Love the closing line. “I don’t really care for music much- it’s the (a) high fidelity”

amazing insights from the beginnings of hi-fi

A little careful perusal of the World Wide Web might just turn up a complete PDF copy.

Why is the spindle so dang tall?
I guess clearance for the tone arm.. I used to stack as many 45's on top as I could (borrowed from my older brothers collection) and it would play them all. My guess is that tone arm must have to raise pretty high to clear a stack of 7 or 10 records.. I was only 5 or so, can't fully remember how many it would hold!

I don't think this ever got posted here -- now seems like a good time.


My father was a broadcast engineer in Baltimore, MD in the mid/late 1950s. Not coincidentally, I have an original 45 rpm copy of this down in the basement. :)
