RIP Magneplanar Inventor Jim Winey (1934-2024)

The stereo industry suffered a big loss today.

Per the Absolute Sound

In Memory: Magneplanar Inventor Jim Winey (1934-2024)

Although it is inevitable, it is still saddening to see the stalwarts of high-end audio pass away. In the last decade or so, we’ve lost David Wilson of Wilson Audio Specialties, William Zane Johnson of ARC, Arnie Nudell of Infinity and Genesis, Bascom King also of Infinity and, lately, Constellation Audio, Atsushi Miura of Luxman and Air Tight, Lloyd Walker of Walker Audio, Jim Thiel of Thiel Audio, A.J. Conti of Basis Audio, Tim de Paravicini of EAR, Hideaki Nishikawa of TechDAS, and, of course, Gordon Holt and HP, among many, many others.
