Reminiscences on Siegfried
In Memoriam: Siegfried Linkwitz, 19352018
Siegfried Linkwitz was a rare combination
of music lover who could hear analytically, and an engineer
who could design, measure and interpret the performance of loudspeakers.
He contributed much more than his well-known crossover topology.
He created novel loudspeaker designs and candidly reported on
their performance in objective and subjective terms. He respected
the scientific method. His insights and observations will be
My name is Dr Frank
Brenner. A few months before his passing in 2017, Siegfried
Linkwitz handed to me the "keys" to his audio business
and research. I am sure you are aware what Siegfried Linkwitz
contributed to the audio world. If not, and for those in the
know, please join us for an opportunity to explain why the
latest version (revision) of the Linkwitz open baffle LX521
is getting rave reviews. It is the reference speaker system
to own, (https://linkwitz.store/product/lx521/).
It has new low distortion drivers, and a re-designed analog
active crossover with power amps. The resulting speaker system
sounds truly exceptional!
As pilot at Lufthansa
German Airlines, I could exchange ideas with Siegfried regularly
during my San Francisco stopovers. We became good friends,
and I turned into a devotee of his open approach
to loudspeaker sound and engineering approach. I´m continuing
his amazing acoustic research and his concept of designing
the speaker most capable of reproducing live sound
in your home.
