Jean-Michel was keeping a couple of pairs of 6681 drivers for his retirement
when he planned to move to Bretagne.

I bought Yamahas after emailing with him. It was actually him who found
them in Montreal for me exactly a year ago.

JMLC did so much to help put the horn on a modern footing equalling and surpassing other concepts of speaker design with the use of modern software. He is sadly lost to us all. Heis one of those who keep the DIY and other niches going. Bless his soul.

I only just saw this, very sad to read it, my condolences to Jean-Michel's family. I had several private correspondences with him when his finite-difference horn profiles were in early stages, and he was wonderfully helpful and even posted me photocopies of horn technology articles in French. I owe him and I am sad.

Default hommage to Jean-Michel, at musée des Mines in Paris, by french Team and friends.

Je suis tombe dans la Hifi en 1968 quand mon oncle dont le travail consistait a exploiter des juke-box dans les cafés m'a offert pour mon 14eme anniversaire un amplificateur push pull de 6L6 de schéma Loyez.
Je m'intéresse beaucoup a l'utilisation des tubes en basse-fréquence et aux systèmes à très haut rendement
Dans mon système, j'ai construit presque tous les maillons, et ceux que je n'ai pas construits ont tous été modifies par moi-même.
En fait je fais plutôt partie des bricoleurs, ceux qui font tout eux-mêmes.

Voici ce que Jean-Michel disait le 26 nov. 1998 à la création du premier forum HiFi francophone dont le nom était SonQc et dont il fut le premier membre.
Quelle leçon de modestie.

JM était un homme de passion. Passionnant et passionné.
C'est entre autre à ce monde de la Haute Fidélité qu’il s’est consacré avec passion, pour le conduire à être reconnu internationalement comme l’un des plus éminent spécialistes de ce domaine.
Ses passions il vous les faisait partager en vous communiquant celles-ci avec un sens aiguë de la transmission. Transmettre je pense que dans ce lieu le mot prend tout son sens.

Il était membre de l'association Melaudia, et sa présence faisait toujours autorité et référence. Melaudia signifie Mélomanes et Audiophiles Associés. Jean-Michel était une pierre fondatrice, engagé et actif dans toutes nos activités. Que ce soit par sa présence aux réunions de l'association, par sa participation à des séminaires Européens ou son implication très forte dans les discussions sur les sujets qu'il affectionnait dans les forums de Haute Fidélité sur Internet et particulièrement celui de Mélaudia et bien sur celui de SonQc qu'il anima avec talent et passion..

Il ne nous parlait pas que de Haute Fidélité, mais de tir à l'arc, de son amour pour le Japon et aussi de sa Bretagne peut-être sa vraie passion.
Quelques souvenirs nous reviennent en mémoire. Plusieurs fois par an Mélaudia de réunit à Rueil Malmaison et souvent comme toute association nous avons une sorte de rituel. Le samedi nous procédons à l'installation de notre système, deux énormes enceintes acoustiques et du matériel électronique fait maison souvent prêté par Jean-Michel. A ce moment Jean-Michel avec son sens de la perfection nous aidait à régler le positionnement et la cohérence du système. C'était toujours un grand moment d'éducation pour tous les participants. Le dimanche la journée est en général dédiée à l'écoute du système avec quelquefois une conférence. Jean-Michel en a fait de nombreuses dont certaines ont fait le tour de la planète grâce à Internet. Pendant le déjeuner, moment très convivial c'était toujours un privilège de pouvoir être à coté de Jean-Michel car nous avions tous tellement de questions à lui poser. A l'heure d'Internet sa renommée a largement dépassée nos frontières. Pardon pour cette familiarité, mais une simple recherche en tapant ' filtrage Lecleach' sur internet vous aurez en réponse plus d'un million de liens. C'est dire l'influence qu'il a eu dans le monde de l'audio. Je ne veux pas ici et maintenant expliquer ses nombreuses contributions en terme d'acoustique, d'architecture pour la propagation des sons, de feuilles de calcul et de modélisation, d'électronique et bien d'autre qui resteront comme des références pour tous les audiophiles dans le monde. Je n'en retiendrai que deux qui portent son nom et qui demeureront : le filtrage Lecleach et les Pavillons Lecleach. Là le travail de Jean-Michel non seulement a jeté un regard neuf, mais il ouvre des perspectives dont la portée ne cessera, de s’imposer dans les années à venir. On comprend qu’une disparition si brusque ait suscité tant de réactions. Comment peut-on se résigner à ce qu’un tel esprit cesse aussi brutalement de nous éclairer.


Jean-Michel était aussi un homme proche des autres. Il était toujours là pour aider chacun à progresser. Sous son apparence austère il était empli de gentillesse se préoccupant toujours des autres. Il était aussi plein d'humour et toujours modeste.

Il est difficile d'imaginer qu'il ne sera pas des notre à notre prochaine réunion. Je crois que c'est à ce moment que nous ressentirons tous le vide qu'il laisse, car il ne viendra pas. Je voudrai dire qu'au delà de la perte d'un grand éducateur et d'un mentor pour beaucoup d'entre nous c'est la perte d'un ami qui laissera une blessure qui ne se refermera pas. Je voudrai enfin exprimer au nom de Melaudia notre profonde sympathie à sa famille et te dire Jean-Michel que tu resteras toujours dans nos coeurs.

tribute to Jean- Michel , at the Museum of Mines in Paris , by french Team and friends .
I fell in Stereo in 1968 when my uncle whose job was to exploit jukeboxes in cafes gave me for my 14th birthday a push pull amplifier 6L6 of Loyez scheme .
I am very interested in the use of tubes in low - frequency and high performance systems
In my system, I built almost all the links , and those I have not built were all modified by myself.
In fact I rather part of handymen, who do everything themselves.

Here's what Jean- Michel said November 26, 1998 to create the first francophone forum HiFi whose name was SonQc and he was the first member .
What a lesson in modesty.

JM was a man of passion. Exciting and passionate.
This is among other things to the world of High Fidelity he devoted himself passionately to him to be internationally recognized as one of the most eminent specialists in this field .
His passions he made you share you by contacting them with a sharp sense of the transmission. Forward I think in this place the word makes sense .

He was a member of the Association Melaudia , and his presence was still authority and reference . Audiophiles and music lovers Melaudia means Associates. Jean- Michel was a founding stone, engaged and active in all our activities . Whether by his attendance at meetings of the association, through its participation in European or seminars strong involvement in discussions on subjects he loved Forums Hi Fi internet and particularly that of Mélaudia well that of anima SonQc it with talent and passion ..

He did not tell us that High Fidelity , but archery , his love for Japan and Britain as its perhaps his true passion.
Some memories come to mind . Several times a year to meet Mélaudia Rueil Malmaison and often as any association we have a kind of ritual . Saturday we proceed to the installation of our system , two huge speakers and electronics homemade often loaned by Jean- Michel . At this time Jean- Michel with his sense of perfection helped us to adjust the positioning and consistency of the system. It was always a great time education for all participants. On Sunday, the day is usually dedicated to listening system with sometimes a conference. Jean- Michel has made many , some of which have been around the world through the Internet. During lunch time very friendly it was always a privilege to be next to Jean- Michel because we all had so many questions to ask him. In Internet time his fame extends far beyond our borders. Sorry for this familiarity , but a simple search by typing ' Lecleach filter ' on internet for you response over a million links. This shows the influence he had in the world of audio . I will not explain here and now his many contributions in terms of acoustics , architecture for the propagation of sound, spreadsheets and modeling, electronics and many other which will remain as a reference for all audiophile worldwide . I will mention only two that bear his name and which remain : filtering Lecleach and Chalets Lecleach . Here the work of Jean -Michel not only took a fresh look , but it opens up prospects whose scope cease to prevail in the coming years . It is understood that if sudden disappearance has caused such reactions. How can we resign ourselves to such a mind ceases as suddenly enlighten us .


Jean- Michel was also a man close to the other . He was always there to help everyone grow. Under his austere appearance was filled with kindness always concern of others. He was also full of humor and always modest.

It is difficult to imagine that it will not at our next meeting. I think that 's when we all feel the void he leaves because it will not come. I want to say that beyond the loss of a great teacher and mentor to many of us is the loss of a friend who leaves a wound that will not close . Finally I would like to express on behalf of Melaudia our deepest sympathy to his family and tell you Jean-Michel that you will always remain in our hearts.
