Default Bernard Salabert

I hope it's not true.
But: I've been told he passed away.

Unfortunately, it does indeed appear to be true:
Bernard Salabert - R.I.P. - pink fish media
Bernard SALABERT : Décès - Midi Libre - Midi Libre (Montpellier)

My condolences to his family and friends.

One of the last people who made drivers at least in the spirit of some of the pioneering units from Western Electric et al. Arguably the last.

Oh.

Monsieur Salabert passed away.
But all of he did, it's still here, so, ...

My condolences to his family and friends.
And my thanks about what he did and gave- all of that is and will be so very alive.

Let's hope that PHY-HP can continue, preferably in the same vein as it always has. I'm sure Bernard would want just that.

That is sad news. He was and outspoken character who seemed genuinely passionate about his drivers, music and its reproduction.

Yes, let's hope his driver legacy can continue. Interestingly, A24 no longer produce PHY-HP based speakers due to inconsistent availability... though I am unsure of the cause.

My condolences to those who were close to him.

Regards.
