From the Wright Sound home page:
Dear Wright Sound Customers and Friends,
It is with great sadness that we report that George Wright went home to be with the Lord on August 21, 2009. He is celebrating with those who have gone on before him and we will see him again one day.
George's passing means the end of Wright Sound company. He was the brillance behind the equipment. Without him, there is no company. Those of you who knew George know that he had a passion for tube equipment and he truly was gifted in electronics. He will be sorely missed for his humor and his incredible knowledge about all things tube related.
To all of our customers over the years, George would like to say thanks. It was a heck of a ride and he enjoyed sharing his passion for music with you.
Take care, live life to the fullest, and be blessed.
George Wright (son)
There are some Units that George had built for sale before he went into the hospital. They have all been checked out and are ready for sale. Check out out close out page to see what is available.
Never heard of him before, so I did some Googling. Looks like he had a preference for Williamson-type designs, and made the gain stage after the cathodyne a differential.
Not to be a forum jumper, but this is what Doc Bottlehead had to say:
George was an all-around great guy, blessed with both ability and passion. His phono preamp remains one of my most admired designs of all time - I *still* don't know how he could make a profit on it!
