"With Dr. Bose's passing away, we have lost one of the most prolific audio champions whose contribution and influence to the industry are beyond measure. His absence will create a vacuum which is not easy to fill. In my personal and professional capacity, I submit my highest admiration and respect. Long live his legacy and long live his determination to innovate."
