Greetings, lovers of Hi-Fi and vinyl!
When we asked designer Alexandre Dubreuil to come up with a modular storage system for vinyl record collections, we weren’t sure what we’d get.
Dubreuil blew us away with his creation, a system with two different stackable modules, each with an internal height of 32cm (12″) that’s perfect for holding our precious LPs. The modules stack as easily as LEGO bricks and can be adapted to fit any space and to meet the needs of any Hi-Fi stereo setup.
DICE's look was inspired by modern architecture. It is made of 100% pure concrete, nothing more. Or so it might seem.
But our designer went one step further and took on the sworn enemy of audiophiles everywhere: unwanted vibrations!
The anti-vibration combination
Concrete is already pretty good at reducing unwanted vibrations. It’s rigid, dense, and heavy. Marble has similar properties. But at Lyon Béton, concrete is our specialty.
To create a gap between modules and between each module and the floor, Alexandre Dubreuil added rubber connectors that stabilize the units and, above all, absorb unwanted vibrations.
Then, rubber connectors stabilize the units and, above all, absorb unwanted vibrations by decoupling the furniture and the floor and also each concrete module.
We’ve struck a good balance between “hard” and “soft,” which greatly improves the acoustics of any Hi-Fi stereo system.
Our heavy modular storage system is well adapted to lighter turntables, like those by REGA, that require a stable surface to limit certain vibrations.
Purists paying close attention will point out that turntables should be kept apart from amplifiers to limit vibrations. They’re right. It’s just that our Artistic Director’s Beosystem 5500 is so photogenic when it’s all stacked up 🙂
With only 2 or 3 modules, you can create a unique furnishing system that houses your Hi-Fi equipment, your turntable, and more than 200 records.
Let's talk about storage
The large module is 69 cm (27″) across, wide enough to house a high-quality amplifier, while leaving enough room to keep the unit from overheating and to give you easy access to its back panel.
Each module has an internal height of 32 cm (12″), just tall enough to accommodate your Hi-Fi components and perfect for organizing your vinyl records. Each module can hold more than 200 LPs.
The square module has an internal width of 32 cm. You can store a hundred vinyl records per module.
If you have a collection the size of Cut Chemist's, you might not be ready yet for a full concrete makeover. Not to worry. Our designer's got your back.
Our concrete modules can be combined with other furnishings and shelving made from different materials, like glass and wood, thanks to the "half-connectors".
The best-looking (and best-sounding) concrete Hi-Fi storage system
Thanks to its sleek and architecturally inspired design, our vinyl record and Hi-Fi stereo storage solution has an exceptionally high WAF, which is rare when it comes to furniture specifically meant for your sound system.
