Custom Design Definitive Inert


  • Modern Design
  • Inert Shelves unlock greater dynamics & detail
  • Excellent Stability


The Definitive Inert is a brilliant stand, it looks modern and sleek, but the performance improvement it will deliver to your system is what makes it really special.

The aluminum shelves are acoustically inert, this has the effect of dramatically cleaning up bass response which in turn improves clarity, unlocking previously hidden details and expression in the music that were being masked by excessive energy getting back into the equipment.

The Definitive Inert is more than just an equipment stand, it will offer a genuine upgrade to system performance, moving forward if you Stillpoint each component on the stand if offers even more of an upgrade! Stillpoints are available for home demonstration so you can find out for yourself what they will do to the sound of your system!

The technology behind the Definitive Inert stand is unique to Custom Design, manufactured from exclusive, hand made and hand finished 6.5mm Acoustic Aluminium shelves.  The Acoustic Aluminium and Acoustic Steel are the pioneering, engineering approach that Custom Design has taken to absorbing unwanted resonance. Maximising isolation through resonance noise vibration absorption and enhanced sound performance, a serious improvement to the usual approach of hifi support stand design.

The system works on the principle of constrained layer dampening, which is two sheets of the same material, found to be the most efficient ratio, then bonded together with the patented polymer system. The polymers viscoelastic properties converts kinetic energy to heat, by preventing excessive resonance from effecting the performance of your equipment, enhancing the sound performance by providing clarity, improved separation and an inky blackness and control to the bass.

The 4 corner, satellite supports are available in Chrome, Brushed Chrome, Black, Mercury or White finish, and combine with the 6.5mm Acoustic Aluminium shelves to provide a light weight, acoustically inert hifi support table. The acoustic improvements are substantial compared with traditional manufacturing methods and materials. The acoustic aluminium shelves are Laser precision cut, hand made and hand finished.

Designed as a traditional hifi support table, the Definitive range have a visual as well as a sonic performance impact. The Definitive base platform provides a solid, rigid foundation with a unique 76mm ERW BS EN 10305-3 centre support column which can be massloaded to enhance performance. The extended footprint provides total stability with a custom service available for all sizes of hifi equipment.

The Definitive Inert provides a unique, acoustically inert platform for people who demand and require a more exciting, dynamic performance from their hifi furniture support table.

Priced at £700 for 3 shelves.

M8 Base isolation spikes zinc plated supplied as standard which can be replaced with Stillpoints (Ulta 5) for a serious upgrade in performance!
