A Few Winning Words on Hi-Fi
July 1963 Popular Electronics

July 1963 Popular Electronics

July 1963 Popular Electronics Cover - RF CafeTable of Contents

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Popular Electronics, published October 1954 - April 1985. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

Comics in modern magazines are a rather rare phenomenon for some reason, but they were fairly regular features up until a couple decades ago. Maybe publishers are too afraid of offending some squish. This set of comics from the July 1963 edition of Popular Electronics magazine deals with high fidelity (Hi-Fi) stereo equipment, which was considered somewhat exotic and high-end for many people's budgets in the day. Inexplicably (not), that is about the time that increases in hearing losses among younger people were first being noticed in audiograms. I listened to my share of loud music beginning in the late 1960s, and operated many model airplane engines and lawnmower type engines my whole life, and still, at 65 years old, can hear a pin drop in the next room. I am blind as a bat, however (~20/240, corrected to nearly 20/20).
