Salamander Designs A2/B Archetype

Crutchfield customer from Nacogdoches, TX on 12/6/2020

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Really happy with this - easy to put together and very sturdy once bolts are tightened. I took off a star because both shelves had a scratch on the edge that had to be touched up with a marker. Nothing major, but annoying for the price paid. The bottom shelf does not have to be at floor level, which was a big plus - I wanted to put a mini storage trunk at floor level with the bottom shelf above with my receiver, and turntable on top. Looks neat and tidy.

Pros: Adjustable shelf, can add additional shelf later, sturdy, minimalist design

Cons:

Got this in order to move my Denon 2400, Xbox One X and Nvidia shield into a very tight space in my home's prebuilt media shelving. Got the extra shelf, and the wheels. Assembly was quick and easy. Not sure the included leveller was that good, but I had my own. Components fit great in the shelf space, with room to spare on all sides. And it slides in and out of the space easily for any quick access requires for cabling.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I selected this product, along with an extra shelf and the drawer. The product is excellent; very sturdy; and the ability to adjust the shelf height to make maximum use of the available height is what attracted me. The instructions were only fair; some additional words along with the drawing would have been helpful. Assembly, however, was not otherwise difficult after I figured out what was missing from the instructions.

Fits perfectly for regular size units with 1or 2 components

Christopher from Bronx, NY on 6/6/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Worked perfectly for my small bedroom audio set up. Neat and clean and sturdy. Take your time setting it up. The leveler helps you to get there but the direction steps need to be followed carefully to get things level. Simple and sturdy design.

Pros: Room for adjusting the second shelf at the hieght you want and in relation to the top shelf you want space - wise.

Cons: Need to take your time to level evenly. Comes with level instrument. Simple set up - all you need is your hands and the one tool it comes with.

Solid, Sturdy Stand

Crutchfield customer from Cary, NC on 4/24/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Great product once assembled (which may take some time). The only issue I encountered was that three of the four threaded rods had bad ends. The threads where smashed or part of the metal end was not cleanly cut which made it impossible to screw on the bolts. I reached out to Crutchfield support and they quickly sent me a replacement set of rods. Three of those rods were good and allowed me to screw on the bolts and get everything setup. It is a sturdy stand and can be easily picked up and moved without worry of it being shaky or failing apart. I know most people won't be moving it around much, but I have had to try a few different locations in my listening room and because it is so study and well put together I did not feel the need to take the components on and off. each time. I also purchased an additional shelf which makes this rack even more flexible for my needs.

This is a great product. I used this to extend my A5/B Archetype stand with the stacking kit. Holds super heavy components like 100lb amps. Assembly is a breeze.

Pros: Great for a new stand or extending an existing Archetype stand.

Cons: None
