The Akorner XL brings a new dimension to our name of hi-fi racks by combining our trademark quality and design and excellent acoustic performance in to a corner-fitting unit. Designed and individually handmade in our workshop, this rack features the same sturdy construction and high tensile strength as the Podium XL with its 40mm thick solid hardwood plinths and 46mm² legs
Each tier is made from solid 40mm hardwood staves, providing stiffness and stability, adding to the rack's density as well as absorbing vibration. Each board is bonded concave to convex to add to the board’s rigidity. This rack comes with 46mm² solid hardwood legs which are removable and can be made to any length, allowing it to fit around your system and give adequate space for heat dispersion. The back of the rack is tapered to allow the rack to sit in a corner.
The Akorner XL features modular design, allowing you to upgrade by adding extra plinths or changing your leg lengths as your system grows and changes.
The Akorner XL forms part of our bespoke range. One of the key advantages of this hi-fi rack is that it can be made to depth and width or height, so you can have the rack made to the exact millimetre of your specifications enabling it to fit your equipment and environment perfectly. We don’t charge a premium for a bespoke size, just the cubic millimetre cost in line with our standard sizes.

Please check internal measurements of rack and external measurements of equipment to ensure the correct fit for your set-up.

When selecting the appropriate leg height for your rack; this is the clearance between the two plinths including the spike. Please note that this does not include the thickness of the plinths (40mm). Any leg length is available at no extra cost, enabling you to specify the exact length to meet your requirements.
Base leg (floor to first plinth) heights with no spike can be a minimum height of 50mm. A minimum height with a spike is 65mm. Any leg above the height of 300mm we recommend being bolted for stability.
Please allow adequate space above your HiFi equipment for heat ventilation and check your manufacturers manual for recommendations on effective heat dispersal. Without adequate space this can cause significant damage to both your component and rack.
If you own a valve amp, or any other particularly hot component, we highly recommend this component is placed onto a standalone tier or placed on the top tier and not placed on an internal shelf to ensure no damage occurs.
Any component that doesn’t have adequate space and causes damage to the rack will not be liable for replacing. Please see FAQ’s for more information.
This offers a tidy storage solution for your vinyl records. When selecting this addition, one of the tiers will be allocated to create this offering, incorporating two extra legs on each side with a rear crossbar for support. This can be made to fit any width and depth. Please note that if you select this option one of the tiers will be allocated to the LP pack. You may wish to add an additional tier for this option if you require the other tiers to fit your equipment.
This offers a neat solution for all of your cables presented at the rear of the rack, manufactured from 22mm thickness wood which will attach to the back of the rack to minimise the cluttered look of messy cables. Please select this when configuring your rack as we cannot add cable management retrospectively.
The Akorner XL offers the option to have a TV bracket located at the rear of the rack. This options needs to be selected at the time of purchase and unfortunately cannot be added once you have received the rack. All specifications for the TV that will be going on the TV bracket will be required to ensure this is manufactured to suit the model.
Castors are a 65mm high wheel. The castors replace the base legs and are drilled directly into the plinth, we do recommend that the tier above the castors is to be bolted for stability reasons. Interchangeable legs with castors are available upon request. Castors must be added at the time of purchase, these cannot be added at a later date.
Isolation plinths are available in 22mm or 40mm thickness. If selecting an isolation plinth, this will default to 22mm but can be upgraded to 40mm by contacting our team at firstname.lastname@example.org or 01572756447. Our 22mm isolation plinths are manufactured from solid oak, so if you have chosen one of our more exotic woods for your rack, please note that the isolation plinth will be a close, but not exact, match in colour with a stain used on the oak. The 40mm isolation plinths will be manufactured from your choice of exotic wood and will match your selected option.
