RE: "Is MDF a worthy upgrade"? ...

Real wood.....and don't forget that TECHNICALLY.....Balsa is also a hardwood, is a Natural Composit.

Various densitites in the wood have distributed resonant modes.

Some other materials may be better than the stock (cheap) MDF.

I'd look into PlyBoo.....Bamboo Plywood. Extremely dense in the Neopoltian. comes in 4' x 6; sheets and is kind of $$$

I've heard suggestions for Corian and Silstone. Both synthetics.

I'd AVOID both MDF which is available in several different densities AND excess bracing in the form of bridgework.

Clever design triumphs over brute force EVERY time.

Image shows a proposal for triangulated and ADJUSTIBLE bracing in a Phi ratio mounting.....This is not my final design but shows how my thoughts progressed....
Too much is never enough
