RIP mr dolby.
From sky news,
"To be an inventor, you have to be willing to live with a sense of uncertainty, to work in the darkness and grope toward an answer, to put up with the anxiety about whether there is an answer," Mr Dolby once said.

I think he deserve front page news at whathifi
Gonna have to admit that I didn't realise he was stil with us to start with, cos in my mind I had him much older than 80. Must've only been 30-odd then when he came up with Dolby A. What a legacy though.
