Audio magazine History

The first issue of Audio Engineering was in May 1947. It featured Norman Pickering on the cover. Early issues were devoted entirely to the audio and broadcast engineer, but with the emergence of the audio enthusiast, the magazine began to publish some hobbyist-related articles as well.

After the founding of the Audio Engineering Society in 1948 and publication of the AES journal that started in 1952, Audio Engineering became even more devoted to the audio hobbyist. In the October issue the magazine offered a life subscription. For $25.00 you could subscribe for the rest of your natural life.  At that time the magazine was selling for 35 cents per copy. January 1954 was the last issue with the title Audio Engineering on the cover. After that it was just plain Audio. In 1966, the magazine had moved to 134 North 13th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19107. More information about the magazine's history can be found in the May anniversary issues for 1957, 1962, 1967, 1972, 1977, 1982, 1987, 1992 and 1997.

Audio Auricles

In the June 1984 issue a new category was added under the Equipment Profiles called "Auricle" and does not include measurements. The editor states: "This is the first appearance of both a new column and a new reviewer, Anthony H. Cordesman. Though breaking our tradition of listening backed by careful measurements, we are adding the column in an attempt to discuss more of the truly worthwhile gear available, with less delay than a full-scale review might take. Mr. Cordesman intends to concentrate principally on "high end" gear; other reviewers will probably also contribute to "Auricle." We must emphasize that we still believe in the ultimate worth of measurements; however, we have long felt the need in these pages for something in between a "New Products" mention and a complete "Equipment Profile." We invite your commentary on this column. E.P." [The Auricles reviews follow after the word Auricles in the listing].

“Sineward” Distortion  in High Fidelity Amplifiers

This is an interesting article by John W. Campbell, Jr. published in Audio magazine, November 1961. The ear hears music as wave forms rather than sine waves according to this author, a science fiction editor. Whether science or science fiction, the argument is thought provoking. John was the author of the story Who Goes There? Published in August 1938 in Astounding Science Fiction. That story was later made into a movie titled The Thing from Outer Space (1951) and was later remade as The Thing (1982) directed by John Carpenter.


Beware of the Lirpa (April spelled backwards) and Elekt-O-Fonie reviews. These appear in some April (fools) issues and are really humorous--nothing you would want to believe, though.

There was a cover error for the May 1969 issue. It says May 1968, but inside it is May 1969.

The December 1993 issue was published as volume 11 but should have been volume 12. The November issue is correctly numbered volume 11.

The July-August 1999 Volume 83 No. 7 issue is combined.

The February-March 2000 Volume 84 No. 2 issue is combined and was the last publication of Audio.
