Terry DeWick has passed

I just read in another forum that Terry DeWick has passed. May he rest in peace. 


I never had the pleasure of talking to Terry, or having him service my equipment, but I've dealt with his partner Tom Manley and he's a standout guy as well.

I talked to Terry a few years ago when he first retired. I had a problem with one of my McIntosh MC30s and he helped me out through several lengthy phone calls. He always had time for fellow audiophiles, no matter what. That’s the kind of person he was. He had a tremendous amount of knowledge and a big heart and helped hundreds in this hobby. He was a true legend and will sorely missed. RIP.

I had only email communications with him. He was quick to respond helpfully. A good man indeed. 

I hadn’t heard of him until now. What stands out in this discussion is the very positive impact he had on others. We are in short supply of upstanding people of character and skill. My sincere condolences to all of those who knew him.

I bought from Tom Manley. One of the items (MC2002) had a fuse/power problem. Tom provides a warranty but it had expired. I shipped it to Terry on Tom’s direction. I couldn’t believe how little he wanted to fix it. It was an altogether pleasant transaction. I later found out Terry was a renowned McIntosh tech. RIP.
