Our Review


Salamander Designs has long been recognized for crafting high-end furniture that caters to the discerning audiophile and home theater enthusiast. The Elba 345 Audio Cabinet from their esteemed lineup is no exception. This piece is not just a housing for your audio equipment but a statement of luxury and functionality that aims to enhance any home theater setup.

Design and Build Quality

The Elba 345 boasts a modular design that allows for a high degree of customization, ensuring that it can adapt to the ever-changing landscape of home theater technology. Hand-built in the USA, the cabinet features a light American cherry finish that exudes warmth and sophistication. Its rock-solid extruded aluminum frame provides the foundational strength, while the stylish wood-framed doors with smoked glass inserts add a touch of modern elegance that can mesh well with various decor styles.

Features and Functionality

With room for up to 12 components, the Elba 345 is a powerhouse of storage. The adjustable shelves and spacious cabinet top, capable of supporting a TV up to 90 inches and weighing up to 350 lbs, offer versatility for any setup. Ventilation slots ensure that your valuable audio equipment stays cool, thereby extending its life and maintaining performance.

The integration of a smart cable management system keeps things neat and tidy, which is crucial in maintaining the sleek look of the cabinet. The C-frame aluminum chassis not only contributes to the strength of the structure but also to its flexibility, allowing for infinite vertical adjustment. This is particularly beneficial for those who are meticulous about the placement and organization of their audio-visual components.

Installation and Assembly

Though the weight of the Elba 345, at a substantial 340 lbs, may pose a challenge during the moving or installation process, the end result is a sturdy and stable home for your equipment. The assembly process is described as enjoyable, though it may require time and effort. Potential buyers should note the limitations on delivery service and the additional arrangements that might be needed, especially for locations with stairs.

Performance and User Experience

The Elba 345's design ensures that audio/video components are isolated from vibration, which is critical in preserving sound integrity. The open architecture not only aids in superior venting but also makes cable management more efficient. The wide center open compartment is a thoughtful inclusion for sound bar or center channel speaker enthusiasts, with a removable cloth grille that does not hinder audio performance.

Users will appreciate the advanced AV glass with IR signal transmission, which allows for the use of remote controls without having to open the cabinet doors. This feature is particularly useful for maintaining the sleek aesthetic of the setup while ensuring functionality is not compromised.

Pros and Cons

The Elba 345 shines with its high-quality construction, ample ventilation, and the sleek, modern design that will undoubtedly enhance the visual appeal of any audio setup. However, the significant effort required for assembly and customization may not be for everyone. Furthermore, the heavy weight may make it difficult to move once set up, and the Proposition 65 warning for California residents is something to consider.

Value and Market Comparison

When compared to other audio cabinets on the market, the Elba 345 stands out for its superior build quality, customization options, and ample storage space. Its price point reflects the premium nature of the product, positioning it as a high-end option for those who are serious about their home theater systems.

Final Thoughts

The Salamander Designs Elba 345 Audio Cabinet is an exceptional piece that offers much more than just storage for audio components. Its robust build, customizable design, and thoughtful features make it a commendable choice for anyone looking to invest in a premium audio cabinet that not only serves its purpose but also enhances the overall aesthetic of their home theater space.
