The OLYMPUS-V12 filters and rack architecture function together to mitigate vibration in the floor, the rack, the shelf and the component at the same time. Originally developed ground-up for turntables (the most vibration-sensitive component of the audio system) the precision of the design and engineering is so exact that it performs exceptionally with every component in the audio system.
The OLYMPUS-V12 comes in 2 versions; Standard and Luxury. The versions are priced according to their aesthetic treatment; performance characteristics and physical dimensions are the same for both versions, only the aesthetic differs. We call the Standard version, “MAXXUM on steroids” in that the aesthetic is identical to MAXXUM, but the size of the OLYMPUS framework is larger. The LUXURY version is extraordinary in that every edge of the framework is hand polished to a mirror finish. A technician holds each part against a high-speed buffer at least 3 separate times as the sandpaper grit is decreased until a mirror finish is achieved. The hand-polished metal edges are masked off for painting and paint is applied and then painted surfaces are wet sanded to a mirror finish. The processes involved are intricate, time-consuming, labour-intensive hand-work combining to net a breathtakingly beautiful result.
The ultimate in performance and aesthetic, the OLYMPUS-V12 allows the owner to create a statement in the listening room. Custom-made to order, sizing is very flexible for single components (amplifiers), vertical rack configurations, and side-by-side configurations for multi-component systems. Levelling is fully adjustable.
We use an oven-baked colour stabilization painting process for the horizontal framework, top caps, feet, legs and filters. As far as custom colours, we can match any automotive paint available in the United States. Let us know your colour preferences and we can make a recommendation.
