Craig Hill, one of the original founders of ONIX AUDIO in 1984 who sold the first ever ONIX Amplifiers in his fathers shop " Brighton Hifi " sadly passed away in January 2022. Our condolences are with his family.
We would like to acknowledge the efforts that Craig put in to ONIX AUDIO during the early years . He was not directly involved in the design of the OA21 but had crucial input in to what it became by virtue of his enthusiasm for it . He and his fathers shop were a major contributor to early sales until he left in ONIX 1986 . He loved HIFI and vinyl ,
and loved talking to magazine editors, he did this with passion and enthusiasm that made them listen to him . He went on to support his belief in ONIX, when he set his own shop up in Southampton as he continued to sell ONIX products .
All too often the history of ONIX has been distorted by so many along the way , but those early years are what made ONIX AUDIO and the OA21 so loved by so many . It took a team of people of which Craig was one . Although our principle owner has not be in contact with Craig for some time , we all acknowledge he was crucial to ONIX AUDIO and its place in history .
If there is another life, we have no doubt HIFI will play a role for him there. RIP Craig.
