The audio industry mourns the passing of Jeremy Kipnis, member of the press for, The High Fidelity Report, Positive Feedback, Theo’s Roundtable and Widescreen Review. Jeremy was also the record producer at Epiphany Recordings Ltd. and CEO at Kipnis Studio Standard.

Jeremy is survived by his wife, Carolina.

I met Jeremy at the 2017 California Audio Show, and have been in constant contact ever since. We were having dialogues to figure a way for him to come the show this year. Jeremy drowned while swimming this past weekend.

Steven Rochlin of, a longtime friend of Jeremy’s, have the following to offer in Jeremy’s Facebook page:

‘It deeply saddens me to report that Jeremy Kipnis (1965-2019, pictured with Tim de Paravicini), passed away Saturday July 20th. As a longtime member of the press, reviewer for and many other magazines, Jeremy also created Kipnis Studio Standard (KSS) Home Theaters. “Because time is your most precious commodity, Kipnis Studio Standard (KSS) Home Theaters are by far the best way to experience movies, television, or any other audio / visual media you may imagine,” says his website, “It maximizes every viewing and listening moment, delivering the most impact and enjoyment possible. A KSS Home Theater is entertainment time spent as you’ve always imagined it.” His loving wife Carolina Kipnis posted on Facebook that her husband and love of her life had passed. Saturday afternoon he went for his usual swim in Lake Carmel, and was found later in the lake. We all send our prayers and best wishes to the Kipnis family and their many friends within the audio / video community.’

    Jeremy Kipnis pushed the art & craft of the home theatre to new heights.
    He was always very helpful with help and advice on my film projects.
    The best thing about Jeremy was his enthusiasm & imagination.
    I will miss him.

  3. Dr. Ralph S. Welsh says:

    I served on the Redding, CT School Board with Jeremy’s mother, Judy, enjoyed the harpsichord masterwork of Jeremy’s father in live concerts, drove Jeremy to school in a carpool, and mourned the death of his two brilliant parents. Jeremy followed in the footsteps of two remarkable parents. They are all gone, now. How sad.

  4. Heartbreaking. Jeremy was a great friend. He is sadly missed. Our condolences to Carolina and Jeremy’s family.

  5. Dear Carolina,
    Jeremy was a kind man, adventurous soul, and passionate mind. The Kipnis trio will always be dear to our hearts.
    With love and sympathy, Arthur Fiacco and Kent Tritle

    Jeremy was such a positive force and a great person. Thinking about his scope of work and the fact he always found time to help me out.

  7. William Charlton says:

    We met on facebook and after several years was invited to a party at his house in Redding. He was as generous as people have already mentioned and so was Caroline. We were treated to his latest projects and a wonderful meal from Stew Leonard’s. The big system was hard to describe, as it could overwhelm you. However, it seemed that he spent as much time with us as he could and was gracious and extremely knowledgeable in recording and the reproduction of audio. I will miss him and our conversations that we had through the years.

  8. Jeremy used to work at Farifield Hills Hospital when I was a patient there. He was one of my assigned psych techs. He was a very caring person. He always put his patients at the hospital first. He will be greatly missed.
