Clean, modern design

The understated elegance of the Salamander Designs Transitional 7225 cabinet makes it an attractive addition to a room — while providing a roomy home for your large home theater system. The cabinet features a black satin finish with indented finger pulls on the doors, giving the piece a smooth, sleek appearance.

Room for 5-6 components

The sturdy cabinet top can support a TV up to 80” and weighing up to 150 lbs. The cabinet's open compartment is ideal for a center channel speaker, small sound bar, or component.

Both side compartments have an adjustable shelf, letting them each store two components. The bottom compartment provides room for an additional component. These compartments all have smoked glass-paneled doors. The glass hides your components, while allowing IR signals from your remote to pass through.

Made for A/V gear

The cabinet's back panels have openings for cables, making it easy to connect your components together while maintaining a clean, uncluttered look. Ventilation ports ensure air moves freely throughout the cabinet, keeping your components cool even with the doors closed.

Quality Piece of Furniture

Don from Erie, PA on 11/13/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This cabinet is a quality piece of furniture, I've never owned a better A/V stand. I was having trouble finding a cabinet that would hold my large Definitive Tech. center channel speaker and it fits perfect. I would give this model 10 stars if I could. The packaging that protected this cabinet was better than I've ever seen, not one scratch or ding anywhere, I'm very impressed. My son works in the wharehouse of a large furniture store and he couldn't believe how well protected the cabinet was. Be prepared to have 2 people to move this into your home and a dolly with moving pads is helpful.

Pros: Will handle a large center channel speaker as well as a large receiver.

Cons: None

Nice solid AV co sole. It's really 200lb so have friends around to unpack it and get it into place.



Solid piece of furniture

Jordan from Columbia, MD on 5/7/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Solid piece of furniture. Cabinet is well built, aesthetically pleasing, and incorporates the features expected to accommodate audio/video equipment. I do wish the lower center compartment was a cabinet with a fold down door instead of a pullout drawer, but I'm sure there are a few items like extra remotes and cables that I will fill it with. My only other gripe, is that there is not really a good place to store surge protectors inside the cabinet. It's not deep enough to store them behind the components and I didn't want to commandeer a shelf or have the cabinet not sit flush with the wall behind it, so I ran the plugs to black cable management boxes that I placed on each side of cabinet on the floor. Overall, given the alternatives I came across within my price range, I am very happy with the purchase. There was an issue with the color of one of my cabinet doors (it was black, but not a matching black), however Crutchfield handled the issue quickly and the manufacturer sent me a part replacement, which saved me from having to swap the entire item. I'm glad I bought the item from a reputable seller!



I wanted a BDI cabinet but....

STEVEN J from Irving, TX on 9/16/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I just graduated to a 70 inch TV and needed stand that would accommodate a larger TV. I loved all of the BDI cabinets but after moving into a new home I just couldn't justify spending that much money on TV cabinet. After receiving this cabinet I am not disappointed at all, its beautiful has a ton of space and has cut outs making running cables between components no problem. I'm not sure what they have done to the glass but none of my remotes have issues operating with the cabinet doors closed. If you're on the fence and looking at this cabinet pull the trigger it's a very high quality furniture piece at half the price of BDI. One more note this cabinet is very large, I'm just mentioning this because there is no white glove installation UPS will drop if off at your door and that's considered delivered, make sure you have a dolley and friend to move it.

Pros: Remotes work through glass doors, outstanding cable management


Makes other cabinets jealous

Jason from Selma, TX on 8/30/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Amazing product! Very well built! Comes completely put together(make sure you have help moving it). The frosted glass doors look awesome, and give it a great effect to be able to still control everything with remote. Anyone who has too many components should definitely consider this! I have a Definitive Technology CS-8080HD center channel and it fits perfectly and still sounds incredible. My receiver appreciates the vented bottom shelf for fresh air. The stand is so deep, when I put it up against the wall you can't even notice I didn't put on the included backing, or use the added wiring holes between compartments. Highly recommend!

Pros: Heavy Duty Sleek & Sexy Plenty of room


Quality Stand

Mark from Salt Lake City, UT on 6/27/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Salamander makes some beautiful furniture. My wife is happy with the look. Comes fully assembled.

Pros: Well built and no assembly needed. Nice air vents for equipment Soft close doors Nicely crated for shipment.

Cons: Center channel shelf has no rear venting. Does not work well for a rear ported center. I will cut in a couple matching holes that match the rest of the unit.

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

I liked the low profile, the all glass front for remote access to all of the components, the glass being smoked, and the cabinet being on legs. Relying on the good reviews. [ DAVID  Dec 31, 2018 ]
BDI is just too expensive and there arent many TV cabinets that are suitable for TV over 75 inches [ Steven  Sep 05, 2017 ]
Quality design and no assembly needed. It will fit my center speaker in the center shelf. [ Mark  Jun 14, 2017 ]
