Danny, Ian, et al- I don't know if you remember him, but I know the former Hill Audio US technical representative- Rick Rogers.

I haven't heard from him in a while, but last time I talked to him, he still lived in Tucker GA, just like he did when he worked with Hill. I actually bought a Renkus-Heinz-labelled Hill DX1500 from him, about 10 years ago- and I still use it now and then. He's still got a stash of them at his home, last time I checked.

The years haven't been very kind to him- he's had some pretty serious medical problems, but last time I heard from him, at least he was up and kicking...
 
Regards,
Gordon.

I remember Rick and I'm sorry to hear that he's had problems. I think I only met him the once when I went out to Atlanta and Dave Ash showed me around the facility but we spoke very often on the phone.

I haven't been on here for a while and it's interesting to see that some of the old gear is still around and stirring up mixed emotions!

Hi All!

After Live Aid '85 we've bought 72 pieces of M4 and 20 pieces of monitor wedges to Poland :) unfortunately none of them are "alive" :) 

But we still have 30 pieces of DX3000 ;) - still working with Martin Audio W8C. 

We also have 8 pieces of newer Hill cabinets - I don't know which model - they have 6x Low speakers, 2x Middle and 1x Horn. We also have very old Hill mixing desk and few monitors...

We knew Robert Lingfield very well - He was friend of my Father, was several times in Poland for a "business" meeting week :) great Man!

 +1, 72 M4 cabs would have been a very large chunk of the system at Wembley as I'm sure I read they used 52 per side plus a few more for infill.
