Anyone Know How DualCan Is Doing?

Post by TennesseeCherokee » 30 Oct 2019 04:12

Hello Fellow Audiophiles !
Several years ago, when I was rebuilding my Dual 1229, Klaus helped me many times. He is the walking encyclopedia of all machines made by Dual. His patience, understanding & knowledge is phenomenal. Klaus always answered my questions & gave me advice that could only be learned from a lifetime of experience & passion for these machines.
I tried to contact him via his website & saw his post that he was enduring health issues.
I've been a registered nurse most of my adult life & his post really concerns me.
If anyone knows how Klaus is doing, please let me know. If you prefer, Private Message me. If anyone is talking to him, please give him my regards & tell him that I appreciate all his time & help.
Also, please tell Klaus that all of us here at VinylEngine have him in our thoughts & we wish him a return to good health.
Thank you very much ~

Also thank you to Klaus the one time my wife and I went to Hamilton to meet him at his son's house. He did help us with our 1229 and was a total gentleman and a delight to be with.
We were both happy to be in his presence and he occupies a permenant kind space in my heart.
I hope he's alright.
Thank you Klaus.

Yes, I think we all miss him here and hope for a speedy return to good health...One thing I've noticed (and maybe others, too) is that when you help people, it does keep you young, even if only "young at heart", which Klaus has done here in spades...Hopefully, he knows how much we think of him here on VE! :) =D>

I would like to thank Klaus for all of his help and encouragement with my Dual turntables over the years and wish him well too. Klaus is one of those priceless treasures we have to be thankful for sharing his wisdom with us. =D>

I too would like to pass on my “Get Well Soon” wishes to Klause. Not taking anything away from the other Dual knowledge gurus here but Klause seemed to me the go to guy from his professional experience.

He’s helped me numerous times with problems and even supplied the odd part. From PM conversations, he seems to enjoy gardening.

So Klause, I hope you are diggin’ the dirt again with all possible speed.

Just to put an end to any further worries or rumours about Klaus.

He is fine but just very, very busy with home projects at the moment.
He hopes to be able to contribute to this site in the future after all that is behind him.

We must be telepathic or summat - I emailed Klaus yesterday and was told the same thing. He's still working on some other Dual-centred parts too and has definitely NOT given up on this brand in his retirement, thank gawd...

Awesome, Tink...Please let Klaus know how much he means to us here next time you talk to him! :D

Besides, tell him we're still waiting for new additions to the history of hi-fi...
