The unit is beautiful and the design for the center speaker and components are near perfect. BUT, the delivery was not what I expected from Crutchfield. The unit came on a large pallet and was not unpacked and carried into the house. I had to pay movers $180 to move into the living room. I realize it was a direct manufacturer ship but I look to Crutchfield for having oversight of the entire customer experience.

Pros: Excellent design for components Beautiful look and finish

Cons: Delivery and the added cost to unpack and move into the house.

Couldn't be happier

We are so happy with our TV console. Delivery was just as advertised and we received it yesterday. We were worried there was going to be damage, but the packaging was excellent. It is quite heavy so we needed help to get it into the house. We went from a huge entertainment center and wanted more of a streamline look.The problem we found when looking for a new console, was the shelving wasn't deep enough to hold our older sound equipment. Everything fits perfectly! It is a heavy piece of furniture, and looks great holding our new 75" TV. Couldn't be happier. First time ordering furniture online and what a pleasant experience!

Salamander entertainment stand

Jim from Kingston, NY on 3/4/2019

As others have already stated, this is a solidly built piece of furniture. It easily supports and compliments my 75 inch Samsung TV. Plenty of storage for A/V equipment and my Polk center channel speaker fit perfectly in the center compartment. The manufacturer did a great job of packing the unit for shipment and the delivery by UPS freight was also top-notch. Crutchfield hits another homerun.

Pros: Well built, great design and nice finish. Great value for the price.

Cons: None

Very well built and sturdy. Top center shelf is perfect size for my center channel speaker. Looks great and holds all my equipment. Only down side is it's heavy but that goes with the sturdy construction.

salamander makes great cabinets for av equipment and the sdav5 7225 is a perfect example. this is my second salamander designs tv stand and they continue to impress. i have my two def tech 1000 bookshelves and a 43 inch tv on the top and it's perfect. the stand is six feet wide has open vents on the bottom shelves to let the components breath and comes with two more adjustable shelves. sliding back panels let you hook everything up then hide it all. the middle shelf holds my matching center channel and there is a storage drawer with a glass front that holds cds/dvds or another component. the cabinet is big and heavy and very well built. crutchfield as always was awesome to deal with. the stand came 5 business days after i ordered it wrapped in plastic on a huge pallet in a box. oh yeah it was delivered to my door for free too. thanks crutchfield!

Pros: very well built, vents on bottom shelf, deep enough cabinet to hold components like a 40 pound receiver, storage drawer

Cons: non what so ever

Excellent Quality

I am extremely happy with this purchase! I was skeptical of purchasing this online without seeing it in person first, but Crutchfield is great to work with and I knew I'd be able to return it if something was wrong. It showed up on time and was packed extremely well. You will DEFINITELY need someone to help you move it because not only is the furniture heavy, the box itself probably adds another 40-50 pounds with packing material. The piece came fully assembled with the exception of the shelves. It is incredibly solid, and a very nice looking piece of furniture, unlike a lot of other stuff that's out there. As someone else noted, there is a lot of ugly AV furniture out there and thankfully this is not one. All of my AV equipment fit perfectly. It could potentially use another inch of depth for wires coming off the back of a receiver. Also, it would be nice to be able to remove the drawer and make it another area for components. Those are really the only two minor issues I have with this piece of furniture. I am extremely happy with my purchase and the entire transaction with Crutchfield!

Pros: Quality construction / Sturdy Air vents in the bottom of the cabinet Cable management Aesthetics

Cons: An additional inch of depth Ability to take out the drawer to use area for another component

Very Nice!

This is a really nice piece of furniture! All our components fit (one of them just barely for the depth). Lots of attention to detail. The box arrived very beat up but it was packed so well that there was zero damage. Middle legs came already attached which was nice since it is very heavy.

I love this more than my previous salamander Hampton 319. Such a well put together product. Beautiful walnut. Slightly retro appearance. Highly functional. Love it. Delivery was smooth. I would do it again.

My situation. Married and wife is sick of my old (2004), beat up, non wife friendly design geeky techno Salamander Synergy vertical rack. I also have a woodshop and my wife is always bugging me to make a TV stand. Quite honestly I had no interest in building one - design is not as easy as you think and furniture grade plywood isn't cheap either. So, we made a compromise and I was allowed to buy one, but with a budget. We looked at so many in person and online and there is really no end to the level of cheapness and/or ugliness out there in AV furniture. The Salamander AV Basics really caught my eye, but we were unsure what it really looks like in person. Of course it is medium-density fiber board with veneer, but that can go either way in terms of looks. I called Crutchfield and had a nice conversation with an advisor. Asking someone on the phone if you think you and your wife would like the look of something is not exactly fair, but he was very helpful and convinced me the AV basics were pretty nice looking and well made. So, I took the chance and ordered it. I'll get into things here, but here is one thing you have to know. This thing is fully assembled and the box weighs 216 pounds! It is a beast. That I received free shipping blows my mind, but I'm sure there is a mark up in there. UPS had to call to make sure I was home for delivery. I thought the poor UPS guy was going to have a stroke and a heart attack, but he was nice and helped me get it up on our porch and in the house. But tha

Pros: Aesthetics, size, cable management

Cons: HEAVY! could use 1" more in depth, drawer interior a little chincy (and would be nice to have the option to make that a space for another component)
