R.I.P: Rest In Peace Roy Johnson, Green Mountain Audio's Genius
I was saddened to hear the news of Roy's passing.  As everyone who has spoken with Roy as commented, he was very generous with his time and loved to discuss the physics behind why speakers behaved the way they do. I got to know Roy back around 200...
