Custom Design's Milan Compact Hi-Fi stand is perfect for half-width components and is available in a range of beautiful hardwood finishes. It is particularly useful in smaller rooms where space is a premium or where a room’s layout can’t accommodate a full-size stand without feeling cluttered. This stand will make your half-width components look more impressive and provide a noticeable improvement in sound performance over simple low density MDF furniture.
The Milan series of stands is designed as furniture to house Hi-Fi components rather than be utilitarian posts and shelves storage solution. But while looks are important, these stands have a beneficial effect on sound quality and the modular design enables super-easy expansion and simple assembly. You can have as many shelves as you need and get the overall height of the stand to suit you.
The Shelf-unit side pieces are made of solid real Oak, real Walnut or real Ash hardwoods in a range of finishes including Oak, Walnut, Cherry, Mahogany, Natural, Satin Black and Satin White. The shelves are fully tempered Clear or Black glass with polished edges and a gentle front radius curve. The combination of Hardwood and rigid glass offers excellent acoustical properties. Glass is durable and easy to maintain. Each shelf-unit can support 55lbs/ 25kg.
Sound quality can be further improved by using Custom Design’s iRAPs (Isolation Resonance Absorption Platforms), which are available as an optional extra. The iRAPS are highly effective in isolating components from resonance within the equipment stand and absorbing resonance generated by the component itself. You can find more information about Custom Design iRAPs in the Isolation Accessories section.
The Milan Compact stand is particularly suitable for CD, streaming, and headphone-based Hi-Fi set-ups and is compatible with: Rega Brio, Apollo and DAC; Cyrus ONE, classic and XR series; Bell canto, Naim audio and other half-width hi-fi components.
