In 2008, with eight years in the Italian fashion industry already under his belt, Mr. Lorenzo Belloli, (the founder of Bassocontinuo) applied his design sensibility, taking on the challenge of manufacturing audio component stands, where he felt there were no good looking and good sounding options. A decade later, there are five lines within the Bassocontinuo range, each with subsets of available products and options. Used exclusively at the World of McIntosh townhouse, the striking design of these products captivates with stainless steel support pillars and contrasting metal or hand-stitched colored leather coverings. In fact, every design feature is customizable to your taste.
And yet, Bassocontinuo products are more than just fancy design and exotic materials. The elements come together beautifully, adding up to demonstrable performance enhancement. Each stand is tested, with printed results showing the reduction in vibration (included in the packaging). This results in a more focused and clearly delineated sound stage, with more precise sound quality.
Ranging in price from $1,380 – $16,000 and beyond, there is a piece of Italian designed audio furniture for nearly any system, limited only by your imagination. All products are entirely designed, conceived and manufactured in Italy.
From Tone Audio Review, February 2018:
"What's Italian, made of carbon fiber, wrapped in hand stitched leather, offered in a variety of colors and finishes and downright sexy to boot? A Ferrari 488GTB? A Lamborghini Hurican? Yes, and yes. So are the new EOS 2.0 amplifier stands by Bassocontinuo, the Italian manufacturer of custom audio racks and amplifier stands. While this may seem like a stretch of a comparison, it's really not. Upon close examination of the fabrication, fit, finish and the refined design of the fully customizable Bassocontinuo EOS 2.0 amplifier stands, you will see far more in common with the prancing horse and charging bull's approach than not."
