Admirable man…
70 isn’t really that old, but there aren’t any guarantees.
Prayers of comfort to the bereaved in the time of their loss.

Sad to know that... didn't know him but I think, in the past years, I've purchased a couple manuals from his website which I couldn't find anywhere else.
And, yes, 70 something is a bit too early to go.

R.I.P.

Yes. Didn't know him personally but I purchased a couple or three manuals from him over the years. He had a good operation.

Wishing his family peace at this time.

I did a little bit of business with him and spoke to him on occasion but 70 is too young to go I would say. He was always a fair and honerable person to me. RIP Rick.

That's very sad to hear. I've purchased several manuals from Rick and they are top notch. He had a immense collection of original copies in great condition to reproduce and if he had more than one copy he would sell those too. Rest in peace Rick.

Thanks Lee for news.

Thanks for letting us know, Lee. Sad to hear of Rick passing away. His business was invaluable to the audio buffs looking for the rare literature for their audio components.

Sure, I would appreciate a copy of the "History Of Rock."

Nando.
