Racks Audio Design racks are made in Greece, designed by Mr. Vangelis Issichopoulos (Architect NTUA), are hand-crafted to a great extent, carefully matched and available in various sizes for audio and TV/Home Cinema purposes.
These are made of selected solid beech wood and reinforced metallic frames which are adjustable in various heights, by means of a perforated metal plate, in order to render the rack adaptable to any type and size of equipment.
Shelves are made of 20 mm thick MDF, veneered in natural beech and supported by 4 spikes per frame.
Alternatively, the rack is available with CORIAN shelves. CORIAN, a DuPont Company product, demonstrates a largely neutral character, an excellent handling of vibrations along with an immensely uniform sonic response. The 20 mm thick shelves will be finished in natural veneer, so as to remain identical to the standard version( it takes only 2 milliseconds to eliminate any vibration according the diagram)
The whole rack rests on 4 adjustable 3,5 cm aluminium cones. A 5- shelve rack weighs about 50 kgr (MDF version) and is intended to hold up to 200 kgr of equipment.
It should be noted that a 5-component rack could have less shelves if more space between components is desired; this fact is applicable to all Audio Design racks. Is such case, there must be adequate shelves available, in order for the customer to interest additional shelves, at a later time. Therefore, every order should include a corresponding quantity of frames and shelves.
