All electronics are supported by copper plating on the main chassis which guarantees the best ground connection at any point and improves Signal to Noise behavior significantly. In total, 15 single-board HDAM modules are used to achieve the best channel separation for reference-setting audio performance. Finally, everything is exceptionally well covered by a heavy top lid constructed out of three pieces.
