Only very high grade capacitors from Sonicap, Mundorf, ANSA, & Solen, OFC Solid Core, Heptalitz, & copper foil inductors, and reverse wound Mills & ceramic resistors are used.

Our cabinets are made
from the highest quality Particle & MDF boards (some laminates of both)
covered in genuine jarrah veneer, or in the case of
