If you, like me, has been on forums concerning hi-fi for the last 10 years or so, there is a tiny little chance that you might have read the name John Iverson somewhere. The context might be different, maybe it is concerning the rare and seldom seen Electro Research gear. Maybe someone is posting about the build quality of the Marantz 250… or was it the Model 33? Whatever the case, if there is an opportunity to mention it, John Iverson’s mystery disappearance comes up, along with tales of his amazing ingenuity.
But who was this guy? From the small amount of testimonials one can read, he seems like an absolute genius, but was it just fueled by the mystery concerning his disappearance?
