Bamboo's values are well-known: it's extremely strong, grows unusually fast, and if fashioned into a bar, will seduce fascinated tourists into paying $19 for a Mai Tai. Now it apparently makes rad stereo equipment too, in the form of Audiowood's Bamboo Series.
Having previously cut stupid regular trees into all types of speaker-related equipment, the home-furnishing fabricators at Audiowood are just now dropping a whole series of bamboo'd goodness to take advantage of the strong grass's thin structure and easy cutability, which also explains its horrendous record in the boxing ring. Bambooliciousness includes:
iPad2 Perch This amber-colored base can be wall-mounted or stand freely, and has integrated, dual "horn" sound chambers, though these ones promise to be more palatable than the practice room for 7th grade jazz band.
Aerie Console At just over 6ft, this home theater unit includes three built-in speakers, two equipment bays, and hidden rear cavities to allow for "invisible cable management", or what Comcast calls "a business model".
Chirp Turntable With a natural finish, this belt-driven deck's constructed with Music Hall Audio parts and requires little setup to be immediately scratchable, but again, mind the finish.
If you aren't into tall hollow grasses,
you've probably had a bad experience with poison sumac and are just lashing out AW's also got a solid back-stock of standard timber pieces, including a turntable made from American hardwoods called The Bachelor -- ironically, a show that bamboo-zled women into thinking Brad is cool.
