I made my interview with Ed available here. 12Mb so takes a few seconds to load.

I would not be a diyAudio Member, if it wasn't for Ed Dell and his publications. Thank you Mr. Ed Dell.

I remember spending $6 or so, a lot for being a college student, at the local Heathkit store for a circa 1977 issue of AA with a DIY Heil AMT driver on the front cover. I was taking EE and was interested not just in better audio, but how things worked. It was the only thing that satisfied my thirst for such knowledge. I've since got all issues of AA and SB, and read if not everything, at least several articles in each issue.

Thank you, Mr. Dell, and may you rest in peace.

DIY was popular prior to the 60's and went through a down period, Ed was responsible IMO for the revival of DIY Audio in the US at least.

90 years is a good run (hope I get there ) .

RIP for a good man.

In the sixties and seventies you could actually walk into a number of hifi shops and buy what you wanted for a nice price and didn't have to do it yourself. Now if you want anything like the quality of an older McIntosh or a Fischer or Dynaco or many other brands you just get sticker shock and say forget it, I'll do it myself. We are back to how it all began in the 50's where you are better off buying a kit if you can or doing your own design based on someone else design if you can't do it yourself.

Another loss for the diy community. Ed probably did more for the audio hobby then anybody else.
I had the privelige to meet him a few times, last a few years ago when I interviewed him.

It's quite safe to say that this community on DIYaudio would not exist without Mr. Dell's work. He planted the tree and made it grow for many, many years. We are all in his debt.
