Hi-Fi

“HiFi” is a term originating in the 1950s, around the time home record and tape playing equipment was transitioning from mono to stereo, and consumers were becoming more particular about the sound quality.

TVs of this period were black and white, with generally small screens and small speakers and marginal sound, but records and tapes offered an impressive way to listen to music or FM radio in the home in a way that ideally approached the live experience.

Hi-Fi is really just a shortened version of “high fidelity,” which as you might guess, implies a high degree of accuracy (fidelity) in reproducing sound. Typically separate solid speaker enclosures were used, with large woofers of 8–15″ in diameter, crossed over electronically to midrange and tweeter drivers. AR and KLH (and later Advent) pioneered acoustic suspension sealed enclosures, which allowed very good deep bass from a reasonably sized boxes in exchange for requiring more power to achieve a certain volume than earlier bass reflex, horn loaded or ported enclosures needed. Since this was also the time of early more powerful solid state amplifiers beginning to compete with the traditional vacuum tube amps, this tradeoff resulted in more acoustic suspension speakers sold with solid state (transistor) amplifiers.

Special recordings of music boasted of microphones and mixers and tape machines used, and some “ping-pong” stereo records exaggerated the stereo effect so people would really notice the presence of a left and right speaker. Mobile Fidelity started as a company that produced records of steam engines and thunderstorms, specifically used to impress home hifi listeners with their impressive bass and dynamic range. Some classic and still highly valued recordings were made in this period, and can still impress a modern listener.

There are special sound standards (measured in hertz), which successfully supports hi-fi equipment (tuners, amplifiers, acoustics systems, etc.). The lower the level of interference (Hz), the purer the sound.

Purchasing a Mini or Micro Hi-Fi System

Your choice of Hi-Fi should be guided by how you intend to use it. The following are some practical considerations to bear in mind:

  • Always choose a Hi-Fi to suit the size of the room and how you intend to use it. For background music, a micro Hi-Fi will likely suffice.
  • When identifying the potential power output of a Hi Fi, always check whether the power is listed per channel (most systems have two channels) or if it is the Hi-Fi’s total output.
  • Do you enjoy listening to the radio? If so, look for Hi Fi models with DAB+.
  • Is the majority of your music collection stored digitally? If so, look for models with a USB port, iPod dock or Bluetooth connectivity to play your music through your Hi Fi speakers.
