1. Company origins

Prior to starting the company, John Hardy did audio circuit design for DB Sound. One of his biggest projects for the company was the design and construction of new live mixing console for the band Kansas. The console was based around a modular concept, with an input module designed by Hardy called the IM-200. In 1980, after reading the published spec of Deane Jensens 990 Op Amp in an issue of AES journal, he began building the 990c, initially building them for Jensens company, Jensen Transformers. His first product was a replacement preamp card for the MCI 500-series console, later adapted for both the MCI 600 and the Sony MXP-3000. In 1987, he began building a stand-alone preamp, the M-1.
