    “Nothing discloses real character like the use of power. It is easy for the weak to be gentle. Most people can bear adversity. But if you wish to know what a man really is, give him power. This is the supreme test. It is the glory of Lincoln that, having almost absolute power, he never abused it, except on the side of mercy.”

    “You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police ... yet in their hearts there is unspoken fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts: words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home -- all the more powerful because forbidden -- terrify them. A little mouse of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic.”

    There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself. -- Johann Sebastian Bach.

    “There's a war out there, old friend. A world war. And it's not about who's got the most bullets. It's about who controls the information. What we see and hear, how we work, what we think... it's all about the information!”

    Pity there wasn't a larger turnout, but there were some excellent amps there, and by having Will there you had one of the UK's most respected valve amp engineers present so still a very good event, wish I could have been there.

    I wanted to comment on Will's pre amp as I heard it a while ago, in fact I suspect my old RCA 6SN7GTs might still be in it unless Will has switched them.

    It was the best pre amp I think I've heard, I asked my friend who was borrowing it off Will to ask him if he would sell it to me but unfortunately he had other plans for it.
