Yes, this is sad news. Brian Cheney's VMPS speaker designs routinely gave more bang-for-the-buck than the competition. He and his no-nonsense approach to speaker design will be sorely missed.

My best wishes to Brian for his recovery.

Saddened to hear this, hope Brian can indeed recover and wishing him all the best.
Update - according to a thread over Audiocircle Brian passed away yesterday evening.

RIP Brian
This is really too bad. I was just thinking of this brand
a few days ago and was going to call to find a dealer. I always like the looks of the giant FF-1s? but never even got a change to see (except for photos) or hear them. Too bad for all of us.
