@Shadders ? I guess I should ask for this thread to be nuked.

Regards,

No I think Bose fits perfectly...the James Dyson of the audio World.  It takes some real out of the box thinking to come up something like the 901 speaker or a hand drier that makes use of your shirt cuffs to dry your hands. 

 

Somewhere, here, I have a great off-topic thread:  Dyson -- the Bose of the Vacuum cleaner world.  

 

Glad to see I am not the only one to see the parallels.

 

Edit: here we go:

Marconi and Hertz only dealt with radio telegraphy. Had digital audio been invented then, it might have been transmitted that way, of course.

 

Don't get me wrong, their contributions to science were great, just not audio related.

 

ok, they're out

Ed Meitner has been building state of the art audio gear for four decades and holds several patents. He was an important part of the SACD story and built the first DSD DAC.

Now thats not really being fair to Dyson. At least he produces things that perform and have value!

Dyson vacuums suck.  (Ha, you can't tell where I stand on them with that statement.) :o

 

But more seriously, Demian Martin (Spectral, Constellation, Monster, etc.) has close to two dozen patents to his name and one very sharp--and still living and contributing--engineer.  A nod should be given to John Curl as well.  John Stronzer at Bel Canto has been innovative too, though I am not sure of any fundamentally radical research of his.

I have one, and I can attest to that. I also have a Dyson fan. It blows.
