    Old time Hi-Fi magazines ..

    Post by Bob Latino on Thu Jul 17, 2014 8:20 pm

    Someone Emailed me about this and I believe that we had an older post on the forum here about these older Hi-Fi magazines. I cannot find the original post so I am posting the link again. For the folks that support this forum you can download early issues of Audio, HiFi Stereo Review and High Fidelity magazines from 1952 through 1962 that have been archived at the link below. It makes for good reading. I can remember well reading some of these mags in high school when I should have been doing my homework and stuffing the mag quickly under the bed when I heard my mother approaching - lol ..

    Good stuff!

    I still got a bunch of them salvaged in a dumpster dive behind the local TV repair shop way back when.

    I keep meaning to read them again, but I tend to be distracted by the piles of Playboy and Penthouse stored next bin over ...  clown

    I've found that when I come across one of those old magazines, I can spend hours (literally) reading it while new issues of Stereophile (which subscription I finally dropped) keep me occupied for little longer than one session on the toilet.

    This may reflect the relative amount of content. After a month, with some exceptions (some turntable rebuild articles by Art Dudley stand out), the Stereophiles get donated to a local charity shop. The old Audio, High Fidelity, etc. get filed, safely.
