    Default Our Good Friend John Hall honored by AES

    John Hall, a member here and designer of lots of audio gear that is still loved today, forwarded me this letter from the AES and I asked him if I could share it here. I'm happy for him, and honored to know someone who is receiving this presigious award. I'm sure he joins a host of other audio luminaries in recognition of his lifetime of work in this field.

    Let's here it for John. Yeah!

    Dear John,

    It is my great pleasure as Secretary of the Audio Engineering Society to inform you that the Awards Committee and Board of Governors have voted to present you with the Society's SILVER MEDAL AWARD, in recognition of nearly 40 years of innovative work in the development of phonograph and tape recording and reproduction equipment, stereophonic technology, mixing consoles, and signal processing equipment.

    As is customary, you have the option of accepting your Award at the upcoming AES Convention in the USA, October 5 – 8, 2006 in San Francisco, USA or at the following Convention in Europe, May 5 - 8, 2007 in Vienna, Austria. The Award will be presented by the AES President at the Awards Ceremony, which is scheduled on the first day of the Convention. You are also invited to the President’s Reception in honor of all AES awardees.


    Again, on behalf of the Audio Engineering Society, I wish to congratulate you on this Award.

    Best Regards,

    Han Tendeloo, AES Secretary

    No kidding.

    A great treat was hearing John speak on the Preamps in Paradise panel in TN that cold January day.

    Among a panel of guys we *all* think the world of: Grant, Dan, George, Doug, Greg, Oliver and others, John still stood out as an amazing mind and contributor to audio.

    It's been a treat to read his posts here...

    Congrats, John.

    At 20 bits, you are on the verge of dynamic range covering fly-farts-at-20-feet to untolerable pain. Really, what more could we need?

    Way to go John, and thanks for all your hard work.
    Am I the only one without a small type signature?

    Go to Austria John if they will pay for it.

    I know a great little town near Innsbruck where I stayed where the mineral SPA in the hotel was totally au natural. If you've never had the experience of bathing nude with men and woman aged from babies to seniors it is a winner. It is completely a_sexual. I was shocked at the wonder of it.

    Congrats and enjoy.
