Strong, Stable, Rigid Vulcan Audio Rack
Pangea Audio's Vulcan™ audio rack is so strong, stable, and rigid, that Pangea named it after the Roman god of fire, who was famous for his metal forging expertise. And as another famous Vulcan might well say, the Vulcan audio rack makes a "most logical" enhancement to your music system.
Not only is the Vulcan audio rack strong, it's also expandable. The ingenious design lets you add or subtract shelves as needed, and it's jammed full of audiophile features that help coax the best performance from your AV gear. What more could you ask for? How about Vulcan's unexpectedly low price?
Super Strong and Easily Expandable
Vulcan is beautifully engineered. Its design features steel support tubes connected by threaded rods, creating a super strong and ultra-rigid rack you can assemble in minutes without the need to dip into your toolbox.
You can conveniently add or remove shelves for as many as six shelves in all as your equipment needs change. One user said about the design that adding shelves was as easy as changing a light bulb. Just flip the Vulcan upside down to add shelves from the bottom.
Most self-assembly racks aren't very rigid. Thanks to the unique design of the Vulcan, it is extremely stable and strong in addition to being acoustically neutral.
Holds a System's Worth of Components
The Vulcan rack holds a system's worth of electronic components, boasting four generously sized 23.75" wide, 18" deep, and 0.625"-thick shelves. The dense MDF shelves are wrapped in a special vinyl material in satin black, rosenut, or mocha finish that is very easy to clean and resists scratching, scuffing, and most liquids. The front and sides of the shelves are contoured for a streamlined look.
Vulcan supports up to 44 lbs. per shelf and 176 lbs. total capacity per rack. The height between shelves is 8.75" above the lower shelf and 7.25" between the top shelves. The width between shelf supports is 19.4".
Open-Air Design is Best for Your Gear
The open-air design is best for your electronics. The design maximizes component ventilation and makes it easy to install or remove gear. The four steel support tubes feature scratch-resistant and resonance-resistant black sand powder coat paint.
Innovative Cone Point Feet and Spike Design
Vulcan features innovatively designed cone point feet and spikes. The steel floor spikes go all the way through the cones and into the bottom shelf tubes for greater strength and better energy transfer from the rack into the floor. The tapered cones are made of a very durable polymer, which dampens vibrations between the steel floor spikes and the steel rack tubes.
Options include an Add-A-Shelf Kit with 7" supports, extended-height 10" support tubes for tall gear, and a matching Vulcan Amp Floor Stand.

This is my second purchase of a Vulcan rack. Assembly was fast and easy. The second time around I was finished in under 20 minutes - including disposing of the carton in the recycle bin. This rack requires no tools in the assembly - just a knife to open the packages. You don't even need a screwdriver or a wrench. The rack is the perfect size to fit all my electronics gear in my second system - receiver, dvd/vhs player, cable box and a small tv on top. You don't have to pay a lot for this one, but you get a great piece of audio furniture anyway.

|Solid and Highly recommended|
Rock solid piece of furniture at a very reasonable price. Install is ridiculously simple with terrific instructions. The all metal legs and the solid shelves makes for a classic rack that will stand the test of time. Very functional for several applications besides just audio/video gear. I have two of them sitting side by side. Highly recommended.

Good quality construction and easy to assemble. The shelves are thick and solid and easily support all my high-end components. Good packaging. The rack arrived without any damage. Assembly took about 20 minutes. Rack is rock solid.

This is a beautiful audio stand. The espresso-wrapped shelves are beautiful and matches perfectly espresso amp stand which I also purchased. It was very well packaged for shipment and arrived with no damage to any of the parts. It took me all of around 30 minutes to assemble. It was very easy to level and sturdy and supports Rotel/Oppo/Class A gear. I think the key to assembling this stand is to evenly tighten the parts together. I am very pleased with this stand and feel you would not go wrong in purchasing it.

|Easy, Quick and Perfect|
This rack was so easy and quick to put together that my kids helped me. I wanted a sturdy unobtrusive audio stand and it fits the bill. The shelves are well spaced to dissipate the heat from devices as well as and other "stuff". Its very sturdy. I had no hesitation putting my 60-pound Bryston amp on the bottom shelf. Very happy all around.

After receiving the package I was impressed by how well packed everything was inside. All the metal tubes and shelves are secured in corrugated sleeves and dividers. The tubes and shelf finishes were flawless. After I started putting it together I realized I could rearrange the shelves in any order I wanted. I put the larger 9" shelf just below the top to give more ventilation to my DAC which runs kind of warm. Bottom spikes are heavy duty and they made it easy to level the rack for my turntable. I put the Sonic Saucers underneath the rack to protect my oak floor. I just ordered another shelf as a storage place for power supplies, headphones, etc. Its a very good design with lots of flexibility for me.

found this rack on amazon. after reading the reviews I thought what the heck, for that kind of money it's worth a try. I'm really pleased with it. very well made and looks great. I ordered the 10in. posts for more air flow with my tube amp; but I'll be getting the matching amp stand soon

Excellent product. Order without hesitation.

Great audio shelf! Fit all of my equipment nicely. I purchased the spike discs for hardwood floors, and an additional shelf for added height and atorage. The total measurement is 39" 1/2 with the added shelf Wich is perfect for my height. Very sturdy even though it's MDF. I would have liked the tubes to have had a rubber spacers on each side rather than just the bottom but it isn't a big deal. Great shelf overall.
Excellent audio rack and really fast shipping! Looks beautiful.

|Nice And Solid|
Nice and very solid!!! Bought this rack for my vintage audio gear. Wish I could post a picture here because it really looks great. Opted for the additional shelf and 10" post. Five stars!!!!

|Look No Further|
If you're looking for a rock-solid audio shelf, look no farther. The interconnecting steel support tubes lock the unit together, and combined with the over-all weight, provides a solid and sturdy platform for all of your audio gear. Looks great, too! I was concerned about the MDF shelves when I ordered the unit, but they're hard as nails and can take quite a bit of weight more than your components probably weigh. I'll definitely buy the shelf kit or another full unit as I expand my equipment. Great job, Pangea!

|Good Turntable Isolation|
I had problems with acoustic feedback to my turntable. Moving my components to this stand seemed to make a tremendous difference. Plus, it looks great!

|DON'T WAIT!!! GET ONE!!!!|
I was on the fence, on the fence, on the fence........then when I got an email saying the black was sold out, I jumped and bought the espresso!!! WHY DID I WAIT????? This is a truly BEAUTIFUL audio rack, and a snap to put together. It was originally going to be for my bedroom, but I liked the look so much I placed it in my living room. And SO MUCH BETTER IT LOOKS!!!! GET ONE!!! You won't be sorry!!!! I'm still in awe of the BEYOND GREAT price!!!!
|Easy to Recommend|
Ridiculously easy to recommend. Great price. Fast delivery. Received it in New Jersey in two days. Great packaging. Went together in minutes. Looks great. My VPI/VTL/Pass/PS Audio systems fits great. A good find.

|Wow - And Double Wow!|
My reaction to the Pangea Vulcan Rack? Wow and double wow! These remind me of the classic audio racks that no one makes any more, but Pangea makes them, and these are stronger and better than anything else I’ve found.

|Solid As A Rock|
I bought this to show off my tube amp not expecting it to be this beautiful and well constructed. I mean, this rack is super strong, it was easy to put together, and a big plus is being able to add a couple more shelves. Steady, solid-as-a-rock.
|- Gunnar S, IN|
Great buy. Great rack. Exceptional value for the money. How does Pangea do it when other companies charge so much more for way, way less?

|What A Great Find|
I usually read the audio advisor catalog from cover to cover and dream about what I see, but I usually buy my audio gear used. This time I couldn't resist and I ordered a new rack. I'm very impressed with the construction for the low price. I like the open design. Let's me show off my audio gear. Can't think of anything I don't like about it.

|Best Rack Out There?|
I'm sorry, but is there another rack deal as good as this one? I searched around and wound up ordering the Vulcan rack in espresso finish for less than a hundred bucks - including shipping! The rack comes in a compact, heavy box. Must weigh 40lbs. But don't worry, its extremely well packed. It's even double-boxed. There's no styrofoam in the box, which I like. Mine went together in under 20 minutes. It's rock solid and has plenty of room for my Oppo-Parasound-ProJect-Furman gear. So back to my original question. Is there a better rack deal out there?
|- Chuck C, KS|
Got two of them because one cannot hold all my components. Well worth it!! Using extra shelves for other things. Sturdy, wide and well built. Way better than the one I got rid of not going to mention still sold by AA...
