It's 1975 when as an 11 year old I walk into the sound and vision department of Valkenberg in Amsterdam where my attention is drawn to an extremely tight sounding bass which appears to be coming from a pair of speakers on the top shelf. They are equipped with a square red illuminated signal light and sound way bigger then one would expect from such small enclosures. Ten years later while performing an internship with the Philips Technisch Service centre I'm able to explore their technology in more detail. The following year I bump into my first 22RH532 set at the local second hand shop together with a 22RH762 preamp for the sum of 100 guilders.
Early 90s I join Microsoft where the audio genes remain dormant while pursuing a career in IT until around 2000 camphuisen.com is registered and scans of the MFB service documents are put online. Thomas 'mfbfreaks' Baur and I bump into each other online and in 2003 we organize the first mfb freaks meeting where we are introduced to Piet Gouw, the former Philips hifi PM.
At the time of writing motional feedback is regaining popularity among music lovers and professionals resulting in a steadily growing number of initiatives targeted towards bringing the technology back to life.
The focus at Piratelogic is right at the heart of the motional feedback technology, our latest StarBass accelerometer designs pave the way for a new breed of motional feedback enclosures like our Little/One which remains true to the original concept - a big sound from a small cabinet.
