The front panel features two 1/4-inch jack inputs, SoftClip switches, high/low impedance switches, gain control pots and clip LEDs, along with 3.5mm stereo headphone output and volume control. The back panel sports 4 3.5mm audio jack outputs, 1 3.5mm line input, two level individual level trim pots and two six-pin FireWire ports. Made of aluminum, HarmonyAudio is silver-colored.
