    Billionaire Ray Dolby invented the Dolby NR system. He was 80 years and he blinded me with science.

    Howard had the idea for Dolby sound years before Dolby.

    Kids these days are spoiled with high bit rate, CD-quality mp3s. Back in the day of cassette tapes Dolby B made a huge difference...unless your ears were so shot they didn't hear the hiss without it.

    It may have been a bigger hit if it had been recorded in Dubly. She was right.

    R.I.P. non-Thomas Dolby, although back in the day I don't know one person who pushed that dumb "Dolby" button on their cassette player unless they liked muffled sound with no high end.
