Simply Physics

Whatever happened to Rick Roberts of Simply Physics and Esoteric Ear in Houston? Is he stll in business?
I don't know where Rick Roberts is or the fate of his company. I have not spoken to him in a long time.

His expensive black V2 Decoupler with stainless steel insert is still my reference footer. Used with my Soundlab U1 speakers, amp stands and subs.

I did not like the less expensive feet such as the ToneCones and Vinylex Pods, but surprised that his company is gone, if that is indeed the case.
Rick's retail store (Esoteric Ear) closed several years ago. The last time I saw him he was designing web pages and similar computer based activities (about one year ago). I do not think he is still operating Simply Physics, but I am unsure of this.
