive resonance is the enemy of

good sound and video.

� The spikes are removable to allow the

frame to be filled with sand, lead shot

or other similar types of damping

materials. This provides further

“solidity” to the sound.

� The final assembly of each table is done

by hand utilising a braze welding

technique. This method makes use of a

special brass solder with a high

concentration of nickel alloy, resulting in

a weld with an exceptional

strength/weight ratio. Simply compare

the quality of our welds to that of other

tables to immediately see the difference.

� To minimise resonances, every shelf is

supported on - and therefore isolated

from - the frame by three duraluminium

cones (or on polyurethane pads in the

case of the Series Three) which are

positioned to precisely discharge

unwanted energies into the chassis and

then, by design, into the ground.

Isolation through cones provides superb

acoustic neutrality and also offers a new

degree of flexibility: a user can, for

example, fill the small troughs into

which the cones are inserted with

silicone of different viscosities, thereby

changing the overall acoustic response

of the table and the electronics it

supports.

This view focuses on the extra reinforcements that help make the Series Six tables so structurally superior.

� All shelves (except those of the Series

Three tables) are produced from highdensity

MDF and have the considerable

thickness of 19 mm / 0.75 inch (or 30

mm / 1.2 inch on the models 6.3 and

6.4). The benefits of MDF include a

much higher damping factor and

superior rigidity over time.

� The shape of our cones is not just

beautiful; it has been specially designed

to achieve the maximum amount of

sonic benefits. We also offer the cones

as a separate option for those who

want to improve their existing method

of product support.

� The overall height of each table, and the

distance between each shelf, has been

carefully calculated to achieve an

optimum balance of acoustics and

aesthetics. But in the final analysis,

performance always takes precedence.


6.2/6.3

Audio Table

Black-Silver

The Models of the Serie Six are surely the most sophisticated Solidsteel tables

produced to date. Expressly developed for use with the highest-quality

electronics, their structural characteristics and dimensions make them

noteworthy even when compared to the other tables in our product line.

Large components fit easily onto

these tables, leaving room for

proper air circulation.

In fact, everything about the Serie

Six is “overbuilt” from the steel

frame, reinforced at the base; to the

30 mm / 1.2 inch thick MDF shelves

that are specially decoupled from

the frame; to the functionally

elegant spikes.

Four-legs tables, steel frame with

additional intrastructural reinforcements,

anti-resonant finish. Two/Three (6.2/6.3)

30 mm / 1.2 inch thick MDF shelves in

matte finish. Each shelf supported on

special duraluminium cones plus

decoupling screws. For electronics and

turntables.

6.2

The cones utilised with the Series Six

tables are produced from duraluminium

which has been

machined to

exceedingly high

tolerances, leaving

virtually no room for errors

in the finish or differences

from one piece to the next.

This design also anticipates the use of

audio equipment that may be

particularly heavy.

6.4

Audio Table

Black-Silver

Shown here is one of the three

decoupling screws inserted on the

underside of each shelf. After an

electronic component has been

positioned, this screw is turned until it

just contacts the underside of the shelf,

thus adding to the overall rigidity of the

system.

Four-leg table, steel frame with

additional intrastructural reinforcements,

anti-resonant finish. Four 30 mm / 1.2

inch-thick MDF shelves in matte finish.

Each shelf supported on special

duraluminium cones plus decoupling

screws. For electronics and turntables.


Audio Table 5.2

Black-Silver

Hi-fi and video enthusiasts

worldwide require tables that can

accommodate audio and A/V

components that are comparatively

tall, wide (accepting electronics with

19-inch front panels) and deep. In

response to this need, Solidsteel in

1998 have introduced the Series Five

line of tables. Every aspect of their

designs was taken into

consideration, even down to

rethinking the cone shape.

Large and sturdy without being

overwhelming, these tables have

universal application options.

And as an added benefit, the bottom

shelf of the Series Five tables can be

removed and a Model B base placed

inside the frame in its stead, thus

providing an integrated solution for

power amplifier isolation.

This new range will undoubtedly

become a reference for its

exceptional combination of technical

attributes and aesthetic balance.

H-5

Horizontal Table

Black-Silver

The H-5 table was designed specifically for high-end audio or audio/video

systems. Although it is ideal for A/V applications, like all of the other Solidsteel

models, those critical considerations for audio enthusiasts have also been

anticipated: because of its exceptional length and weight, the top shelf rests not

only on three cones but is also mechanically isolated and supported by special

decoupling devices located on its underside - just as on our flagship Series Six

tables; each shelf is constructed from MDF and is individually isolated on three

duraluminium cones.

Six-leg table, steel frame with antiresonant

finish. Five 19 mm / 0.85 inch

thick MDF shelves in matte finish. Each

shelf supported on special duraluminium

cones plus decoupling screws. For

electronic equipment, audio/video

products and turntables.


Horizontal Table

The H-6 table was designed specifically for audio/video applications , since the

special 3 legs structure allows the placement of a speaker – central channel –

just below the top shelf.

The top shelf will be then ideal for a traditional TV set or a plasma screen.

The metal structure is exactly like our flagship Serie Six, while the shelves are in

terms of thickness and finish like the Serie Five.

If the products to be accommodated are exceeding the H-6 capability, an ideal

solutions provided is e dedicated “Partner” table, whit exactly the same finish

and height.

H-6

Black-Silver

Three-leg table, steel frame with antiresonant

finish. Three 19 mm / 0.85 inch

thick MDF shelves in matte finish.

Each shelf supported on special

duraluminium cones plus decoupling

screws. For electronic equipment,

audio/video products and turntables.

H-3

Horizontal Table

Black

The H.3 is a horizontal table derived from the Series Three and is ideal for

Audio/Video systems as well for normal Hi-Fi use.

For the H.3 Solidsteel have utilised the same innovative decoupling system

developed for the Series Three: compliance-controlled - thanks to the use of a

high-precision steel sphere - polyurethane elements are positioned under each

shelf.

Six-leg table, steel frame with antiresonant

finish. Five shelves in black

matte finish, each decoupled from the

frame. For electronic equipment,

audio/video products and turntables.


SS-7

Stands for Bookshelf Loudspeakers

Black-Silver

It is of critical importance for the performance of monitor-type loudspeakers to

have them positioned at the correct height. Additionally, since this type of

speaker is often relatively light in weight compared to floor-standing units, it is

essential to maintain high stability and rigidity. And, as with all components,

proper decoupling must be considered.

The Solidsteel SS Series fulfills a longstanding need regarding the proper setup

and enjoyment of monitor speakers, and must in many ways be considered as

important as the units they support.

Three-leg speaker stand, fillable steel

frame with a crimped steel bar inserted,

with anti-resonant finish. MDF top plate

in black matte finish, supported and

isolated on precision ball bearings.

Height-adjustable, stainless steel spikes.

� The structure and

diameter of the three

vertical tubular supports are

identical to those found on

our flagship Series Six tables.

� The stainless steel spikes

are removable to allow the

frame to be filled with sand,

lead shot or other similar

types of damping materials.

� At those points where the

frame supports the top plate,

high-precision ball bearings

are utilised, providing an

exceedingly high level of

speaker isolation.

� This top plate is

interchangeable, ensuring a

high degree of optimisation

with the greatest number of

monitor loudspeakers.

� The SS stands are

supplied with “Blu-Tack”, a

sonically neutral material

used to properly affix the

speaker to the top plate.

SE-12

Stands for Surround Loudspeakers

Black

The SL and SE Series stands are refined and beautiful solutions for correct

placement of bookshelf loudspeakers. Each has a square base supporting two

elegant semi-oval pillars onto which the speaker platform is mounted.

Both series stands are fillable, and utilise a very clever system allowing them to

be leveled from the top of the base.

As home theatre systems become increasingly popular, customers need a method

to correctly place their rear-channel surround loudspeakers.

Solidsteel spoke to some leading designers in the field to determine the

optimum height for different home cinema systems’ posterior audio effects.

From these data the SE-12 stands were developed, clearly based on the design

of our SE serie.

A/B

Amplifier Bases

Black-Silver

In high-quality hi-fi systems, it is always a good idea to keep the power amp well

away from the preamp and source components. It is in fact preferable to have

one’s amp rest on an entirely different surface than the other equipment. With

this in mind, Solidsteel has thus developed the Model A and Model B, perhaps

the most advanced power amp tables ever built. Specifically designed for units

that weigh at least six (6) kilograms / 13 pounds, the Models A and B can

accommodate virtually every power amp currently available.

� The frames are constructed from steel and finished in black or silver antiresonant

paint.

� The legs can be fitted with height-adjustable stainless steel spikes.

� The shelves are produced from 19 mm- / 0.85 inch-thick MDF.

� Decoupling between the chassis and the shelf is achieved via constrainedlayer

damping: a special layer of resonance-deadening rubber is sandwiched

between two stiffer rubber discs; this three-section “shock absorber” is then

inserted between the shelf and the table’s legs.
