I used it for both Northerns and Southerns, and it worked fine with Nytran
membranes (S&S). Try it, maybe you can get a free sample (that's how I got it
the first time around).
There is one thing though; S&S stopped making their Nytran, and they were
getting their membranes from a different manufacturer. This was about 2 or
three years ago, and I don't know were that stands now. They swear that the
membranes both work the same, but I haven't tried the new one myself.
Good luck Michael van Waes.
