Thanks Daniel, interesting from body assembly. No one noticed the A1 audio gain controls are backwards.

Cheers.

Excellent video....I always wondered how much of the manufacturing was automated vs manually assembled.

Cool vid, I always like to see how things come apart. Better in this video than on my desk!

Also love how they blur out the super-secret color bars on the computer monitors, and how many times I heard "high-quality."
