What you see is what you get. Well built, super pricey mdf. I seen a couple showroom models, they looked good and sturdy. Couldn't justify spending 2 g's on the Elba though. I ended up goin with bello, definitely not as we'll built.
We have the AV basics SAV2 and it's awesome. Only complaint is the black border of the glass doors, blocks IR signal, if you have a slim component, such as a DVD player and it's on the bottom shelf, then the IR signal will get blocked
I have two Salamander Synergy cabinets. Both are 31" tall. One is a double wide and the other is a triple wide. High quality materials are used and the cabinets are extremely sturdy. The look very nice. They are quite heavy to move after assembly and hold a lot of weight with no problem. I am pleased with them.
