HD Radio Question

I just purchased a 2009 Z4 sDrive30i. It has the HD Radio with 8 speakers (midrange and tweeter in doors, subwoofer in kick panel, and midrange in shoulder panel). I would like to keep the radio, as it is integrated with the iDrive system, but upgrade the rest of the system. Does anyone know if the HD Radio has a separate amplifier, and if so, where is it located?

I looked into upgrading the audio in my old 2011 e89 that had standard sound. Most shops would not touch it because the components are so tightly packed and inaccessible. I went to one of the top places in the DFW area that will work on BMW sound, but a decent upgrade was going to be several thousand dollars ($3.5K to $4K?) - forget the exact amount, but it was off the charts.

I made sure to get the high end sound in my 2016.
