Here's a review from Stereophile via the Bright Star Audio website:

Stereophile BRIGHT STAR ISOLATION SYSTEM

The Rack of Gibraltar is an open equipment stand whose rigidity and strength outclass the competition. From my brief encounter with Barry Kohan at CES, he came off as serious, with a flair for tackling technical issues without compromise.

Significant sonic gains were in soundstaging and dynamic range and contribute to a dramatically heightened acceptance of the illusion of live music. Being able to penetrate to the inner recesses of the soundstage places the mind a step closer to the gestalt of live music. The Isolation System reduced the veiling, or screen of fog, that interferes with the spontaneity of reproduced music. It removed the "lid" from "canned" music to the extent that I could gaze into the hall through a cleaner window. Once I was transported into the hall I could delineate the decay portion of musical transients much more clearly. It was as if the noise floor of the reproduction chain had been lowered. Hall ambience was resolved to the point that I seemed to be peering into the soundstage through a higher-powered telescope. Spatial outlines were more incisively focused. The same sort of heightened resolution extended to dynamic shadings.

The ebb and flow of musical phrases packed a bigger dramatic punch. The crucial range from soft to moderately loud bloomed with greater conviction. I felt closer to the source, to the fountainhead of the music's essence. From the sweep of a large orchestra to the intimacy of a solo instrument recorded up close, the music sounded cleaner, more expressive, and more solidly grounded in a 3-D perspective.

Final Thoughts - My experience with Bright Star's Rack of Gibraltar and the Total Isolation System strongly argues that to elicit the full sonic potential from most audio gear requires proper isolation and resonance control.

The Bright Star system can be seen as an environmentally safe haven for audio equipment, a place where insidious external and internal vibrational energy is safely dissipated. I can no longer tolerate the thought of using most of my gear outside of the Bright Star isolation niche. Do yourself a favor; pamper your equipment. You'll be glad you did. - Dick Olsher
