Very sad news, I always enjoyed reading his often forthright, but always honest posts and enjoyed/shared much of his musical taste.

That's shocking news. I always respected and enjoyed reading Sovereign's views and opinions, expressed both here and elsewhere. He will be missed.
Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?
I feel really sad to read this, Sovereign posted honestly without pretence, he had an extremely generous spirit praising others on their audio and worldly achievements.

Hugely upset by this news. I own his old Croft Pre-amp. It's now playing in his hounour. I'll be raising a glass of single malt. Great bloke.

Sad news indeed, never met James but heeded his advice on balanced mains units, very helpful and friendly guy.
My condolences to his family and friends.
