Holy @#%! Really????

I've spent a lot of time with Allen over the past 6 or 7 years. A real gentleman, loved sharing ideas and music. I'm... shattered.

This makes me VERY sad. He was a good friend. The audio world has lost one of its brightest lights.

Melanoma, very quick, I hear.
Evil form of cancer. It killed my boss quickly. From diagnosis to his passing was three months. He was 52 years old. This is common. My mother in law has had melanoma for over 4 years now. There was an experimental treatment at the University of Pittsburgh that kept the cancer from spreading, but couldn't kill it. Sadly the treatment ended when the sponsor figured out that there was no money to be made there. It doesn't look too good now.

It is sad to loose a fellow member in this way, or any other way.
Too much power is almost enough! Turn it up till it explodes - then back up just a little.

This is bad news. Many of our high speed op-amps were designed by Jeff Townshend who passed away at 33 from the same malady. He was at the beach and a doctor mentioned a mole in the small of his back, he was gone in a few months.
