RIP Charles Hansen of Ayre

I always appreciated his work. My Herbie Hancock Pono sounds amazing.

Very sad indeed. Much too young to depart this world. My Ayre AX-5 Twenty Integrated is an amazing piece of audio gear. Thank you Charles for the music.

RIP Mr. Charles Hansen.

This is sad news. Charles was a fighter, both for his health and his passion for audio.

+1 from me, Charles seemed like a really nice kind of guy

I do happen to be an Ayre user but that’s incidental really

Yeah, when I was playing around with up-sampling with SoX and Logitech Media Server, he gave up an hour of his time to call me in the UK to chat about up-sampling. He was passionate about (good) audio.
