Ascensio II/III/IV/V

A 2, 3, 4, or 5 shelf audio rack made from the finest domestic and exotic hardwoods.

My father has been into audio his entire life. Until recently, I never took on his interest, as I've been occupied with handcrafting high-end wood furniture for local and international clients for the past years. One evening though, he suggested I look into making audio racks for his clients. He keyed me in on the importance of resonances, damping and why isolating gear to avoid unwanted micro-noise is so essential. I said I'd look into it, but as my background is mostly in contemporary and modern furniture, I wasn't sure what would come of this. However, after much design work and a few prototypes, I came up with the Ascensio. Named so, because it may well be my ascent into the world of audio. In a word, it's simply solid. And that's what I love about it. Of all the prototype designs, this one moves the least, and holds the most. It's a beautifully uncomplicated design, made to hold several hundred pounds on each shelf.

The Ascensio is available in a variety of wood species, and a couple well-chosen finishes. I'm also able to acquire certain exotic or figured woods, on a case-by-case basis, so please contact me directly if you're looking for something special.          
The standard Ascensio rack consists of 
- shelves 20" wide by 20" deep (usable space)
- ebonized maple uprights
- blackened steel bolts

Upon purchasing, please specify
- shelf heights

Optional customizations include  - 40" or 60" wide shelves
- various wood species for uprights
- threaded inserts for spiked feet

Each order is signed and dated, and ships free anywhere within the continental U.S. 
The Ascensio starts at $1,600, with further pricing listed on my website. (See below) 
Everything that comes out of my shop is touched only by me. I consider it the best quality control, and I've always wanted to keep it that way. If you have any questions about my process, the Ascensio, or a custom order, please feel free to get in touch.
