It is with rather great sadness that I read of Dr. Amar Bose's passing yesterday.  Say what you wish about Bose in relationship to Hi-Fi and high performance audio, the fact is that Dr. Bose, through his company, was responsible for quite a bit of engineering innovation across the spectrum, not just as it relates to music and Hi-Fi.  During a time when most folks didn't have a clue about audio playback, Dr. Bose was at the forefront of research and development and let's not forget to mention the launch of the 901 system, way back in the 1960's.  Just recently, whilst visiting a friend of mine, I had the chance to hear a ca. 1970's version of the 901 and was not only impressed with the sound, but was struck even more so by the fact that you were able to get that sort of sound quality back in the 60's.  Rest in peace.
