As you get older, sometimes life can throw you a real curveball. Things out of your control, and sometimes health and family take priority, without your choice. I would suggest working with Adam or as you know him here as Doc. He would know what Karl is up to and when he will be able to get product out.

It sure does, bzone! Thanks for the mention.

Here is the good news. NPNG is still alive and breathing. But he is re-tooling the NPNG product line up.

The QMP/DMP Quad and Dual Mic Preamp units with external power supplies are just too expensive to build in the current climate. Diehilo Direct Boxes are still available though Karl can build up a unit in one day! They are 2-channels of Active DI for $250

Again, its truly a blessing to say, my long time friend and colleague Karl, is healthy and well. He is dealing with tons of ****ty non-audio things..so bare with him and his Company. He is very busy doing service and installation work at Local Studios.

He is a very in demand technician for the local Atlanta area. He has a few dealers, (many have posted this thread) and they would be your best chance to purchase and get support on NPNG products.

NPNG will construct another fresh web site when he gets finished re-tooling the product line. In the meantime, NPNG dealers are your best resource for "what's going on".

peace

I'm very sorry to have to bump this thread with this sad news but I just got a notice on Facebook from NPNG - it's a post from Elle, Karl's Daughter informing the audio community that Karl has been diagnosed with advanced liver cancer

I've never met him but I do love my NPNG preamp and my heart and well wishes go out to him and his family.

I've attached a screenshot for those of you not on facebook

They've set up a go fund me for him https://www.gofundme.com/f/uplift-ka...UUtlHgfq4pCUpQ

I had gotten word he'd been moved home for Hospice care in the last few days. I hope he was comfortable in his final days.

RIP

This is heartbreaking. I hope you're making everyone up there as happy as you made people down here Karl. Be easy brother.

QMP-4NW serial number 001 will continue making music, hopefully outliving all of us. Karl talked music and recording with such enthusiasm. His equipment, and his inspiring personality, will not be forgotten.

Heard a lot of great things about his preamps over the years. Never had the pleasure of using one. RIP.
