Modular System of Player Configuration

Dune HD Smart players allow to create custom configurations based on the primary (head) unit like Dune HD Smart B1/H1/D1 and several optional extension modules of choice, which can be combined to form an integrated player.

The Dune HD Smart player itself is a head unit which can be extended at user's desire with extension modules, such as the following:
Dune HD Smart HE (Scan LN40691) (adds the option for easy installation of SATA 3.5" HDD with hot swap feature).
Dune HD Smart ME (Scan LN40695) (adds the option for installing different additional modules, in particular, for reception of satellite, cable or digital terrestrial TV).
Dune HD Smart BE (Scan LN40693) (adds the option for Blu-ray/DVD/CD playback) (including commercial Blu-ray/DVD discs).

Extension modules can work exclusively with the head unit (Dune HD Smart player) and use a common control system, implemented via the head unit. The number of connected modules may vary in a wide range: the user can compile his/her own Dune HD Smart system of e.g. two, three and even six components.

In order to group SMART devices by 2 or 3 horizontally, special mounts can be used. For example, a group of 3 modules, including the head unit, combined this way, will comprise a new player of a standard size like the model Dune HD Max.

Besides, grouping the required number of modules allows to supersede the functionality of Dune HD Max, providing more flexibility at the same time. In particular, the modular approach provides the possibility to group modules in any order at any time depending on user's demands, as well as replacing (upgrading) particular modules instead of replacing the entire set of equipment.

The Dune D1 does not have a drive bay nor space for one as it is a HDD based unit. There is an additional unit which is the drive bay counterpart to this unit; That is the Dune B1, which has a bluray optical drive but there's no mention of the optical bay in the description. Is the Optical Bay in the title an error otherwise what optical bay is included with this unit please?
