I was sad to learn today of the death of Tim de Paravicini, one of the audio industry’s outstanding engineers and designers.
I know that I am not alone in the dCS community in using components designed by him for his company EAR Yoshino. However others may well be using his designs unknowingly as he undertook consultancy work for many other brands. Furthermore many of us will have benefited from his designs in the professional audio world through hearing the recordings recorded or mastered using his equipment.
His was a unique talent that will not easily be replaced.
