The Biz is a great sounding piece of gear, I agree with the above comments.

What are the chips in there for? The switching on the dual mode?

the surface mount chips on the little green board are the LED meter driver circuit. you can pull that little board off and the audio part of the Biz will still work exactly the same, the lights just wont light up.

all the switching is done with relays, the blue and yellow rectangles. the red boxes are wima film caps.

They're in the buttons I believe:

Two LEDs clearly indicate signal level for the gain and output stages at a glance, turning green to indicate signal present, yellow for 10dB below clipping, and red for clipping.

There are LEDs in the buttons but the LEDs that show signal are to the left of the knobs.

Ok, gotcha... I thought the meter LED's were in the buttons, which didn't really make a whole lot of sense, but it sounded like it could be cool. I guess it would kind of defeat the purpose.
