Then place that on a sound stage platform and you can have a phase four table. By this time you’ll be totally shell-shocked by the huge improvements to how your system performs. But with a high-quality system there will still be more chance to exploit. How? By including further stages to the support system. Just how far you can go before the upgrades stop coming and he’ll just enquire about how high your ceiling is!
The multi-level instillation depicted on this site belongs to one of our customers, reviewer, Michael Shepherd. At the moment his system uses Phase 7 supports beneath the turntable and CD machine, a hybrid four-tier stand under the pre-amplifier and a six-tier amplifier stand on five Sound Stages supporting his power amplifiers, supplies and crossover. His speakers stand on three sound bases. It’s a great array but still tells people that work is still progress. Even in a system such as this there is still room for improvement without compromising the system’s functionality. As we say to owners of similar systems, when you no longer have fingers to count the support levels on you just replace the reference tables with sound stages to maintain the highest components at a reasonable height. Only the system’s performance reaches the ceiling!
Before we talk about the stands in detail we’d like to reassure home cinema fans that supports aren’t just for people who are into sound. Putting a laser disc player or VCR on one of our stands will make its picture and audio quality much better. As we said before, we support, not discriminate: if it’s electronic or electro-mechanical, it’ll work much better on a table.
