Mr. Johnson started his audio business by modifying David Hafler's ST70 and Pas3 much as some of our friends here like Joseph Esmillia.
Immediately his products gained prominence and so he established Audio Research Corporation which is one of the HiEnd industry leaders
for many years.
During the onslaught of the solid state design, he adhered to the tube sound, being vindicated by the now accepted thinking that tube sounds better.
In his retirement, he continued to work with the many young and talented engineers at ARC thus the sound quality renains the same.
He will be remember together with the other greats like Marantz, Hedgeman, Kloss, Hafler and Scott.
