01 We use two 1/2 inch aluminum rails to add strength rigidity to our chassis.
02 These rails attach to our strong, plated American made steel chassis.
03 The main board is screwed to these rails adding more strength.
04 We use thick, solid metal screws.
05 The thick, solid aluminum front panel adds even more strength, keeping everything racked and solid.
06 The top and bottom covers (which both remove for easy access to the circuitry inside) are folded, adding the final step in a rock-solid chassis.
07 The spring loaded tube shields not only keep out unwanted RF and EM interference, they also serve to hold the tubes in their sockets, ensuring that no shaking will work a tube lose.
08 The tube sockets themselves go through the main circuit board with a 'spiderweb' design underneath to keep heat away from the main board, and for easy repairs in case of damage.
09 We use the highest end potentiometers and switches mounted through the front panel, with the solid chassis design eradicating any flex.
10 Utilizing Switchcraft and Neutrik connectors, Summit Audio fly wires the inputs and outputs for solid, consistent use for many years of hard use without failures.
11 VU meters are mounted with aluminum standoffs in their own cradle, detached from the front panel to avoid any damage from jarring.
12 Our 1/2 rack products utilize a bent steel chassis, providing a solid pan design with strength coming from the solid American steel and bent metal.
13 More strength is in the details, like the intrinsic mounting holes, extra metal at the corners, metal stand-offs,
14 and using stainless steel screws throughout.
