Mr. Nelson Pass,

Learning from this forum and your sites, I just have to ask you a question.
You have written so much valuable articles, publishing your own design in the net (even your commercial unit). So many of the DIYers thanks you for your generous information.
While some of the "loaded" guys in this same forum is quite secretive about their abilities, not to mention their not-willingness to share their tips or designs. It is very contrary to your behavior.
Maybe this is why there is a section of "Pass Lab" on this very diyaudio.com.
But you also often writes that you have patents and many attorneys, while at the same moment you are still passing your knowledge and designs to DIYers. Does just to knowing that other people are happy with your helps and designs worths so much, that you are willing to share your commercial designs?
How do you feel when your commercial units are successfull in the market, while you are still enjoying the forum with DIYers (maybe who couldn't buy your commercial products) in the world of audio electronics ?

Interesting to, once in a while, reflect on the man's influence on audio and diy inside and outside the USA. Truly remarkable is what I call him.

I do not know Mr Pass but i do know baron Eduard-Jean Empain, a man with an enormous vision in another field as did his family a century ago.
I would find Mr. Pass comparable to Empain, a man who, after a terrible kidnapping ordeal, told me: there are only 3 things in life which are important " a wife at your side, a glass of wine, preferably Petrus, and listening to the Violin Concerto of Beethoven and you can set the importance any way you want it".
I think that Mr. Pass has evolved as well into a gentil homme, enjoying finer and simple things in life.

Artist...??? No!

He informs us of all his knowledges, but at the same time he already has new things in his hand that we do not know yet. I think that he must be living with his own everlasting R&D, e.g. even during enjoying wine and sex. Mustbe hahaha...

The Great Pass or Grand Wizard as he is known to some has become one of the most successful and respected Icons in the Audio Industry and not without good reason.

To hear his story and admire the journey would be a rare treat.

An autobiography sure could be interesting reading.

Will Nelson P's fame overtake L. Nelson's ?
The first 'gives to all' the other 'took all'.
Cheers.

Default If i may

choose, that would be my 4th choice then... I will take Philippe Glass's arrangement from the entire LP of David Bowie's LOW.
The Low Symphonies......


I am humbled that the Grandmaster himself wrote down a reaction......

Oooooohh, what a deception... i thought you had nice taste...
the op61 of Beeth is kind of a eternal opus. Nothing simple or minimalistic, though.
