I have some very sad news to announce.

Rodney Gold passed away recently and on behalf of the forum I offer his family our condolences.

See this discussion over on What's Best Forum where Rodney was a very active member.

Regards,
Carl

Very sad. His well-informed comments gave me food for thought on more than one occasion.

OMG, that's horrific news. Poor guy. I haven't read Carl's link yet but the news is truly shocking.

I always thoroughly enjoyed Rodney's posts & he had a great knowledge & insight into our hobby & particularly all-things bass & room correction.

This forum will miss him. Isn't life fickle?

Very sad news indeed. His ability to think outside the box with his audio system and share his knowledge gained from doing so will be sorely missed. My condolences.

I found this brief video, presumably of Rodney, enjoying his amazing system.
