Default Internal amp wiring

Just a few questions about internal amp wiring. I know the basics. AC wiring to get 120 VAC to the transformer primary, hot side goes through fuse, power switch, and one lead of the transformer primary. Neutral goes to the other transformer lead. Safety ground hooks to amp chassis. On the DC side, both rails, ground, and speaker output attach to the appropriate places on the PCB. I hear about "star grounding." How does that work?

all ground connections (not safety ground) should connect at one point in the circuit and nowhere else.
