Richard Hardesty: A Memorial

I have known Dick Hardesty since the days when he owned Havens and Hardesty Audio. He was a great teacher and diligent writer.

I asked Dick to join Widescreen Review as a Contributing Editor and our Technical Audio Editor. His contributions were always leading-edge articles and reviews. Dick was an inspiring individual during his years with us. We called him Dr. Boom. His greatest contribution to Widescreen Review was The Essential Subwoofer Buyer's Guide, which is still in demand to this day.

I was saddened when he left us to pursue his own digital publishing. Dick's service and friendship will always be remembered and cherished. Rest in peace.

Gary Reber

We would like to present Richard Hardesty's seminal WSR series—Subwoofers: Presenting The Fundamentals—for all to remember

Reason #49 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:

Reading Widescreen Review for the past four years has been a liberating experience for me. Issue after issue you continue to write the most intelligent, full depth, and logical reviews and you do not pull any punches. I've bought many of my home theatre items after reading about them in WSR, and I must say they perform exactly as you have written in your reviews. I'll be a customer for a long, long time. Thanks for a great magazine.
