I have received the following message from Brian's wife Shirley.

"Brian Cheney passed last night.  He was a wonderful husband, loving father, great speaker designer, and audiophile.  A sincere thank you to all friends and customers who enriched his life. 
 
Brian's Wife,
Shirley Cheney"

I am saddened by his passing, as I always enjoy and respect those who speak their mind, stick to their guns, and know what they're doing.

Shirley's e-mail to me was appropriately titled: BRIAN'S SONG so I have retitled this post the same.

    • Never go to a psychiatrist, adopt a straycat or dog. On the street they live only two years average.
Sad news for we audiophiles and to his friends.
RIP

Very sad news indeed.  I'm especially glad that I had the pleasure of speaking to him (by phone) just a couple of months ago, when he sounded his usual enthusiastic self.

As I said in the other thread, I was worried that his long hospital stay was not good news.  :(   Thoughts and prayers are with his family.  Brian broke the mold; he was what makes finding new friends such an enriching experience.  Rest In Peace Brian.

This is very unfortunate. Although I never owned or heard VMPS speakers, I always heard accolades about them from show goers. Irrespective, the loss of a loved one is very difficult to bear. A deep loss to our small audiophile community.

RIP Brian,

Anand.
