    Justcuz has brought to my attention that AK member Trnsfmr has passed on. There is a notification on the front page of the QRXRestore.com website. Jim was a avid Sansui fan and a valuable, helpful member of this community. He will be missed. As many of you know he worked with his two sons and apparently they will continue his Sansui restoration business.

    I don't know any of the details but it looks like he hasn't posted since mid January. Up to that point his posts didn't seem to reveal anything unusual.

    So lets turn up the volume on your favorite Sansui audio equipment and give him a true Sansui Send Off.

    - Pete

    So sad to hear this. Jim's love of Sansui gear was infectious and he was a fount of knowledge that can never be replaced. My heart goes out to his family and may he rest in peace.
