    Question Success beyond death

    I know it's a morbid topic. But there are many excellent products designed by folks who are getting up there in age. Which audiophile manufacturers are best suited to succeed after the "one man" passes on to the absolute sound in the sky?

    I agree. Dave has taken Daryl under his wings for the past 4-5 years and if I am not mistaken Daryl has been intimately involved in the production of all the newest Wilson speakers in that time although I do believe Dave's much anticipated WAMM will be his final hurrah by which he will be judged

    Hi if any successful designer were to adopt me, I am willing to carry on his company after he passes on

    I think Vandersteen is in good shape in this regard.

    I heard the Von Schweikert vr55 Aktive at RMAF. IIRC, Albert's son designed that speaker. If that's true, I think VSA is in great shape.

    I think VPI will do fine with the son, also.

    Yes. The new Thiel speakers bear no resemblance to his classic designs.
