    A very kind generous person, who never stopped learning or teaching.

        I don’t even have the words. I have followed his work since the 70s. His enthusiasm was boundless and he will be missed for his personality as much as his intellect.

          I recall many times, that many people were going at it with Vas. Funny stuff.

            RIP, Mr. Linkwitz. Thank you for your contribution and education in the art and science of audio reproduction.

              The man behind one of the more often visited sites, having this hobby, is gone. I don’t know how many hundred times I found valuable info and inspiration there.

              Even not knowing him personally, one could feel profoud generosity and warmth just by reading him. RIP Siegfried.

                On a lighter note, I really hope Michael Fremer doesn't try to interview me on my deathbed.

                  Yes, I was surprised Siegfried agreed to that. Even on his deathbed Siegfried managed to get in a few good zingers in toward Michael and AnalogPlanet

                    I was informed that Mr. Linkwitz cancer had metasized to his brain so maybe his judgement about doing an interview was a bit compromised. On the other hand. how many of us will be passionate about the things that brought us joy, while on our deathbed. He was still sharp, funny, and passionate. It was a little awkward but I am greatful to see that one last visit.

                        :(

                        I only met him at SF, as he was packing his speakers.
                        Me ."I heard your speakers sound great."
                        Him. "young man. You missed it. They sound even better than that (chuckles)."
