Arguably one of the founding fathers of high-end audio Harry Pearson passed away a few days ago. If you’ve been an audiophile for a few decades, there is little chance you missed the effect this man had on shaping our industry into what it is today. He wasn’t always the easiest guy to get along with, but a pioneer he was, and we have him to thank for so many years of service to audiophiles everywhere.
Two tributes to his life and times are worth reading: A short memoir from our friend Albert Von Schweikert, and an extensive piece by the indomitable Michael Fremer. Please click below to read:
