Stereo Review

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

Stereo Review Magazine History

Publication began in February of 1958 as HiFi and Music Review. By December of 1958 it was decided that there was a redundancy between the words "hi-fi" and "music" and the name was shortened to HiFi Review. By February 1960, however, stereo was definitely with us and the name was changed to HiFi/Stereo review. In November 1968 it was changed once again. This time it was due to the association of the term "hi-fi" with monophonic recordings. It was shortened to just Stereo Review and that lasted until 1999.

High Fidelity magazine suspended publication in 1989. In the September 1989 issue Of Stereo Review, the Editor in Chief, Louise Boundas, announced that subscribers to High Fidelity will receive Stereo Review. Subscriptions would be extended by the number of issues remaining in the subscription to High Fidelity. The Editor in Chief of High Fidelity, Michael Riggs, joined the staff at Stereo Review as Editor at Large. Starting in September a small note at the top of the cover of Stereo Review said "Incorporating High Fidelity. The cover note was discontinued starting in January 1992 but continued on the contents page.

A double issue came out for February/March 1999. This issue was the first having the new name of Sound & Vision. This new publication combines the two magazines of Stereo Review and Video. It includes Home Theater, Audio, Video, Multimedia, Movies and Music.

Issues of Stereo Review prior to 1981 have two different volume numbers for the same year. Issues from January to June have one volume and issues from July to December have the next volume.

Reviews apparently start in 1961 when Julian Hirsch and Gladden Huock, a pair of engineers whose special interest is audio, began testing equipment for Stereo Review. They had been testing high-fidelity equipment at their independent laboratory since 1954. Also at this time, J. Gordon Holt was writing a column for Stereo Review called Sound and the Query, a forum for eliminating the most common and often most exasperating problems in stereo hi-fi.

Then there were the priceless cartoons by Charles Rodrigues. These could be found in Playboy, National Lampoon, High Fidelity and HiFi & Music Review (later Stereo Review). Rodridgues was represented starting in Volume 1, Number 1 of HiFi & Music Review in February 1958.

Larry Klein joined the staff of Stereo review in 1962 as Technical Editor. He later became Technical Director and was there until 1983 when he left to do private consulting.

I first met Larry about 1963 when I was working at Sonotone in Elmsford, NY. He drove up from Manhattan in his Volkswagen to visit our Audio Products section. He explained that he was using a motorcycle battery in the front compartment to power his car stereo.

In 1983, Larry visited McIntosh Laboratory in Binghamton, NY where I was Director of Acoustic Research. The left picture is in the July 1983 issue of Stereo Review and was taken at one of the test stations on the McIntosh production line. The right one is in the December 1983 issue of Stereo Review and was taken when I was showing him the McIntosh anechoic chamber.

Both pictures are on the page with his monthly articles called "Audio Q. and A." For some reason neither picture is acknowledged as having been taken at the McIntosh facilities. The anechoic picture is simply titled "Checking out fiberglass wedges in an anechoic chamber." The production line picture has no title at all.
