Our story begins in 2017… it was an exciting year in audio – Tidal introduced MQA, Lady Gaga dangled from NRG stadium while belting out her biggest hits, and I happened to receive an invitation to visit the audio wizard himself, Jim Fosgate. He said he wanted to show me something special he’d been working on. Like Charlie winning the Golden Ticket – I obliged Mr. Wonka’s invitation with palpable excitement. I soon found myself in Jim Fosgates’ mystifying and miraculous room of engineering wonders. As if entering his world of pure imagination, I witnessed, in real-time, the designing of a revolutionary audio circuit that would change audio.
