Selfless, Audio professionals, who help us improve are life of listening to music.
It is with the greatest sadness, that I must inform my fellow audio
enthusiasts. That one of the greatest and most impactful members of our
fraternity has passed on.
He was the Manager of Fidelis A/V ( audio / video ) in Nashua, N.H. And touched the lives of many of us.
Bill Henk, was without a doubt, the kindness supportive, and most
willing, to volunteer his time and share his vast knowledge with audio
enthusiasts of all levels.
He knew more about audio than most of us will ever learn. And though he
was an expert he never made you feel that you were not. He
enthusiastically welcomed every person he contacted to embrace all
aspects of the hobby we all love.
His love of music was obvious, and his life long endeavor. To assist all
who heard the clarion call of High Fidelity audio. He would spend as
much time as needed, patiently listening, to any and all questions. And
most valuable of all, he provided valuable advice, on how you could
improve your listening experience.
He was not interested in making money, he was more interested in sharing
the experience of listening to music in the way it could best be
achieved in a home environment.
Over his career, he undoubtedly directly, and indirectly, touched the
lives of thousands of people. How many goosebumps owe their propagation
to his well crafted advice.

Bill, treated all equally, he valued the enthusiasm of the potential audio buyer, more than their buying power.
Bill's business in life was being involved in the human experience, and
his fellow man. Sharing a cultural art form with as many people as

about his personal service, and the dedicated individuals who have

Audiophiles can be hard to please. Just think about that if it was your
job to do so. It can't be easy.
Make me, and all of us in this fraternity of Audio, be proud of our
humanity. Sell a set of interconnects to a friend or a component that is
just sitting unused. Take that money and donate some money to Bill's
Call a fellow audio friend and share a story about Bill that you fondly
remember. Listening to audio alone can be an enjoyable experience,
listening to audio with a good friend can be priceless.
What does a day of golfing cost you, or skiing, or other hobby. How many
hours, days, months, and yes, years have we enjoyed Bill's assistance
