A couple of milestones for the audiophiles..
Ray Dolby passed away at his home in San Francisco.
Whilst he is likely better known by many today for the DTS system used to provide the audio in most movie theatres one of his major achievements was the Dolby Noise reduction System that made the sound quality of cassette tapes acceptable to the more serious listener.
Another milestone.. the humble Compact Cassette that Mr Dolby's work made into a true music medium also celebrated it's 50th birthday on Sept 13.
While on the subject of milestones .. another legendary figure for many audiophiles, Amar G Bose passed away this past July..
