High Fidelity (USA print magazine)

Home | Audio Magazine | Stereo Review magazine | Good Sound | Troubleshooting

High Fidelity (USA print magazine) was published from April 1951 until July 1989 covering audio and high fidelity audio equipment, FM radio, FM stereo, video equipment, audio recordings, and related fields. In mid-1989, the title was acquired by Stereo Review, which began adding "Incorporating High Fidelity" on the cover of the October, 1989, issue. High Fidelity was founded by Milton B. Sleeper, a noted radio designer and publisher and began with a technical emphasis which soon broadened in to all aspects of consumer audio and recordings.
