  • Solid construction
  • lovely finish
  • decent support for images and sonics


  • Frightening price
  • hardness to sound
  • cheap feel of a few components

This Salamander TV rack does its job fairly well.

Images from a TV appear crisp and detailed, and sonically it serves up a wide, though slightly hard-edged sound.

Midrange and bass are well integrated, but it seems to encourage a treble that verges on strident.

In some ways this is a stylish and bold statement – and we applaud the extras (cooling fans: IR repeater) – but you're paying a notable style premium over a better support such as Hi Fi Racks' Podium.
