The "plyKraft" 4L is a rigid, high mass, low resonance audio rack that is fit to grace the most discerning audio systems. The "plyKraft" Series have been an exhausting three-year labor of love. We are confident that you will see and hear the benefits.
The new "plyKraft" platform is composed of domestic high density FSC & CARB certified Apple-Ply. The massive 2” Apple-Ply stock consists of 34 layers of hardwood laminates.
The construction of Apple-Ply lends itself beautifully to be the perfect building blocks for our new shelves. The exposed Apple-Ply edge is nearly void free and offers a refreshing design element that can be integrated into nearly any décor. As with previous designs, the shelves are milled in the center to create two hollow chambers accessible from the underside of the platform by removing the two brushed aluminum composite Di-Bond® panels. The chambers can be filled with your choice of damping materials. For a small up charge, Core Audio Designs can preload the chambers with our unique blend of materials to create a high mass, low resonance core. Listing price reflects preloaded cores.
Massive eight-quarter prime solid hardwood stock. milled to perfection with precision CNC routers. Dado joinery and threaded metal inserts are used to couple the uprights to the platforms. The dense hardwood uprights create the perfect mechanical diode to drain unwanted vibrations from the shelves to the ground.
Each component is carefully prepared to maintain its natural beauty with two coats of sealer followed by three coats of clear lacquer. We use Mohawk® professional grade oil based catalyzed lacquer to provide a durable and transparent finish to bring out truly the best in wood by defining grain and depth. We use no stains, dyes or toners in our finishing process. Hand-rubbed oil finishes require occasional oiling. Our catalyzed lacquer is nearly maintenance-free. A simple micro-fiber towel or feather duster is all that’s required.
