We would like to extend our deepest condolences to the Shindo family on hearing of Ken Shindo’s passing, following a brief illness at the age of 74.

I am personally grateful to have experienced my customers lives enriched by Ken Shindo’s creations, and I look forward to being involved in continuing Ken Shindo’s legacy in the coming years.

  2. So sorry to hear that. His products have given me more listening pleasure than anything I’ve ever owned. And his products and way of doing business have been a huge inspiration. Thank you SO MUCH Mr. Shindo. 😦

  3. Ken Shindo is one of the greats in HiFi. His products (this categorization of his creations of course falls short) are his legacy. Rarely have I owned a product that enriches my life on a daily basis and a product that stands up to the test of time (upgrade-itis). As a Shindo I owner I owe a great deal to Mr. Shindo. Thank you for the tempo, touch and timbre of music, but in the Shindo way. It truly captures the human condition. Ja mata Ken Shindo!

  4. I am a relative newcomer to Shindo electronics but, from my very first listen to the Masseto preamplifier, I had an immediate appreciation of the creative genius of Ken Shindo that has simply brought me closer to the music. Rest in peace Ken. My condolences to all the Shindo family.

  5. Sorry to hear that. Ken Shindo showed through his designs that he knew how to connect music lovers to the soul of music. He truly had the music mind. May he rest in peace.

  6. RIP Master.

    you made me discover the other side of the music. That it emotion, human presence, musical colors.

    Deepest sympathies to the family Shindo.

    Goodbye Master Shindo!

  7. Thank you to Shindo-san, you left a wonderful legacy by focusing on tools to help us bring music into our homes. My condolences to Mr. Shindo’s family and friends.

    Thank you Matt for helping so many of us in the US experience music through the Art of Shindo.

  8. We miss you, Ken Shindo! You died too young; it was not your time to leave us. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for changing our lives for the better. For introducing us to what you knew for so long, that reproduced music can exists in our minds, the “music mind.” You are sorely missed, Shindo-san. What glorious craftsmanship and art you created; what intense passion you procured when focus and determination is wrought upon a peaceful act, the art of Shindo Labs. In this time of mourning, we remember the great person you are. We have no doubt you have bestowed your family with your skills and talents so that your masterpieces will continue their fruition. Generations beyond ours will cherish the green artifacts with which you alone warmed up this Earth. Thank you, and wherever you are, in whatever form you continue to exist, our hearts go out to you. Nameste. – Bobby

  9. It is sad. But he left such a great legacy. And we honor him each time we listen to music from his products. Such a positive association. Who wouldn’t trade legacies?
