Harmonic Resolution Systems – history
HRS was founded by Engineer Michael Latvis. For more than 40 years, Michael developed vibration and resonance isolating systems for military applications and the aviation industry, among others. With six patents, he has fully specialized in suppressing and isolating mechanical vibration, shock and resonance during his career. In 1999, he decided to link that experience to his greatest passion and started Harmonic Resolution Systems, which he grew into the world’s most respected manufacturer of vibration isolating components for audio products.
the sound of silence
Almost every electronic component is sensitive to vibrations. Mechanical vibration of coils or capacitors, for example, translates into minute voltage variations and unwanted electrical signals. The electrical term is microphonic effect, HRS aptly summarizes this as noise. Our audio products, in which signal processing is carried out at the cutting edge, are particularly sensitive to these vibrations. They obscure and smear the micro-detail of the music signal. Mechanical vibrations reach the components in our audio circuits mainly through the housing. HRS is therefore fully committed to isolating and/or dissipating vibrations by minimizing panel resonance and eliminating vibration from the subsurface. What is special is that the HRS systems are adaptive. Chassis made of sheet steel or solid milled aluminum, draining energy or insulating, disconnecting a piece of furniture or high-end audio rack, HRS always has a product that fits optimally. That ends with the ultimate high-end audio racks for the absolute purist, but starts with very accessible, interesting add-ons that, when used correctly, can have a huge impact on the sound.
Below we describe the Nimbus Isolation Feet, the DPX Damping Plates and the Isolation Bases. Insulating elements that once heard should not be missing from any system.
