I used a PEQ0b (our third mini-production run) a couple of week in the past. We nonetheless have extra cycles to go (PEQ1-PEQ5), however it was superior. In 2014 (simply over 2 years in the past) we had been nonetheless in a bit warehouse-strip mall thingy and simply rolling into the DCOTA, and simply turning on the primary WDx sequence (WD1, WD2, WD3, and many others.). We now have a working manufacturing unit and PEQ techniques in hand.
We solely have one response that issues.
Ignore all of this. Concentrate on what we’re doing, and we ship a terrific product. That can converse loudly and reverberate for a few years.
