Ken, Theda and I send our deepest sympathies to you, your mother and the rest of your family. Your father's history in the speaker industry speaks for itself. What may not be as well known was the true gentleman Bill was. I've never had a greater pleasure than working with and for your father and representing your fine products. Our prayers go out to the entire Phase Technology family.

Very sorry to hear about the passing of your dad. I had the pleasure of meeting him for the first time at United Speakers in 1979. I can still recall how passionate your dad was about speaker design. The audio community has lost a true industry pioneer.
