  • New YG Acoustics Equipment Rack

    Click image for larger version  Name:	yG rack.jpg Views:	1 Size:	24.2 KB ID:	40544 Arvada, CO, U.S.A. For immediate release

    YG Acoustics™ (www.yg*, the leading ultra*high*end speaker manufacturer, is proud to introduce its first audio rack series: Rack 1.3, 1.4 and 1.6.

    YG Acoustics™’ Rack series was initially designed as a tool for internal use. The factory’s critical listening room needed a vibration *free, solid platform to allow equipment to play under optimal conditions. In a challenging environment, full of hostile vibration, other equipment racks couldn’t deliver the desired result.

    When designing Rack 1.3, 1.4 and 1.6, YG Acoustics™ adhered to its core values: straightforward, nonsense, precise science. The result is a rack series that isolates equipment from vibration extremely well. This is partly thanks to the fact that each shelf can be optimized in minutes for the weight of the specific component that it supports.

    A video that demonstrates the effectiveness of YG Acoustics™ Rack 1.3 can be found at

    YG Acoustics™ Rack 1.3, 1.4 and 1.6 – straightforward, no*nsense, precise science... handmade in U.S.A.
    Expansions and Upgrades
    As with YG Acoustics™’ world*famous speakers, Rack 1.3, 1.4 and 1.6 are modular. The construction allows for the addition of shelves, and for horizontal expansion, without the need to replace the existing Rack.

    Rack 1.3 * 3 shelves
    Rack 1.4 * 4 shelves
    Rack 1.6 * 6 shelves (3 high, 2 wide)

    Shelf space:

    Internal width * 60 cm (23.6”)
    Internal depth * open construction, limited mainly by desired outer dimensions Internal height * adjustable in 2.5 cm (1”) increments

    Uniform load limit:

    Bottom shelf * up to 97 kg (214 lbs) Top/middle shelf * up to 61 kg (135 lbs)

    Outer dimensions:

    Rack 1.3 * 59x65x54 cm (23x26x22”) HxWxD
    Rack 1.4 * 87x65x54 cm (35x26x22”) HxWxD
    Rack 1.6 * 59x127x54 cm (23x50x22”) HxWxD

    Net weight:

    Rack 1.3 * 51 kg (112 lbs)
    Rack 1.4 * 69 kg (152 lbs)

        I know, right? Rack prices have really gotten out of control in my opinion.

        You can get into an SRA or HRS rack with more shelf space for under $10k.

        I'd be curious to learn what Latvis or Tellekamp could tell us what the glass of water and coin-on-edge demonstrate.

        Not my preferred lines, but I can see its aesthetic appeal.

            I think you'd be surprised if saw what went into building one of Kevin's Craz racks. 😀 Half the wood is thrown away in the machining of each leg of the stand. Or the joints used in construction. His racks are furniture grade quality.

            I know. If I were swimming in cash I certainly would look at one of those.
