I took a yard sale Heathkit to him to rebuild so I got to visit the shop a few times.  It was a great experience.  He really knew his stuff and was very generous with sharing his knowledge with an inexperienced audio fan (me)

RIP Don Polito

That is sad news.  I've only talked to him a few times and was indeed very generous with his time and knowledge. He helped me diagnose a faulty power supply in a cheap vacuum tube amp. He spent an hour testing the transformer and then sold me a replacement for 20 bucks.  Sad to hear of his passing.

Van Halen was only 65.

Unfortunately, also RIP Johnny Nash.
