Great guys to deal with in the audio industry

I think it will be great for all of us to share our experiences with great guys in this industry, helping others to make easier decisions the next time they need to buy equipment.

My recomendations:

Tyler Lashbrook, from Tyler Acoustics
Mark O┬┤Brien, from Rogue Audio
Vincent Chen, from Emotiva
Clint Hartman, from Wyred 4 Sound
Brian Ding and Enrico Castagnetti, from Rythmik Audio

Please, share your recommendations.
Based on personal experience:

Lou Hinkley of Daedalus Audio
Kevin Hayes of VAC

And although I haven't had occasion to deal with the following gentlemen, based on their contributions to these forums and on customer comments I have seen I have no doubt that the following should be included:

Ralph Karsten of Atma-Sphere
Duke LeJeune of AudioKinesis

Agree with Mark O'Brien of Rogue and would add John DeVore of DeVore Fidelity and Jim McShane for tubes and tube advice.
