Commitment to Design

Realize a peaceful audio environment

Realize a peaceful audio environment

The chassis interior utilizes 1.2 mm thick sheet metal that is 1.5 times that of the conventional thickness of 0.8 mm. It has a high-strength chassis, suppresses vibrations, and efficiently distributes heat throughout the entire chassis without a fan. The result is a peaceful audio environment.

Vibration suppressing rubber feet

Vibration suppressing rubber feet

The bottom is fitted with hemispherical rubber feet. By reducing the amount of direct contact with the ground surface, they reduce the amount of outside vibration transmitted to the interior.

Brightness suppressed LED

Brightness suppressed LED

As well has having a reduced illumination area, the LED that is visible while playing music has been designed with suppressed brightness.
