As with all YBA products, the chassis rests on three feet, two of which are damped, the third in aluminium ends in a metal ball serving as the vanishing point of the vibrations. The power on/off switch is located on the underside of the chassis towards the front of the left-hand side. Two buttons feature on the front panel, one for source selection and one for volume and centred between them is an oval-shaped display with yellow lettering indicating the connected source and the volume reached. A beautiful remote control will allow you to access the functions from a distance.
