the assembly of the cable to the Jack has been done before. Today we did the following steps:

1. Removing the anodized aluminium at the corners so that the screws make a proper electrical connection to the main body

2. Removing that anodized aluminium at the back of the front panel to ensure a proper grounding of the LineOut Jack
