Today, Pangea Audio announced the arrival of the Vulcan Parawood Four-Shelf Rack, a new version of their highly sought-after Vulcan audio rack. The new design features shelves of sustainable tropical hardwood with a clear semi-gloss finish, providing elegance and sturdiness. The wood they use is called Parawood, which Pangea touts as sustainable since the trees are widely planted all over Asia. That’s good if you care about that sort of thing, which we all should.
We reviewed the matte black version of the Vulcan Rack with the vinyl-wrapped MDF shelves, and we loved the sturdiness, along with the sleek look and affordability. It was also super easy to put together, which we also liked. This rack is a good value.
The Pangea Audio Vulcan Parawood Four-Shelf Audio Rack has an MSRP of $499.95, and since it has modular construction, you can purchase matching add-a-shelf kits ($169.95) to quickly increase rack space. This Rack will be available for purchase towards the end of the month, and for more info, see below or visit https://www.pangeaaudio.com/Pangea-Audio-Vulcan-Parawood-Rack.

Vulcan Hardwood Parawood Four-Shelf Rack is Rugged and Strong,
Thanks to Sustainable Hardwood Shelves
Replenishable Parawood Brings an Elegant Aesthetic to Vulcan Audio Furniture
GRAND RAPIDS, MI, August 2, 2022 – Pangea Audio, a developer and manufacturer of high performance, high-value audio accessories, today announced the arrival of a new Vulcan Parawood four-shelf equipment rack that takes advantage of the solid and unshakably rugged characteristics of the light-colored, sustainable hardwood material.
Parawood is produced from the Para rubber tree, known for a solid, compacted structure that lasts for decades. It is much tougher than other timber like pine, which means it is much less likely to scratch.
“Natural Parawood offers a wide range of benefits, from its overall stability, density, and its beautiful woodgrain finish,” said Steve Niemi, Director of Global Sales, Pangea Audio, LLC. “In addition, Para trees are planted in vast quantities throughout southeast Asia, ensuring a steady and abundant supply of Parawood for years to come.”
The Pangea Audio Vulcan Parawood four-shelf audio rack (MSRP: $499.95) continues the tradition of the Vulcan series of attractive, well-built audio furniture, featuring four shelves of ample storage space that maintain the original model’s ultra-stable, low-vibration characteristics. Parawood shelves are 0.8″-thick, with a durable hand-polished finish and elegant satin silver-finish steel support tubes.
With space for up to four components, the Vulcan four-shelf Parawood rack, which measures 32″ H x 24″ W x 18″ D, is a strong, stable platform for even the most sensitive turntables. Like all Vulcan products, the rack can be reconfigured as needed to best suit the user’s needs.
Steel support tubes are scratch- and resonance-resistant. Innovative cone point feet and spikes are included for easy transfer and leveling.
Optional Add-on Shelf
A matching Parawood add-a-shelf kit (MSRP: $169.95) is available to audio enthusiasts who need an additional shelf or two for equipment and accessories. The kit includes one (1) extra shelf and four (4) 7.25” satin silver posts. Users can add up to two (2) additional shelves to the rack.
Added Mr. Niemi: “As a company that is committed to supporting an eco-friendly work environment and lifestyle, the Parawood rack exemplifies our focus on sourcing replenishable materials that are best-in-class without diminishing natural resources.”
