The Mac Platform was specifically designed for those who use the 2010 and newer Mac Mini for high fidelity audio. The Mac Mini is very sensitive to vibration and, believe it or not, that affects its sonic performance.
After countless hours of listening to different configurations and materials Atomic Audio settled on our current platform. Their listening tests confirmed that the bass was tighter, and seems to extend lower, with 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 Mac Platform. The music has a deeper, wider soundstage, with a more focused image.
Atomic Audio Labs isolation platforms are made with the finest available materials and the highest quality precision CNC milling processes.
The cylinder wells are filled with specially blended sizes of lead shot with the appropriate weight as to absorb the proper amount unwanted vibration. They chose to use a specific type of cast acrylic because of its energy absorbing properties. Listening tests confirmed that coupling the Mac Platform to the surface on which it sits upon also yielded a noticeable improvement so there are machined three strategically placed threaded spots on the acrylic as to thread in the included chrome plated brass spikes.
