The difference is that bamboo is much harder and requires less resin than MDF and therefore has less energy dampening or suck-out caused by resin/glues.
Correct, it has a nice stiffness versus weight ratio. In my experience it can sound more "neutral" then other popular types of wood.

I did read one thing that I cannot seem to find a second time that claimed bamboo shelves bend over time, so they may be strong and stiff but sag under load. Not sure this is true as I could not find it a second time.
It can bend when loaded, if it does it's advisable to use a thicker board. I have not noticed it bending over time, but that's assuming using the "plywood type". There is a waterproof version for outdoors use which is similar to MDF, bamboo pulp mixed with resin, that can definitely sag.

Some members say "The Daizas are addictive."
Yeah, it is. Very addictive.
Few days ago, borrowed a small piece for my Plixir LPS which is used by Lumin U1mini.
Another nice surprises. The sound becomes more lively, more details and the bass becomes more attractive.
Think of a standard size to put Lumin and Plixir together on it:cool:
They would actually perform better sitting on separate boards!

Emile,

You mean you can make a custom rack that is completely composed of Daizas? That would be interesting.
I have been wanting to do that for over a year but never got around to it. But it would also be quite an undertaking from a logistical point of view which we do not dare to take on right now ;)

You don't need a rack. You need that Engstrom amps Howie. ;)

While you do not design such rack, what would be your advice to DIY adventurous people? What materials should be used in a structure to support the Daiza platforms?
