A great quality amp!!  Time owned: more than 12 months
I'd never really had a chance to own a Henry Amplifier until over a year ago. Id listened to the stories of how well they were constructed and how well they worked but never experienced it first hand. I bought this amp not knowing if it was working or not, but it was in real nice shape. I had some issues with it initially(resoldered a loose wire) but that has been it. Its a great amplifier. It is really built like a tank and it puts out the legal limit. I have the chinese 3-500z's in it and they work great. It is a difficult to find replacement meters for these things so be very careful when you move it around. Also be sure to oil the fan from time to time. I find my fan isnt real noisy but it may have not been run a lot either. One thing I have noticed was fan noise seems to be amplified if the amp isnt leveled extremely accurately. I dont know if thats just in my case or not. I can really recommend this amp if you find one.
