Stray thought..

Die- cut kapton insulator sheet between the backplanes and chassis.

Yes, I know there’s no excuse for sloppy assembly work, but clearance is tight in that area. Prevent a spark gap?

It’s your amp so I can’t tell you what to do with it. Better to use the ruler test outlined in the instructions. Prevents parasitic pickup if you get leads too close to chassis. If you use insulator, I have seen too long leads plus insulator work initially but fail years or month later when the leads pierce through

As I said, no excuse for sloppy assembly work!
Just a stray thought, looking for opinions.
