The August issue on sale now celebrates our 400th edition and four decades of expert hi-fi advice and reviews. The hi-fi landscape has changed beyond recognition since 1975 and this milestone issue celebrates our 40 years print.
This month sees our 400th issue, a special anniversary edition celebrating 40 years of expert hi-fi reviews and buying advice. In putting together this issue, I have come to realise just how significantly the world of audio has changed in an amazingly short amount of time.
I was perhaps a bit too young to remember the very first issue of Hi-Fi Choice when it launched in its original A5 format back in 1975, but I do remember the music and sounds of the time that got me hooked, even if I was listening on a mono cassette radio recorder or my dad’s 8-track tape player in the family car. For anyone wanting to recall the era our Year In Music feature is just for you, and revisits 1975 with a comprehensive rundown of the bands and albums that defined the magazine’s birth year.
Our six-page Anniversary feature journeys along the audio format timeline and hi-fi trends in a celebration of our first 40 years in print, while this month’s Opinion pages revisit audio highlights as seen by ex-editors and our team of contributors that remember the most. Happy birthday then Hi-Fi Choice, and here’s to the next 40 years!
