His amp designs defined great sounding Class D.

So sad.

2021 has been hard on the audio industry.  Losing Rick Craig of Selah Audio hit me hard...  😞  He and I butted heads many times, but he was always a gentleman and I loved the man.

RIP, Tommy.  You were a great guy; very generous with your time and skill.  And skilled you were, an excellent EE with new ideas in digital audio devices.  52 is far too young to die.

Well, at 91 it's somewhat expected, Tommy was only 52, not quite the same thing...
