R.I.P. Brent Rainwater a.k.a.
I am saddened to announce that long time Audiogon member Brent Rainwater passed away last Saturday...He was 55 years old.
I am still stunned at the loss of a treasured friend and a consummate audiophile. Audiophiles as well as high-end manufacturers benefited greatly from his superb set of ears, his 110% commitment, and his infectious enthusiasm for perfecting musical reproduction....both before and after he became an audio dealer (rainwateraudio.com). I valued his integrity and selfless help....I learned a lot from him.
Most of all, I appreciated Brent's friendship. Whether on the phone or in person, there was never a dull moment. He had a vivid imagination, quick wit and a colorful sense of humor. He was a multi-dimensional man: music lover, movie buff, chef, art collector, business man, and all around great guy. I will miss him.
My deepest condolences to his wife Anne and family!
May he rest in peace,
