board handle cutouts (one pair located at the
front of the amplifier and one pair located at
the rear of the amplifier) and simultaneously
lift the amplifier straight up, out of the carton.

When the front and rear of a cabinet are open
the air space between the chassis and shelf
must be unobstructed. If you place the amplifi-
er in a closed cabinet, you may need to modify
