One Great Idea Leads to Another

As so often happens, one great idea leads to another. And that's the case with Pangea Audio's new Vulcan X-Brace Audio Rack. Here's what happened.  Two years ago, Pangea's Vulcan product designers were searching for a simple, affordable way to provide side support for LPs in their new Vulcan TT turntable stand. Various ideas were kicked around until one engineer proposed a simple steel cross member X-Brace idea. Everyone loved the idea, and soon prototypes were made. In testing, engineers found the X-Brace not only held vinyl records well, but it also increased the rigidity and lateral stability of the entire stand. Soon the Vulcan TT turntables stands were shipping by the thousands all over the world to wildly enthusiastic customer reviews.  While the Vulcan team was busy making and shipping the Vulcan TT stands, a Pangea product designer hatched another idea. "If putting X-Braces on one shelf improved the rack’s rigidity and lateral stability, what would happen if every shelf had X-Braces?" Several prototypes were created until finally, the engineers developed a version with extremely tight tolerances for each of the braces. This design finally provided the extreme rigidity the rack required. For added measure, the designers also increased the thickness of each individual shelf by 27% to 19mm (.75").

The Vulcan X-Brace Audio Rack is Born

Introducing Pangea Audio's new Vulcan X-Brace high-end audio component rack. This new rack preserves the outstanding qualities of the original Vulcan Audio Rack series, including modular design, interchangeable shelf location, and fast, friendly tool-less assembly. Additionally, the X-Brace offers increased strength and rigidity. It looks strong and sturdy, and it is! Shelves are rated for 90 lbs. load each and 360 lbs. total for the entire four-shelf rack.  The dimensions are the same as the original Vulcan Audio Rack: 32" high, 24" wide, and 18" deep.

Extremely Strong and Easily Expandable

The Vulcan X-Brace rack is beautifully engineered. Its design features steel support tubes and steel X-braces 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 X-Brace 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 X-Brace rack holds a system's worth of electronic components, boasting four generously sized 23.75" wide, 18" deep, and extra-thick 19mm-thick (.75") shelves. The dense MDF shelves are wrapped in a special vinyl material in satin black, rosenut, or carbon fiber 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.  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. The Vulcan X-Brace also comes with metal floor pucks to protect your floor finish.
