Salamander Designs Synergy Model 236

The Model 236 cabinet has plenty of room to store your gear and your media (TV and components not included)

Made for A/V gear

The sturdy cabinet top can support a TV up to 70” and weighing up to 300 lbs. The doors have perforated metal panels that allow IR signals from your remote to pass through, as well as air to ventilate your gear. They also effectively hide the gear behind them. The doors feature hinges that extend so you can fully open each door.

The cabinet's central open compartment is ideal for a center channel speaker, small sound bar, or component. Underneath is a media drawer to help keep your library organized. It has enough room for up to 102 CDs or 52 DVDs, so you'll always have your favorites at hand.

Modular options

The Model 236 can be assembled a number of ways. You can install the doors onto the side compartments, or leave them off entirely. You can place the Model 236 on the floor, or remove the non-marking feet and mount the unit on the wall.

The Model 236 comes with three adjustable shelves. You can place two in one compartment, or just use one in each. The supports slide along the aluminum frame, making the shelves infinitely adjustable.

Good for the environment and the country

Salamander Designs uses only hardwoods harvested from managed forestry programs. Their frames are made from recycled aluminum, with environmentally-friendly coatings and stains. And each Model 236 is built in the USA.

Product Research


Synergy Series AV stand: The Salamander Designs Synergy series SB236C/B is a low and wide AV stand with an open top-shelf, an open center-channel shelf, two enclosed shelf compartments, and a media drawer; so it will hold plenty of your components and accommodate a TV up to 75".

Real Wood & MDF Construction: The Synergy series AV stand's top shelf & bottom base are 1-1/8" thick and consist of real wood veneers over an MDF core with a real wood lumber edge. The Doors are made of solid hardwood. These woods are a select grade of American hardwood and finished for durability and low maintenance.

Note: Wood being a natural product is prone to different grain patterns which can lead to slight variations in color and shade.

Anodized Aluminum Posts: At the heart of the Synergy series AV stand are unique square-shaped extruded aluminum support posts. Theses posts are used simultaneously as an external cabinet skeleton for supporting top, bottom, side, and back panels; as well as an internal skeleton for supporting shelves and drawers (sold separately).

Audiophile-Grade: The Salamander Designs Synergy series AV stand is designed with the Audiophile in mind. It is constructed of dissimilar materials which reduce transmission of performance robbing resonance. This will provide ample component isolation to enhance the sound quality of the system.

Solid Wood Door Frames w/ Perforated Steel Inserts: The Synergy series AV stand features solid wood door frames with perforated steel inserts. The perforated door panels permit IR signals to passthrough, add ventilation, and hide your components. The snap-on hinges fully extend and are removable for better in-cabinet access. The doors can be hung so they swing to the left or right.

Open & Enclosed Shelving: The Salamander Designs Synergy series SB236C/B AV stand features a top shelf, adjustable open shelf, two fixed bottom shelves, and two adjustable middle shelves.

  • Top Shelf: The top shelf measures 65.75" (w) x 21" (h) and 19.75" (d). It can support up to a 75" flat-panel TV that weighs up to 350 lbs.
  • Open Shelf: The open shelf measures 19.75" (w) x 8.5" (h) x 18" (d). Its designed to hold your center-channel or soundbar speaker, but can also be used for AV components and other gear. It will support up to 75 lbs. The open shelf is adjustable and can be positioned anywhere in the center of the stand in relation to the fixed bottom shelf, top shelf, and the pull-out media drawer.
  • Enclosed Shelving: On the left and right front of the AV stand are two enclosed compartments, hidden behind two hardwood frame doors with perforated steel inserts. Each compartment consists of a fixed bottom shelf and an infinite adjustable middle shelf. Each compartment space measures 19.75" (w) x 17.75" (h) x 18" (d). Each shelf can hold up to 75 lbs.

Pull-Out Media Drawer: The pull-out media drawer keeps your CD, DVD, Blu-ray, and Game collection hidden, but still within reach. The pull-out drawer features a solid wood face, while precision ball-bearing glides assure smooth operation. The pull-out drawer can hold up to 102 CDs or 52 DVDs. The drawer can positioned anywhere in the center of the stand in relation to the fixed bottom shelf, top shelf, and adjustable open shelf.

Removable Back Panels: Removable back panels permit fast, easy access to components and wiring. Wires can be easily hidden with the use of the rear panel by allowing cables to pass over and under them. There is approximately 1" of space between each shelf and the back panels, permitting wires and cables to pass-through.

Leveling Feet: The Salamander Designs Synergy series SB236C/B is fitted with heavy-duty, non-marking, leveling feet.

Optional Accessories: Optional accessories enhance functionality and add greater design flexibility. Choose from Casters, Adjustable Shelves, Pull-Out Shelves, Universal Storage Trays, Media Trays, and/or Accent Lightning (all sold separately).

Built-In The USA + Lifetime Warranty: All of the Salamander Designs Synergy series cabinets are hand-built in the USA and come with a limited lifetime warranty.

Dimensions of that middle open compartment?
jairo  Oct 19, 2021

So since all shelving is adjustable in height. The shelf above the pull out drawer is adjustable as well. This would be helpful if there was something you wanted to store in the drawer that is taller than the drawer. In my case the shelf is set close to the drawer height. My dimensions for the open area is H 8-3/8 x W 19 5/8 x D 19 5/8. Hope this helps. I have really enjoyed the quality, fit & finish as well as the functionality. GL.
hector  Oct 20, 2021
Each compartment is 18.5 wide and 17.5 tall. The drawer comes in its own box, and I put it in a closet. Didn't need it. That's the great thing about the synergy system, you can configure it anyway you want. I just didn't need a drawer. And my center is in a hole that it fits perfectly. And my wires are behind metal backs out of sight. How its configured is up to the owner
billy s  Oct 19, 2021
Front opening is 8" H x 19 5/8" W, depth is 17.5" I backed into its size based on the other compartments, my center channel doesn't quite fit, the vertical bars take a little more width than I'd allowed for. My center is in it just doesn't come forward to be flush with the front edge. It's a good piece otherwise.

Would an infra red remote work through the doors of this cabinet?
ernest  Apr 24, 2019

Indeed it will! The perforated metal panels on the front allow IR signals to pass through!
thomas  May 03, 2019 (Staff)
Description states up to 70" TVs. Would there be a danger a using a 75" TV or is it just not visually appealing?
tim  Jan 12, 2018
1 answer
I have a 75" Samsung on this stand and it works very well and looks good. The width of the stand is 66.75" and the TV is 66.3"

Will the perforated door pass Bluetooth?
threej  Jun 26, 2021
2 answers
They should, yes. I can connect to Bluetooth from several rooms away. I believe a Bluetooth signal is more like a radio or wi-fi signal. The mesh doors can sometimes affect an infrared signal from a remote control that needs more direct line-of-sight, but it should not affect a Bluetooth signal.

Blutooth, Ir, and so on.
