Quality piece of furniture, built well and heavy as heck to bring down a hill on a hand truck! Good looks and well packaged to prevent damage.
Pros: Price, ventilation grilles, looks

I purchased the Salamander SDAV2-7224 several years ago and it has been an amazing AV console for the better part of almost 7 years. I didn't buy mine from Crutchfield bc I don't believe they carried this stand at the time but got mine locally. I had been eyeing it for several months but didn't want to spend the asking price on a entertainment console. But then my local big box retailer had it on sale, I had to get it at that point. Now that I own it I'd gladly pay the full retail price for it based on the quality of it. This thing is a heavy duty beast and designed for AV gear. It has air ventilation slats so hot air won't get trapped when the doors are closed as well as cable management openings to route cables from one side to the other without having the wires exposed. If you remove the back sliding boards from the amp I have, it just lifts right out of their tracks, you can easily fit the 19" deep amps in there. The front glass doors can be closed and my remote controls can still access my components inside the cabinet. Top marks across the board on this tv console stand and I highly recommend if you're on the fence.
Pros: High quality Designed for av gear

I purchased the Salamander SDAV2 7224 AV cabinet. Wow I am impressed. The cabinet is very well made and to the highest quality. The shelf pins screw into threaded inserts. The doors are on hinges for opening and closing. They are not cheap hinges either. It arrived in a fullu padded box. After I unpacked it, all I had to do was insert the shelves and attach the 3 handles. The back has 3 sliding panels so you can access from behind. The doors were aligned as well and the cabinet was level. I did not have to adjust at all. Note: Check the depth of your receiver. I have a Yamaha A2070. It sticks out the back some. But thats ok. Next, I want to mention Salamanders Customer Service. I emailed them asking for the stain color so I could purchase for touch-ups if needed. I received an email from "Joe" who asked for my address so he could send me a touch-up kit free of charge. This is a beautiful piece of furniture.
Pros: Highest Quality, solidly made, no cheap parts, excellent Customer Service
Cons: None as of this review

Modern, good looking, long TV/Entertainment stand shipped free via UPS (delivery man extremely helpful). Fully assembled and reasonably priced compared to other units costing over 2K.
Pros: Excellent packaging from Salamander to include particle board panels to protect glass doors. As always, great customer service and price from Crutchfield.
Cons: Top back border of stand (6 feet) is loose not flush with small gap causing a couple of tears/breaks (1-2 inches) in the veneer. Not real wood very heavy.
