Default RIP Jean Michel LeCleac'h

All horn and quasi-optimal crossovers addicts will be very sad to know that Jean-Michel Le Cleac'h won't post anymore :

Notre Grand Ami Jean-Michel Le Cléac'h

Sad to hear of his death.

He was a generous man. Ready and open to share his knowledge and wisdom.

I will miss him.

Not to be irreverent but please read the link shown in post #1673.

My french is not to bad, and there is always google translate.

Bonjour à vous tous,

Notre Grand Ami Jean-Michel, devait, comme à son habitude, venir diner ce samedi soir à la maison. C'était pour nous tous, avec Jean-Luc et Amélie et et aussi pour son père Joseph qui l'accompagnait toujours, un grand moment où l'on écoutait de la musique, ses idées, toujours novatrices, ses pavillons Iwata300, mes amplis à tubes, bref des moments magiques passés ensemble. Il était toujours très heureux à l'idée de nous retrouver autour d'un repas.
Jean-Michel n'a pas résisté à un accident de santé qui l'a emporté en quelques heures. Il retrouvera le chemin de son église de Loctudy mardi 31 décembre à 14H30. J'ai demandé à tenir l'orgue pour que nous puissions l'un et l'autre, une dernière fois écouter de la musique.

Bien cordialement à vous tous.
René CARIOU

Hello to you all,

Our Grand Ami Jean-Michel, was, as usual, come Saturday night dinner at home. It was for all of us, with Jean-Luc and Amélie and also to his father Joseph who always accompanied him, a great time when people listened to music, ideas, always innovative, its Iwata300 flats, my amps tube, brief magical moments spent together. He was always very happy with the idea of finding ourselves with a meal.
Jean-Michel did not survive an accident health won in a few hours. He will find his way to church with Cockles Tuesday, December 31 at 14:30. I asked to keep the organ for us the one and the other one last time listening to music.

Best regards to you all.
René CARIOU
There are errors but the basics are there. Accident he did not survive.

Jean-Michel helped me countless times. For me it's very personal loss.

His last wish was to test Iwata-300 and EJMLC-600 horns with Mac Cauley 9620 and Yamaha 6681.

Very Sad news. Very sad.
"un accident de santé" doesn't mean an accident like a car. Might have been a heart attack or a stroke. Don't know. His funeral will be New Year's Eve.

A big loss for the audio community. It will not be the same without him

A true guru has left us alone. This man of great generosity, inventiveness, scientific rigor and modesty will miss us.
No doubt his name will remain amongst the leaders in the field of electro-acoustics.
No doubt, we all feel we have lost a friend.
R.I.P. with all the love you deserve Jean Michel.

It saddens me to hear of the recent passing of Jean-Michel Le Cléac'h. Certainly his continued presence will be missed by all here as well as the audio community at large. In my opinion, his “method” is the most significant contribution to horn design made by anyone in recent times.
