An "audio board" is a device that can be installed under audio equipment to enhance sound quality.
Even those who are particular about the speakers and amplifiers in the main unit tend to neglect this audio board.
Please consider purchasing an audio board to further improve sound quality.
What is an audio board?
Audio boards absorb the sound vibrations of audio equipment and maximize the expression of the equipment's original sound.
Depending on the material, there is some compatibility with the sound, but it has the effect of bringing out the original sound of the equipment.
Design as an interior design feature is also important, and we recommend that you choose the best material, design (size), and price.
Select by Material
Audio boards come in a wide variety of materials, including wood, marble, granite, and a combination of materials.
Since tone quality varies depending on the material, choose one based on your preferred sound and visual design.
WoodCherry and hickory are commonly used as woods for audio boards. They are characterized by high sound vibration absorption due to the moderate hardness of the wood.
Therefore, wooden audio boards are suitable for bass sound and have a soft appearance.

Marble and granite are the major types of stone materials. Since stone is harder and heavier than wood, it suppresses sound vibration and noise more, and accentuates the tone of the mid-range while tightening the low range. They also give a sense of luxury that is different from that of wood.
Metal audio boards are thin but absorb vibrations well. Even though it is thin, the material used is heavy, so it absorbs vibrations well.
It also has a compact appearance due to its lack of height. However, it should be noted that metal may resonate in some combinations.
Combination of multiple materials
The materials handled differ depending on the object. There are audio boards that combine wood and metal, and even those that use buoyancy by combining magnets.

Select by Thickness and Weight
Although it depends on the material, it is said that the thicker the base is, the higher the absorption rate of sound vibration and the clearer the sound will be.
In addition, heavier audio boards are said to be more stable and to have better tonal resonance, but care should be taken because too much weight may deform the installation point.
Although they may appear light in appearance alone, in fact, even the lightest ones can weigh as much as 2 kg, and some of the heaviest ones can weigh more than 10 kg.
In addition, audio racks that combine audio boards can improve sound quality while neatly housing multiple devices.
Some materials are thin but have high performance, so please enjoy your audio life with the design, size, and material of your choice.

List of Audio Racks
Audio bases are used by many enthusiasts in combination with audio boards. There are various types for amplifiers, players, and speakers, and since the material is more point-fixed than audio boards, it leads to a sharper, more extended sound with clearer contours. Most of the materials are hard, mainly ceramic, metal, and hard woods like ebony.
