Yes, i am the James Brown of Audio. The hardest working man in Audio. No kidding, i have seen a lot and had great teachers. One reason is that i like to travel and the other is i always wanted to know the real source of information. There are not many Avatars left on the planet. Maybe 5 or 7.

20 years ago i worked a lot with Mr.Manger the inventor of the bending wave driver
Aaaahh - I remember some Audio Physic speakers that had 3 Manger transducers. These where actually my "dream speakers" at the time, and that was just by reading the reviews. Not having the budget I did not venture to get to listen to them, if that had been possible at all. I think they must have been quite rare. I just wonder how good they were on an absolute scale.

the first 20 pairs or so where build by myself from something that whould translate into "Tank Wood" (Panzerholz). If you can hear one of thoose pairs you could recognise an amasing soundstage. One reviewer (Wendemuth) talked about "magic". I still have one pair pristinely preserved that you could listen to if you like. It is in Dortmund at a friend that actually build a special listening room for it. I neaded several days for the damping alsone. I build an acoustic swamp from 4 different materials beause the Manger Transduces is acoustically very opaque and does not like reflected preasure on the back. I had studied the Manger Transducer for 15 years until i build the Medea how it was called. Absulutely the most complicated box i ever build.

Kronos & his wife Rhea, Medea, you used to choose powerful or intensely tragic ancient Greek names for your statement designs. There is the Daniel Weiss Medea studio based DAC too. I will not ask, you know him.

The Medea is from 1991 so i was the first that used that name. I like the stuff that Weiss makes, met him on shows as a pleasant guy and i am not associated to Audio Physic any more, so he can use that name if he likes.
I was always fascinated by ancient Greek culture and i am happy to have a friend there that fills in on my weakness: power supply. I am also weak on power amps but i am learning. in electronics i am more a low level precision guy.
