A8. What are the purposes for the 3 different heights of tier?

This is really up to the user’s preference on the rack customization.  There is no fixed rule on it.  As a recommendation, the Single Tier 12cm can be used as a standalone Amplifier platform and it is also the favourite tier for sandwiching the CD Players with front loading tray.  This prevents any airborne vibration from bombarding the chassis.  The 12cm tier can be as a standalone amplifier platform.

A9. Can I mix the Mavro, Diafanis and Dendron series of racks?

No, Mavro, Diafanis and Dendron series of HIFI rack have different dimension of slab in length and width.  The racks from different series are not interchangeable and stackable.

A10. Is there a rack design for AV Home Theater setup?   

We do not prefer dual or even triple column design into one common frame because the long slab regardless of material will flex eventually and it is more prone to vibration due to the high number of supporting points.  For the AV setup, we prefer either a 2 single-columns of Mavro/Diafanis or a 3-Tiers Cross-Stack as shown below.

A11. Do we need additional anti-vibration platform to sit on top each tier?

For mechanical equipments like turntable and CD Player that is sensitive to vibration, you could use additional platform on top of the slab.  As a recommendation, Cork, Sand-filled and Wooden type of platform will help to incline towards warmth sound.  Granite and Acrylic type of platform will induce a neutral sound.  Try to avoid glass and marble platform as it induces bright sound and oscillates at time.

A12. I need a standalone Amplifier Platform.

Use the Single Tier 12cm.  Due to the different height of the round spike plates as compared to strut joint, the distance from the floor to the bottom of the 12cm tier slab is 11cm instead of 12cm.

A13. Is warmth or neutral sound more preferable?  How to fine tune the sound of the equipments using the VARITITAN HIFI racks?

This is a subjective topic.  In general, people choose HIFI rack based on its aesthetic values and not based on sound characteristics.  However, we can use HIFI rack and additional platform to act as a sound tuning tool.  Typically equipments that produce warmth sound tend to be charming in character.  However, it is a form of coloration.  To bring the warmth sound towards neutral spectrum, we would recommend Diafanis series of acrylic HIFI Rack to bring in neutrality. 

As for neutral sound, this is commonly associated with high-end HIFI equipments because even it is neutral, its inner strength yield a beautiful sheen.  For this type of neutral sound equipments, you could use cork and wooden type of platform to tune it towards warmth side.  You could use Mavro series HIFI rack for equipments that are inclined towards warmth sounds. 

To add in more treble or details, spike the equipments on toes.

A15. How to do levelling if I do not have a levelling gauge?

There is a very useful feature in the modern smartphones that are equipped with gyroscopes.  It can also be utilized as a levelling gauge.  For Apple Iphone, activate the COMPASS icon.  After calibrating the compass, just swipe to the right to reveal the bubble level and use it to level your HIFI Rack.  Make sure you remove all phone casing and lie the phone flat on the center of the HIFI slab.

 

 

For Android smartphone, you could download any LEVEL TOOL free software from PLAY STORE.

Varititan provides complimentary bubble gauge for purchase of 4-tiers rack and above.

A20. Why the speaker stand is not 24 inches height?

The height of the speaker stand is taking reference from the speaker 's tweeter levels with the ears level at the sitting position.  Not sure which company started 24" and then simply everyone follows.   Varititan provides "Built-To-Spec" to customize your speakers to match your listening experience.
