    Review: HAD Audiolab Maestral II

    Sad News to report.  We received word today that last night Drazen Markesic passed away.  He was 45 and leaves behind his wife Amelie and son, George.  He was not know to be ill, and his passing comes as a shock to all.   No further information is known at this time.
