John Sunier — 1937 – 2018

by | Jan 18, 2018 | Special Features

After a glorious career in Audio of over half a century, John Sunier passed away in January of this year.

John’s incredible energy and drive found a distinctive expression in Audiophile Audition.  Starting as a radio show in the 1980s, it transformed into a web site as the 21st century unfolded.  Sunier was recognized far and wide as a definitive expert in all matters audio, all matters for audiophiles.

In the last year of his life, John stepped back from his beloved web site, assuming more of a Professor Emeritus role there.  He was navigating the challenges of advancing years with the warmth and support of his friends; he was well cared for.

John Sunier is survived by his wife Donna, his cat Melinda, and the memories held by all those who knew him—his colleagues, his friends, and his following throughout the Internet.  He will be deeply missed.


Audiophile Audition is creating a collection pictures and reflections honoring the life of John Sunier.
