    The passing of a legend, a true icon. Whenever I pick up a copy of TAS I will think of Harry

    Re: Legend Harry Pearson has died - RIP

    Harry and TAS started me into the high end, back in the mid '70's when I bought Issue 6 of TAS on a local newstand. Within a couple of years I had bought a pair of Magnepan 2167-F's the predecessor to the Magnepan II's. More important, I started collecting and listening to the TAS SuperDiscs, a journey that took me 30 years to get a complete set (with 600 records!). Harry introduced me to Mercuries, RCA Living Stereo, Lyrita, EMI and, of course, Decca, and many other great labels.

    He and Gordon Holt weaned me away from Stereo Review, Hi Fidelity and Audio. I still have all of the small format TAS issues starting with Issue 6.

    Thank you Harry.

    Goodbye to a true legend, I hope he finds the sound he's always wanted.

    Get into the Music, not the equipment. The equipment is a vehicle into the music.
