WHAT MAKES A GREAT CABINET

Entertainment center cabinets are essentially the control center for your media room's AV components. At Salamander, we don't build our custom AV cabinets to just house and support your television—but everything that comes with it. Every facet that goes into our attractive AV cabinet design serves a significant purpose. From vibration dampening construction and cabinet ventilation to cable management and storage options, we offer you the durability you want with the functionality you need.  

ROOM & DECOR

Whether your space is contemporary or traditional, small or spacious, must meet simple or complex esthetic and technical demands, Salamander’s advanced, flexible solutions more than measure up.


  • PERSONAL STYLE

    Your furniture helps to define your space. You may prefer a sleek contemporary look or possibly something more traditional. Perhaps you want something in between. There is nothing better than having choices when it comes to finding the perfect furniture to match your decor.

  • CABINET CONFIGURATION

    The size and shape of your AV furniture is dependent on many factors. How many components? Do you plan to integrate speakers or support a TV? Do you want the equipment visible or hidden? Where will you store media and personal electronics? Understanding these requirements will guide the cabinet selection process.

  • MOBILITY AND FOOTING

    Some users would like to fine tune cabinet height, personalize the look, or add mobility.

      THE SALAMANDER DIFFERENCE

       

      Salamander's highly flexible and customizable furniture solutions are intended to provide a huge number of choices in styles, sizes, configurations, finishes and performance options. Our multi-functional storage offerings enhance every space, while addressing specific needs.  


    FURNITURE FUNCTION

    It’s not just furniture, it’s furniture engineered to satisfy.  Our products are designed to perform and integrate seamlessly with today’s electronics.

    • TV PLACEMENT

      For many installations users would like to be able to mount a TV without needing to hire professional contractors for mounting and electrical work. For others, it is not possible to drill mounting holes in walls. 

    • SURROUND SOUND

      Audio quality is essential to the entertainment experience and placement of the front speakers is critical to achieving proper surround sound. 

    • HOUSING A/V COMPONENTS

      Electronic components vary widely. High-end electronic components are typically deeper and heavier than standard components. Professional Audio gear is usually rack-mounted and requires an industry compliant cabinet frame to support the components. 

    • STORAGE AND FUNCTION

      Storage is always an important facet when it comes to properly stowing electronics and media. A multi-functional cabinet is a great all-in-one piece—perfect for organization. Having a designated storage area for pull-out turntables and media storage, as well as a charging station for portable electronics, tablets, laptops, game controllers and remotes is invaluable.

    • CABINET VENTILATION

      Electronics such as high-power, multi-channel amplifiers and always-on components like DVR recorders generate a lot of heat. Heat is the enemy of electronics and will diminish performance and shorten service life. It is important to have breathing room for components.

       

      Active cooling system may be necessary to keep equipment running at an optimal temperature.

       

       

    • REMOTE CONTROL USE

      Most users would prefer to control electronics remotely without needing to open cabinet doors.

    • CABLE MANAGEMENT

      One of the most important requirements in any cabinet is cable management. It is essential to have access to the rear of components for installation and servicing. Equally important is wire routing within the cabinet and external ports.

    • RESONANCE CONTROL

      Audiophiles appreciate a stable foundation to support electronic components. Combining different materials in a high mass structure is the most effective way of controlling performance-robbing resonance, because each material transits/absorbs only certain frequencies.  

    • MODULARITY

      Your furniture is an investment. That is why it is important to have the ability to reconfigure your furniture as your needs— and technology change.
