High Fidelity Magazine

Equipment Reviews Part 2

If you're looking for a copy of a review, I can supply one for $6.00 including postage in the USA. Five or more reviews ordered at one time are $5.00 each. (This is for a copy of one review only and not the whole magazine). A review generally runs two pages and sometimes includes advertising on the same page. Some years are not complete but I have most of the issues. You can use the edit and find on page feature of your web browser to look for specific items. Email to rogerr4@earthlink.net

High Fidelity

High Fidelity magazine began in 1950 and ran until 1988 when they closed down. I have only one issue from 1954 and the rest goes from 1961 to the last issue in 1988.

HF reports policy May 1959

"Equipment reports appearing in this section are of two types: Audiolab Test Reports and Tested in the Home Reports. Audiolab Test Reports are prepared for us by Hirsch-Houck Laboratories, a completely independent organization whose staff is responsible for the original Audio League Reports. Audiolab Reports are published exactly as they are received. Neither we nor the manufacturers of the equipment tested are permitted to delete information from or add to the reports, to amend them in any way, or withhold them from publication; manufacturers may add a short comment, however, if they wish to do so. Audiolab Reports are made on all-electronic equipment (tuners, preamplifiers, amplifiers, etc.). Tested in the Home Reports are prepared by members of our own staff on equipment that demands more subjective appraisals (speakers, pickups, etc.). The policy concerning report publication and amendment by the manufacturer is the same as that for Audiolab reports."
