Siegfried Linkwitz RIP

Sad to report the passing of legendary loudspeaker designer/innovator Siefried Linkwitz. Mr. Linkwitz had been suffering with prostate cancer for some time and had been receiving home hospice care.

I'm glad I conducted the interview last spring when a friend and business associate of Mr. Linkwitz offered the opportunity while in the Bay area to speak to the San Francisco Audiophile Society under what were challenging circumstances.

The video was to only be used to assist fund raising for the hospice organization helping Mr. Linkwitz. If Linkwitz and his wife felt the results were good enough they said they'd give permission for the audio to be posted here, but after watching it they thought it was worth sharing on video.

Please watch it and read the backgrounder above the embedded YouTube video.

Thank you very much for introducing me to Linkwitz' and his work. I was deeply touched by that video. Frankly I was only then pointed to the man's work, I had not heard of him before. I love it that you visited him at the hospital honoring your friendship and paying respect. I felt instantly connected to Linkwitz' ”philosophy“. It fits another quote that I keep thinking about a lot these days: ”Focus more on what you need instead of what you want.”
