    Opps, I meant aspects not Apricots!!

    It looks like a FPGA to me, see the chip cooling fins. Looks like a lot of open space for extra boards? External power supply so layout in your photo because of that.

    Interesting. They have gone the Chord DAVE route? More info would be good....

    Thank you for your information CKKeung....
    I would wish keeping this thread dedicated to Arcadia DAC.
    I opened an Atlantis one time ago to discuss each model as they deserves....����

    In the meantime, you can ask all your questions to answer them on my Arcadia review....
    Greetings.

    ASIC chips, no FPGA chips.

    Hi astro...

    The two layers of black plates have a specific purpose both the position and the material.
    The alloy is different (in total there are 3 different alloys in the chassis).
    The mission is triple: balance between conduction of vibrations, controlled internal damping, manage the currents of the chassis towards the earth. Everything has to be a synergy.
    The Atlantis Dac has a separate power supply so there is no need to use this solution.

    Regards...

    I had not noticed, but it is true that the two black layers appear displaced, both in the pictures of Syerephonic and in mine.
