    What happened to Mr. Timbers? Did he retire, or start doing speakers somewhere else?

    Why did you know this news so late?
    I have a strong suggestion that someone may invite Mr.Timbers to set up a new brand hi-end speaker

While I don't need to work financially, I need to be active and challenged so I must figure out what makes sense for me going forward. To be clear, this is not what I wanted or deserved, but I will not comment further on details until a much later date. My decision, not theirs.It was a good run and I am very pleased that I have brought so many people enjoyment with the products I have developed over the last 4 decades. Once things settle down, I hope to be more available on the forum, but I need some time to adjust.My best wishes to all you JBL fans. Treat your products well and enjoy them while you can.Best Regards,Greg Timbers

    Maybe some smog between you and the screen scrambling it?
    Or the Chinese internet censoring interfering here? Are you sure you are reading the true untampered source?


    (yes, I wrote that in a haste on the phone, with some resulting spelling errors)

    I like all this good fun.

    I am waiting for someone from London to inform us all that none of us speak English, at least the Queens English.

    My best to all!

    If we knew what the hell we were doing, we wouldn't call it research would we.

    So the spelling is not the biggest problem for me...

    umm , when I watch the Beeb, CC gets turned on.

    It was rather funny in Hong Kong with the Chinese speaking perfect Queens English
