Norstone Bergen 2 4 Shelf : Quality hifi rack at a great price.

Take your time putting it together as the shelves are individually isolated giving clearer sound quality. It does seem a bit strange stacking each shelf on top, but so long as you get the spikes seated correctly, it’s a great unit.

Quality hifi rack at a great price. . Just purchased this for a new hifi system having looked at the atacama stands as well as other makes. Having read the reviews of this on other sites i was surprised to see some negative comments on amazon from someone who doesn’t actually own this stand. I am not sure what they were reviewing or who had put it together, but their opinion of the stability of this stand is the complete opposite of my experience. Assembly is pretty simple – leave legs loose until positioned in the spike ‘cups’ of the shelf below and then tighten. Stability is absolutely fine when everything is tightened correctly. It looks good but best of all it has improved the sound from my set-up. I also have the amp and cd on bamboo boards which fit perfectly and add further to the sound quality. The price is also much less than the atacama stands of similar style and leaves more money to spend on vinyl.I also have a norstone khalm tv cabinet which is excellent.

Norstone Bergen 2 4 Shelf for Hi-Fi Systems – Glossy Black

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Spikes and counterspikes
  • Self-gripping strap
  • Easy assembly

Not sturdy enough, especially for playing records. I’m not in the habit of writing reviews about products i don’t own, but since many potential purchasers would not be able to see this product in person, i thought it would be useful to share some thoughts, based on thoroughly examining it (and several others) in a shop. First, it looks good (although i would argue not as good as in the photos) and realistically, will do the job of holding a hi-fi. However, i was surprised at how unstable it is, in that it sways at the slightest touch. This is far from ideal in a product that is supposedly designed with the purpose of reducing vibrations between components, the building, etc. In addition, the silver disks in which the spikes sit appeared very easily scratched. It is possible that the one i was looking at had suffered some abuse. However, i feel that a great product wouldn’t have degraded to this extent. Most importantly though–and the reason i’m writing this review–i would highly recommend seeing the product in person to check whether it satisfies your standards.

Excellent product at a keen price. Require some self-assembly but needs no tools. Fits together well and fulfils its function as described. Delivered earlier than estimated date.

Once assembled and everything lined up, spikes in cups and what have you, it’s ok, looks reasonably attractive, supports equipment adequately well. Sitting on a solid floor, it’s quite immune to footfall, but i can see it would be a pain on, for example, floorboards – it does wobble a bit if bumped. And if you’re a turntable owner, you do have to be a little creative about leveling the top shelf – i have used washers between the spikes and uprights, and a handful of shims under the feet of my rega. The better half tells me the glass shelves are ‘dust magnets’. Ho-humon the whole, does the job at a reasonable price.

Spikes on each shelf lie via gravity onto the next shelf layer and need to be positioned exact to be stable. Would rather have a solid one piece structure but some people might like this unique visual appearance?.

But very careful with thisyou have to make sure the legs are nice and tight but not over tight, and don’t overload the rear of the shelves. I moved this and one of the legs was slightly out of the seat and the whole thing collapsedbut lucky nothing brokei doubt i’d go for this design again, i’d much rather have a solid unit.

Easy to put together the weight of the shelves holds. Easy to put together the weight of the shelves holds all together however it will it come apart if you lean on the top shelf with your arm without any equipment on itnot easy to move with record deck and amplifier on but i like it and it looks good and well made.
