George was a very nice man. I also enjoyed my time with him. Knowing him a bit I would guess that he was at peace with his own mortality. RIP George.

What a huge loss for society, overall, and the audio industry in particular. I spoke with George on the phone a few times while looking into his top phono preamp. He was always kind, sincere, and incredibly helpful.
At a time when many companies are trying to push the envelope on cost/aesthetics, George preferred to go the other direction.
George was a true artisan...a man who had a passion to create and build quality products at affordable prices - an all-too-rare commodity these days. I own a WPP-200C, and the phone calls with him before that purchase revealed a man who loved what he did and was willing to share his time and knowledge with others.
He will TRULY be missed.
Howard this has actually brought tears to my eyes hearing this news. Just now (and after all of this time for some reason) I clicked on your profile to see what you have been up to and stumbled upon this sad news. I have been very satisfied with my sound as of late and a very good reason for that is George's amplifier that you so kindly guided me towards Howard. I will honor his life everytime i listen to music through them!!! Thank you for letting us know of his passing. Truly sad about hearing of his passing. But we are not built to last. Thank you so very much George!!!! Nam Myoho Renge Kyo!
