I am Soldering Iron Man
That’s quite a resume. That, in and of itself, does not make this new product viable. There have been many weird hifi accessories over the years released by folks with prior success as engineers.It won High End product of the year in 2003 at CES vs more than 15,000 other manufacturers.
Beat 15,000 other High End manufacturers.
It does work, and you ARE WRONG.
Stereo is actually not stereo because of the math flaw, which was never corrected, until this device came along.
Mr Bongiorono.. RIP.... was also chief engineer for Dynaco, Marantz, Harmon Kardon, and several other manufacturers.
James also invented Class A Solid State Power Amps.
Invented Servo Control, and many other electronic innovations.
James Bongiorno’s long and storied career spans two entirely distinct eras, from Hadley, Dynaco, Marantz, and SAE in the 1960s, to Constellation Audio in the second decade of the 21st century. Bongiorno designed amplifiers in six different decades, working alongside other industry legends such as Richard Sequerra, Sidney Smith, David Hafler, Morris Kessler, John Curl, and Bascom King.
But Bongiorno will best be remembered for Great American Sound (GAS), the company he founded in 1974 after leaving SAE. The GAS Ampzilla power amplifier was an instant classic, outperforming many much more expensive amplifiers and sending ripples through the industry. This was the dawn of the high-end renaissance, right about the time of Phase Linear and Audio Research, when the demand for relatively high-powered amplifiers was exploding. The 200Wpc Ampzilla was the first to feature a full dual-differential complementary amplifier circuit, a topology that is the basis for nearly every modern solid-state power amplifier. The Ampzilla not only sounded terrific and sold in huge numbers, but Bongiorno exemplified the maverick entrepreneurial designer who created his company from nothing but talent, a dream, and (literally) a kitchen table.

But I’m an open minded guy. Is there a white paper on this device that I could read? I may be a touch skeptical, but I’ve been wrong enough in my lifetime that I could accept it again.
