For

  • Easy to build, stylish, great sound

Against

  • Bit small for some kit
Custom Design racks are almost always small and perfectly formed, and the Tokyo 4 is no exception. Simple to build, and with a high-quality in both fit and finish, the Tokyo 4 looks the part, and lifting it won’t give you a hernia.
Give your music a firm foundation
It’s a fixed-width design, meaning there’s a lack of flexibility to kit placement, but the solid build more than makes up for that. Our reference kit sounds full-bodied and smoothly propulsive, lashed with detail, and well-balanced. 
To be honest, it’s a hard one to call between this and the Award-winning Hi-Fi Racks Podium, but the Tokyo 4’s fixed shelves are a limitation. So, despite 
its immense potential, this rack 
has to move into second place 
in this round-up.
