(November 23, 1935 – September 11, 2018)


September 11, 2018 (San Francisco Bay Area): On this day, we have lost an industry giant. Renowned audio industry veteran Siegfried Linkwitz passed away in his Sea Ranch residence on September 11, 2018 after battling prostate cancer at the age of 82. Linkwitz was the co-inventor of the Linkwitz-Riley filter widely adopted by the audio industry.

A San Francisco Bay Area resident, Siegfried Linkwitz attended the California Audio Show more than once, and his LX Mini were exhibited at the show in 2017 to noted repute; it was voted by attendees to receive the Best Value Component Award.

The Linkwitz’s moved to Sea Ranch in recent years, a northern suburb of the Bay Area and became a neighbor of Nelson Pass. I visited his previous home in the Marin County years before founding the show in 2010 and listened to his Pluto speakers. The hospitality of him and Mrs. Linkwitz is fondly remembered.

Linkwitz’s work can be further studied at his website, Linkwitz Lab.
