I learned more about hi-fi in one hour with Julian Vereker than I did with almost all other designers/engineers combined in my life. He was an original.

A HiFi hero and a pioneer.

I'm really sorry I never met him.

It’s great to see him looking totally contented with life sitting in the cathedral just about to make a recording. The Nait 1 in particular will always be considered a design classic, ensuring that he’ll never be forgotten.

Met him once at CES in the mid 80's. Just a genius. I still enjoy an Olive Naim system as my office setup.

A true visionary, whose interest was the reproduction of music (which you'd think would be the norm for Hi-Fi, but, IME, isn't),

I'm still using JV era Naim to this day, in preference to anything else that I've heard (including modern Naim).

Sadly, I never had the pleasure of meeting the great man, who left us far too soon. :-(

I am the happy owner of a Nait 5 and a Brompton S2 so I have two very good reasons to thank Mr Vereker.

I wish Naim had been a part of my musical journey. Everything I've read was positive - Mr. Vereker has left a great legacy.

My audio journey went from Eagle, Sugden, Cyrus to Linn. I feel like I missed out on Naim.
Creativity is intelligence having fun.
