From the gossip I've heard, the split between Geoff and Shaun has been coming to a head for quite some time. Phoenix USA (Geoff) made the GTQ-2 and Phoenix UK (Shaun) made the DRS-2 so I can't see why the DRS-2 would be affected by the split. Geoff on the otherhand either legally or otherwise put his own product under a new umbrella.

I did hear that both divisions were making competing products (the above mentioned mic pre's) against themselves which may have attributed to the falling out.

Regardless of the reason for the split, they both make fine products.
Actually, to put the record straight a little....All prototype work and prototype funding, Schematics, PCB layouts, pre-production runs, and indeed, the first production batches of the GTQ2 were done entirely in the U.K. The DRS-2, DRS-1, and all up-coming Phoenix products will continue to be manufactured in the U.K.
