JKent Posted June 7, 2016 Report Share Posted June 7, 2016 It is very sad to report the passing of CSP member and great guy, George Grand (aka ToastedAlmond). Robert (ra.ra.) made note of it here: But I think George should be featured in a separate thread. Apparently our friends at AK knew first and there are many comments (8 pages so far and worth reading), and a link to the obit here: http://audiokarma.org/forums/index.php?threads/r-i-p-george-grand-aka-toasted-almond.713396/ I met George a few years ago when he sold me a pair of AR-2ax's. I picked them up at his house and he showed me his converted garage "man cave" with a fantastic system built around some Carver Amazing loudspeakers. He had other nice speakers--I spied some AR-9s in his living room. Sadly, his hearing had been compromised by decades around jet airplanes, serving in the Air National Guard, but he still appreciated good music and good equipment. A few years later I bought a pair of AR-3s from him, very cheap btw, and learned that he donated all of the money from equipment sales to a school for children with special needs. Most recently I bought an AR receiver from him. He had a lot of other cool stuff for sale but I restrained myself. In those few face-to-face meetings I found George to be a warm, modest man who shared our love of classic audio gear but had many more facets to his personality. I'm sorry I didn't get to know him better but he was a truly terrific man. He will be missed. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
