Guest Book Highlights

May 14, 2013 "Romy and Eddie tok me into their lives in 1968, and became my family in Woodstock while I studied at the Art Students League and UCCC. I assisted Ed with drawings for his papers, and have enjoyed many years of friendship with him and Romy. I am grateful for the time in my life when we were close, I learned so much from both Ed and Romy. To this day I carry them close to my heart. My love to Romy, Miriam, and Mark." - Suzette Green (West Palm Beach, FL)
January 14, 2012 "Eddy and Rome, I will allways be thinking
of both of you, how my family was treated
while I took care of Eddy. We all miss both of you" - Rivers Burke (centerburg, OH)
December 20, 2011 "While I never had the honor or pleasure of knowing Mr. Villchur personally, he was someone whose accomplishments I truly admired. My AR2ax and LST2 speakers and XA turntable brought me immense pleasure and opened up the world of music reproduction for me. My career in electronics came about because of my audio equipment interests.

I offer my sincere condolences to Mr. Villchur's family" - Paul Stiles (Mountain View, CA)
November 25, 2011 "I first met Ed Villchur at the Grand Central Station booth with his
assistant, a delightful lady called Sunshine Trankler. This have been around 1962 when his speakers were the talk of the audio world and all my colleagues in advertising wanted them. Apart from his erudition, Ed had a wonderful sense of humor and spending an hour or two each week at that stand was very valuable. Without being a close friend I kept in touch with him for a while before returning to England. I always wanted to visit him
In Woodstock, but never did. A closer friend who I saw frequently
was Sid Smith, the Marantz designer, who died 10 years ago. Both he and Ed Villchur enriched the lives of so many music lovers, besides being warm caring people with great talent. They
helped to create magic in sound reproduction and should never
be forgotten." - Peter Whitelam (Hong Kong ... and ..., NY)
November 20, 2011 "I first met Ed Villchur at the Grand Central Station booth with his
assistant, a delightful lady called Sunshine Trankler. This must have been about 1962 and, apart from his obvious erudition, I was impressed by Ed's marvelous sense of humor. Working at an advertising agency on Madison Avenue, some of my best lunch times were spent at Ed's AR booth. A closer friend who I saw frequently was Sid Smith, the Marantz designer, who died 10 years ago. Both he and Ed Villchur enriched the lives of so many music lovers, besides being warm caring people with great talent. They helped to create magic in sound reproduction and should never
be forgotten." - Peter Whitelam (Hong Kong ... and ..., NY)
