    I think a quick clip...showing every eligible name going into a hat (or something appropriate) and watching names being pulled out for each winning item...would make it fair and entertaining!

    ...really! I can think of better entertainments and I'm sure Flo will have better things to do with his time! :LOL:

    I've no doubt that Flo will be fair and tbh it is totally random so there can't be any bias one way or the other. ;)

    I've just realised there is one name missing off the list... yours Flo! :lol:

    I believe you were the first to try it. ;)

    Just an FYI...the Hellborg that toured the US did NOT have a manual, so there were no signatures. Didn't have a power cable either...that's the way it was shipped to me from he NYC showroom.

    Agreed! :)...but because Florin IS an honest, great guy, i believe HE wants to go out of his way to make sure there's no way to question the results...as his post suggested by asking about online options. It can be a tough position to be in...giving away very desirable, awesome, expensive equipment amongst his friends. He just wants to get it right...no worries :)

    Actually I think it is a nice idea, and really, writin some names on a paper and puttin them in a hat is not much at all :)

    Well, I have my own one, hahaha!

    Don't worry Gerry... The question is - do we have guys that tested the preamp but never wrote a review? If yes - should they have a chance to win?

    LOOOL! And actually there is a good chance for the same person to win again. :)

    I wish everybody best of luck!!!

    P.S. - still waiting for you to tell me if I left someone outside.

    Thanks guys!

    It's got one now. (Since I had to go buy one) I'll tape it to the box if I have to. Hopefully she's home with me though! I've had it so long I dunno if I can give it up. ;)

    Is this OK?

    Lucky that I am on a training course today and it starts a bit later than my normal day... added to which I'd be a bit 'distracted' at work. Now I MUST stop from coming back and checking that it was my name that was drawn out! LOL

    Laters.
