Atomic Audio Labs “Mac Platform” 17
With the huge success of the Mac Platform Atomic Audio Labs has developed larger versions for laptop and audio components. These are superior isolation device specifically designed for the the size of the computer or component. You’ll be surprised how much the Atomic Audio Labs Isolation Platform adds to the sound quality.
This special sonic platform is precision machined on CNC machines to exacting standards so in most cases dimensions mirror that of its computer or component.
We experienced a clearer and a more coherent mid-range. The highs appear to extend with improved clarity and a smooth sweetness. There is now a better sense of time and space around the instruments with the Atomic Audio Labs Mac Platform. The music has a deeper, wider soundstage, with a more focused image.
(Laptop NOT included)
17" Wide X 16" Deep
I was definitely surprised when I heard the top octaves of my system "open up", with seemingly more frequency extension and "air" without the harshness or tizz one might expect. (There must be a measurable difference here... I could even hear it from the next room.) On recordings with which I am intimately familiar, the change (a very positive one) was unmistakable. This was not a "needs a double-blind test" kind of difference, it was completely apparent in a few seconds of listening. The build quality of the platform is exemplary. CNC machining produces an exact fit-match to the Mac Mini. The platform sits on three high-quality spikes (under which I placed a small piece of MDF left-over shelving to protect the glass shelf top). I know that there are other folks here using the Mac Mini as their digital music server, and I would highly recommend that they check out the Atomic Audio Labs Mac Platform. For $299, it made a substantial difference in sound, a difference that I have paid much more for in other system changes over the years. Very nice product!
