The SIDDHARTA-2 experiment is ready to perform the first high precision X-ray spectroscopy measurement of the kaonic deuterium transitions to the fundamental level at the DAFNE collider of the INFN-LNF, to investigate the low-energy QCD in the strangeness sector. A dedicated experimental apparatus for high precision X-ray spectroscopy, which takes advantage of a new technology of Silicon Drift Detectors, able to operate in the high background environment of the DAFNE collider, has been realized to achieve this unprecedented goal. The contribution presents the SIDDHARTA-2 experimental apparatus, with a focus on the new technology of Silicon Drift Detectors spectroscopic response, and the preliminary results obtained during the DAFNE commisioning phase with SIDDHARTINO setup.
