Crown’s Gerald Stanley To Receive AES Fellowship Award

ELKHART, Indiana – December 2007 — Crown International proudly announces that Gerald Stanley, the company’s senior vice president of research, has just been selected by the Audio Engineering Society’s awards committee and board of governors to receive the distinguished AES Fellowship Award in 2008.

According to AES Secretary Han Tendeloo, Stanley’s award for “significant contributions to power amplifier design and electronic networking of communications systems” will be presented in San Francisco next October during the 125th AES Convention, which also marks the Society’s 60th anniversary year.

“I was surprised and humbled to receive the offer to become an AES Fellow not having been highly absorbed in regular Society activities,” notes Stanley. “There have been a number of technical presentations made to the local chapters over a period of many years and an occasional conference paper, but not the level of AES involvement that is typical of a number of my ‘Fellow’ friends. And although awards presentations are often associated with doing something difficult or heroic, I consider myself fortunate to soon be recognized for simply doing what I’ve always considered fun.”

Originally joining Crown in 1964 as a tape recorder line technician, draftsman, and amplifier design engineer, Stanley is today widely considered pro audio’s foremost authority in power amplifier design. Highly respected for his work on the original DC 300 back in 1967, Stanley has been responsible for many of Crown’s most successful products over the years, including the Macro-Tech, K, CTs and I-Tech Series. During his prolific 43-year tenure with Crown, he has also been integral in the design of a wide array of other products, including tape recorders, signal processors, magnetic resonance gradient amplifiers (for MRI machines), and semiconductor and audio test equipment, including the original TEF analyzers.

As an AES Fellow, Stanley joins a select list of honored industry luminaries, including Soundcraft’s Graham Blyth (awarded in 2007), JBL’s Doug Button and Mark Gander, Harman/Becker Automotive Systems’ Don Keele and Richard Small, and Harman Consumer Group’s Ulrich Horbach (formerly with Studer), David Griesinger (of Lexicon fame), and Floyd Toole (now retired).
