My prototype passive EQ was first put into service in January of 2010, which means I probably started building it in December of 2009. In the beginning it was a passive EQ filter with no amplifier for makeup gain, no output transformer and the incorrect input transformer, but even then it sounded great. Since then I have occasionally modified, tweaked, added on and taken away from it, until 2013. In '13 I stared hitting it hard with lots of R&D time of which the most was conducted in the first few months of 2014. Yesterday I finally got the EQ sounding so great its breathtaking, which means I'm done. The actual production model will be somewhat different, but it will be strongly based on the prototype.
