    Who built 2 anechoic chambers in Los Angeles recently?

    The answer is Samsung.

    Allan Devantier, who left Harman/JBL in 2013, heads up this operation.

    If I'm not mistaken a few folks left JBL to join his team.

    ***

    LOL, if even mentions that in the article.

    "Companies such as Harman (where Devantier and many others at the lab worked), DTS, ELAC America and many others call the City of Angels home."

    I thought it was weird that SO posted about a job opening at JBL the day after GT was fired and it was for an Intern. Anyway, whatever...

    I certainly hope it all works out well for Allan and friends!

    Impressive article,thanks! The facility seems poised to pick up the mantle. I wonder if Greg and Jeff could at the least have consulting roles there.

    Jerry Moro is now the "principal engineer-transducers" at Samsung Research America.

    Way to go JBL.

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

    Awesome! I was hoping he would get hired there.

    That is great news.

    Don't feel too bad, I understand young people make mistakes too.

    These do bear some resemblance to the JBL 590:

    I just discovered the following website and this article posted on June 4th seems a little late to the party:

    Almost like it was written in a perspective of someone involved in this forum. Could not find any names associated with the site or Blogs, though.

    wowzers...

    who'd a thunk it...

    good news, I agree...

    I heard that Panasonic has penned a deal here in Denver for it's U.S. sales and engineering hub...
    I think I heard that it is more related to "smart city" type tech....

    glad to see the US investments....
