Perfect solution
Wanted an unobtrusive rack to hold some AV components. The Salamander shelving was perfect for my application. It sits on a Spanish tiled floor that has natural irregularities. The nut and bolt shelf mounting design allows all four feet to be firmly on the floor and with some minor adjustments ensure that each shelf is perfectly level. It is a simple and cleverly designed piece of furniture—modern and simultaneously invisible, showcasing the system components. Very pleased with this unit.

Are casters available for these units? Also, is this available with deeper shelves? 16' depth is rather shallow for many audio components.

  Thanks for your inquiry. Archetype Saturn Casters are available for the Archetype units. Note that casters present a tip-over risk.
Archetype shelves are not available in larger depths.

Can I store vinyl records in the bottom shelf?
A shopper on Jun 20, 2020
  Thanks for your question. The Archetype 5.0 has fully adjustable shelves. After installing the bottom shelf, the next shelf can be installed with enough space to accommodate records on the bottom shelf. The unit comes with easy to follow instructions.
