DW Fearn

DW Fearn began working part time as an engineer for WPEN in Philadelphia while still in high school.  His passion for audio grew and developed as he collected equipment.  His goal was to create a recording studio with his gear, which he did in 1969 and he called it Veritable Recording Company.  While working in the studio, DW realized that the audio output was sometimes hampered by the limitations of the equipment that he had.  As a result, he set out on the quest to create equipment designed to provide features not necessarily offered in other products.  In 1993, DW introduced the first of many pioneering audio products, the VT-1 Vacuum Tube Microphone Preamplifier.  The rest is history!
