WADIA Founder, Don Wadia Moses Dies

In sad news for both the audio industry and those who knew the man personally, sonic innovator Don Wadia Moses, who founded the highly-respected (especially in audiophile circles) WADIA brand, died on November 29, 2008.

Audiophiles know and appreciate the WADIA brand name and its audio legacy but Don's legacy reaches far deeper than his ground-breaking work in the audiophile field. Don was instrumental in creating DSL in the 1970's. He developed Spread Spectrum Phone Technology patents that ushered in cordless and cell phones. He created Compact Disc oversampling to greatly improve CD sound quality. Don achieved the first successful implementation of large scale, professional wireless audio with his Mongoose system and accomplished many more things while at Cray Research, 3M, Wadia Digital and Music Sciences.

Don requested those wishing to honor his memory:  "In this season of gatherings, family and reflection, please give to CaringBridge. Your gift helps connect family and friends when they need it most." http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/donmoses
