Pangea Audio Vulcan Parawood Audio Rack

Strong, stable rack with beautiful solid hardwood shelves.

If you love the distinctive grain and finish of genuine hardwood, then Pangea Audio designed its gorgeous new Parawood rack just for you. It features the same strong, stable, and rigid construction that's made the Pangea Audio Vulcan™ Audio Component Rack a bestseller. Then it adds luxurious 0.8"-thick solid Parawood hardwood shelves with a durable hand-polished finish and elegant silver-finish steel support tubes.

The Parawood Rack is the latest version of the Pangea Audio Vulcan Audio Component Rack, which debuted in 2014 to fantastic customer reviews. Audio fans love the sleek look, excellent stability, ease of toolless assembly, and amazing modularity. The rack can be configured and then easily reconfigured with additional shelves and accessories – including LP storage shelves, storage drawers, casters, glide feet, and more.

The Search for a Sustainable Hardwood

After the original black finish was such a big hit, Pangea expanded its shelf finishes to include two vinyl hardwood finishes – rosenut and espresso – and then high-tech-looking carbon fiber vinyl. For Vulcan rack customers who expressed a craving for a natural wood finish, the Pangea design team began searching for a wood that was beautiful, readily available, and sustainably harvested.

Out of dozens of wood samples Pangea received during fifteen months of research, one stood out from all the rest. The sample was labeled "Parawood," and it was gorgeous. In addition to its marvelous grain pattern, its density was perfect for an attractive butcher block-style construction. Best of all, it was readily available.

Pangea learned Parawood was readily available because Para trees had been planted in vast quantities throughout southeast Asia, where the sap was used to produce natural rubber. After twenty-five years or so, these trees stopped producing large quantities of sap, so they were harvested and replaced by new trees. This process produced a steady and abundant supply of harvested Parawood.

Strong, Stable, Rigid Design

Pangea Audio's Vulcan Audio Component 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?

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 Parawood rack holds a system's worth of electronic components, boasting four generously sized 23.75" wide, 18" deep, and 0.8"-thick solid Parawood shelves. The Parawood sustainable tropical hardwood shelves are assembled in an attractive butcher block-style construction that emphasizes the beauty of the wood grain, then the shelves receive a durable, hand-polished clear semi-gloss finish. The front and sides of the shelves are contoured for a streamlined look.

Vulcan supports up to 85 lbs. per shelf and 340 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.
