He flew out to the left coast...on his own dime...to help us setup, measure and evaluate a variety of speakers for our GTG...none of which were his own. He wasn't selling anything...just being a part of the family and sharing the joy of loudspeaker discovery. As far as I can tell, he has no audio biases or agendas. He certainly never was in the business for the money. And yes, he donated a large portion of proceeds to another of his joys, symphonic music. I think his playing the viola was just an excuse to be part of that symphony family.
Even before he retired, he designed, made, and shared those things with anyone who was interested. Dennis, to me, is a world class human being and I so fervently hope he gains health and well-being soon. He gives so much to our hobby...and gave so much to me personally. I miss his presence here terribly.
having never met Dennis in person, I can agree with this sentiment...he has gone overboard to be helpful to me and dozens of others via this forum, emails and person communication. And to have a master of speaker design actually design, assemble, test and ship your speakers is rare!
