Audio T Beginners Guide to Hi-Fi - A Blast from The Past For the Nostalgic Hi-Fi Enthusiast

Back in the 60's when Audio T had a shop on Oxford Street in London, the company published The Beginners Guide to
Hi-Fi. Authored by J.R. Hey it is in essence the forerunner of the Music at Home Guide that we still publish to this day... 

We hope you enjoy the nostalgic trip down memory lane. It's interesting to note, that whilst technology has undoubtedly moved on in great leaps and bounds, some of the advice still applies and has relevance today. Though I'd like to point out that we don't share the politcally incorrect and condascending views about women made at the time, so when reading, do not read aloud if you value your Hi-Fi assets! You have been warned!

You can download the PDF here or view the publication online here.
