    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?

    Positive Feedback Magazine Award Winner

    Positive Feedback magazine honored the Vulcan with a Writer's Choice Award for 2017. Lamenting the general lack of affordable racks and stands for budget-conscious audiophiles, Steve Lefkowicz notes that "Pangea Audio (sold through Audio Advisor) has taken up the void with a very nice and effective set of racks and stands at very reasonable prices."

    According to Steve's review in Positive Feedback, "I used two of these racks in my exhibit at the LA Audio… and they both played great even with the powerful bass of the big Tekton Double Impacts. I added an extra shelf to one and a taller 10-inch extension to one shelf for a total price of just $280 for both racks."

    "Absolutely Phenomenal"

    "The build quality is excellent," raves Joe in his GadgetryTech channel review for YouTube, September 2, 2020. "As far as the strength goes, each shelf supports up to 75 pounds, and the total weight support of this rack is 350 pounds, which is absolutely phenomenal for an open-frame rack, and at this price."

    "The modularity is a good selling point… Giving you the ability of customizing it completely is what really sets the Vulcan rack apart, because it's built extremely well, but then you get to customize it, and it's still affordable."

    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 75 lbs. per shelf and 300 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 extra shelves, various-height support tubes, storage drawers, casters, glide feet, LP storage shelves, and more.

    "I wanted something that was durable, looked good, was very easy to work with, and was flexible as far as running wires in the back and provided adequate ventilation."

    "This thing [the Vulcan five-shelf rack] is only $219 for a high-end audio rack… Even though the MDF [shelving] is vinyl-wrapped, it's scratch-resistant. It's actually better than some of the finished woods out there, because this vinyl is so tough. If you are moving a component back and forth, I would actually prefer this over a stained wood, because those are a lot more delicate."

    "This is a steel post construction that basically twists in. There is a threaded steel bolt that connects each post, and it clamps down. They have these little rubber isolation pads [between shelves]… and that's going to give you less transfer of vibration from shelf to shelf. The posts themselves are powder coated to be resonant-resistant and scratch-resistant, so, again, very durable. There's not really any ring at all whatsoever."

    "I really like that attention to detail as far as the durability and all that… It's really hard to find a high-quality audio rack that looks good and is in this price range."

    "The build quality is excellent… As far as the strength goes, each shelf supports up to 75 pounds, and the total weight support of this rack is 350 pounds, which is absolutely phenomenal for an open-frame rack, and at this price."

    "The modularity is a good selling point… Giving you the ability of customizing it completely is what really sets the Vulcan rack apart, because it's built extremely well, but then you get to customize it, and it's still affordable.
