  • Are you an audio equipment manufacturer looking to outsource product design to experienced engineers familiar with manufacturing processes? 
  • Are you an audio professional, seeking someone to design and even assemble a one-off circuit to solve a particular problem to boost your productivity and simplify your workflow? 
  • Is your laboratory in need of highly specialised electronics or mechanical precision instruments which are simply not available anywhere? 
  • Are you struggling with vintage or obsolete equipment, spare parts or tools? 
  • Are you losing sleep due to downtime as a result of equipment/machinery failure in the studio, at the factory, or in the laboratory? 
  • Are you having trouble with your quality control or manufacturing parameter control? 
  • Are your design engineers constantly producing designs/drawings/schematics that the manufacturing department cannot manufacture, or when they can, the end result does not function as expected? 
  • Are you manufacturing a product but have no idea how to test if it actually meets the requirements set forth by published standards documents? 
  • Does it measure right but it just sounds plain wrong? 
  • #$^*%~>$$&**?!?
