I use a Synergy (Twin 40) for its adjustability, capacity, attractiveness, relative affordability, and the fact that I could get it on casters. They are sufficiently sturdy to hold up heavy gear securely, and offer lots of configuration options. These are the features the stands are designed to offer and the reasons people buy Salamander. But if it's "better quality" you're after -- meaning in audiophile terms primarily better rigidity and isolation -- and you're willing to possibly pay more for it, then there are many other makes too numerous to list that beat Salamander. Whether these offer sonic superiority worth the cost/convenience tradeoff in your system context is something you'd have to judge for yourself.
