There's more to life than audio equipment... as bad as it may sound, the guy could have died in a car accident, had a drug overdose, been murdered, etc. Implying that him being gone from this pretentious hi-fi scene for years because he was getting 'flamed' by engineers is just plain stupid, short sighted, and arrogant.
Sorry, I woke up cranky. I'm sure YOU aren't stupid, and I mean no offense. It does frustrate me that it seems like anyone who dislikes that guy who made the O2 just assumes he ran away with his tail between his legs because of some trash talk he was receiving. I don't think that's the case, as he made the ODAC after lots of negative criticism, and was zealously working on the ODA when he disappeared. Honestly, I think something happened to him.
