Salamander By the Numbers: 80 Durometer

Archetype neoprene gasketsThe neoprene gaskets we use in our Archetype audio and amplifier stands are 80 durometer hardness. Neoprene, a man-made rubber, is available in soft to firm hardness. We tested several varieties to find the perfect balance of structural strength and vibration damping, because we’re as obsessed with audio as the most ardent audiophiles are. And that obsession drives us to design and build the best AV furniture available…stylish furniture¬† engineered to enhance the performance of your electronics.

Audiophiles will love Archetype, an innovative, infinitely adjustable modular shelving system that’s available in three attractive hardwoods (Cherry, Maple, Walnut) or Matte Black Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) panel.
