Super-nice and highly desirable Salamander Synergy Twin 30 in cherry veneer and black posts. Mine looks like all the other ones online but it's configured as described below. I couldn't find an exact photo online, so a line drawing of the accurate configuration is included below (though mine has two extra shelves).

This is a used piece. It is in very good condition, but stands tend to get bumped around so I want to be as clear as possible about what you're looking at.

The system comprises legs and shelves (and all applicable hardware — it's easy to put together in about an hour if you're deliberate and careful). My price includes two extra black interior shelves (retail $64 each), for a total of six. Those shelves are infinitely adjustable up and down. You can fit another two components each on top and bottom shelves, for a total of 10 components. (Obviously I don't know what you have, so if your turntable is 30" wide, or you need 24" clearance above a tube amp, that may affect things.)

There are no sides, no doors, no drawers. The stand is designed to be modular, so it's fully functional without them. Those and many other additional pieces are available from Salamander or their dealers if you choose to add them.

The black shelves have normal wear and tear, including some minor scratching. If you're an optimist, they're an 8; if you're a pessimist they're a 6. I'm a realist so I think they're a 7. :) Unless you are unusually sensitive to these things, you won't notice them once your system is set up.

There are two identical, large cherry-veneered boards that comprise the top and bottom. These are obviously the most important pieces cosmetically, so I'm providing high-resolution photos for you to see, via Dropbox (see URL below). You can blow them up for more detail.

I took four photos of each board, two halves of the top and two halves of the bottom, for a total of eight photos. The files are named thus:

Board 1A-1 — Board 1, Side A, top half
Board 1A-2 — Board 1, Side A, bottom half
Board 1B-1 — Board 1, Side B, top half
Board 2B-2 — Board 2, Side B, bottom half

I guess it should really be "left" and "right" halves, but they were standing up when I took the shots. I try to be a very honest seller, so here's what I can tell you:

As you can see, the B side of each board is very clean. I believe that was the bottom when it was assembled.

There is a slight nick almost dead-center on Board 1, side A. It's pretty small and not very visible in real life — but I tried to highlight it. If you cover it with a component you won't see it at all.

The other side of Board 1 has some scratching where the legs attach — they are worst on the bottom half (1B). I'm pretty sure that was the bottom board of the rack. It's hard to avoid those marks completely, but the legs will mostly obscure them once installed.

The biggest scratch, by far, is on 2A-1, and 2A-2 also shows it. It will be clear to you. If you make sure it's on the bottom of a shelf, you won't see it at all.

There are a handful of surface scratches that proved difficult to photograph. As I said, it's a used piece, but I take pretty good care of stuff and I never misrepresent something intentionally.

Here's a link to the photos online: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/o2nogpu9g6bdyhk/AAAeruu-RRNOiR5eL0_vyWUIa?dl=0

I would certainly prefer local pickup in or near the Maryland suburbs of Washington, DC. However, I have the two original boxes in good shape and can ship. Each box weighs about 90 lbs and measures approximately 25 x 48 x 4 inches. No need to ask me for shipping cost to Missoula or Montpelier — you can use those dimensions and my originating zip of 20814 to figure the cost using your preferred shipper. I won't charge for packing and delivery to a shipper.

I have feedback at Audiogon under "pbraverman," and at eBay under "phantomtides." I have also bought and sold photography equipment, and I'm "phantomtides" at fredmiranda.com as well.

If you look at my feedback and decide to save a few dollars, I will accept a Paypal "Friends and Family" payment and you can deduct 3% of the purchase price. Otherwise, it's regular Paypal and I'll eat the fees, as all sellers should. I am much more inclined to negotiate price with people who are direct and quick on the trigger. We're all busy — let's not waste each other's time, okay?

This is a really nice piece and I hope somebody gets to enjoy it!
