Jim Strickland moved to Arizona when Rockford bought Acoustat. (Or did Hafler buy Acoustat and Rockford bought Hafler?). As far as I know, he is still there designing Hafler pro gear. Don

By the way my Acoustat 4 right speaker started low level popping the other day and now it is WAY down on volume when compared to the left channel. The problem follows the speaker when switched with the left speaker and it stays with the speaker when power supplies are switched. Any ideas or am I now in the market for new speakers ?
Sad News for Acoustat lovers. I just got word from Roy Esposito an Engineer with Acoustat, that Mr Strickland has passed away apparently on Thankgiving Day 2017 in Mesa, AZ . what a Great product he designed, it is so sad that we are losing a lot of great Designer/ engineers we also lost Arnie Nudell of Infinity to Genesis a founding member, American schools are not teaching this stuff anymore, we as audiophiles should be teaching and passing this hobby on to the young ones, I know Paul McGowan of P.S.Audio is really sad right now, as they were very close friends.we too will miss them Mr.McGowan.
