Svelte Speaker Set
"Svelte Speaker Sets" are sold as sets of 2, no Couplers; use under speakers with speaker spikes removed.
Although Svelte Shelf's most noticeable feature is its attractive, slim design (hence the name "Svelte," meaning slim or slender), the fact is, it's not just a shelf, but a sophisticated, anti-resonant platform for the support of high quality audio and video components.
Placed under CD Players, DVD players, amps, preamps, speakers and more, Symposium's Svelte Shelf will improve the performance of your system without changing its inherent tonal character.
Prior to its introduction, equivalent performance required much greater thickness and mass. The Svelte Shelf's design is simple, but effective. Now, even the most vertically-space-challenged rack or stand can benefit from Symposium vibration control.
The Svelte Shelf works well on most surfaces; it can be placed flat on an existing shelf or floor, or substituted for an existing shelf by ordering an exact size replacement.
Science and the Shelf
The Svelte Shelf is a tool for lessening the haze and imprecision which afflicts most "untreated" components. These artifacts are caused by vibration, and their severity can vary greatly from from component to component as well as from installation to installation. The Svelte works by draining vibration out of the component, while at the same time providing a less resonant surface for it to rest upon. Its design is a special modification of time-tested "sandwich" diaphragm technology used to advance the state of the art in loudspeaker performance.
Well, thanks very much for the very nice words- but it's not really magic!
Our products achieve their goals by reducing noise in the component, and the Svelte Shelf does this by obeying laws of physics. The Svelte Shelf's very rigid top and bottom layers vibrate more uniformly than less rigid materials, thus transferring more energy to the center section, where it can be dissipated as heat. And because the top is vibrating more uniformly, without "breakup" found in woods and other less rigid materials, there's less "blurring" of imaging and transient information.
Used correctly, the Svelte Shelf will improve the performance and accuracy of your audio or video system, with:
- Superior transient preservation
- More focus, with more precise imaging
- A quieter background with a lower noise floor
- Improved picture quality with video devices
- Better bass, with less distortion and "boom"
- Improved high frequency air, detail, and dynamics
- Better soundstage.
No colorations, please
Because of its constrained-layer design, the Svelte is non-resonant, so it will not add any colorations or other "flavorings" to the original material- pleasant, unpleasant, or otherwise. You'll hear more of the original performance, with all of its nuance, tonal color, and dynamics intact. Like most Symposium products, a Svelte is not used to "sweeten" or "soften" sound- but rather as a tool for the realization of a higher level of accurate sound reproduction.
Svelte Shelves are not designed or meant to "warm over" or "soften" sonic information, but rather to increase resolution, including important time domain information.
