    Origins of high Fidelity in first Life Magazine article on the subject from 1953

    This is the initial LIFE magazine article "The Hi-Fi Bandwagon" from the June 15, 1953 issue which was probably the first exposure to “High Fidelity” for millions of Americans. Opening with a big two-page spread, it is an in-depth article exploring different facets of the Hi-Fi hobby and it’s origins. About twenty months later the “How to Buy Hi-Fi” side bar in this article was expanded into the 1955 Lifemagazine article "How to Buy Hi-Fidelity" that named the JBL Hartsfield speaker as the "money is no object" dream hi-fi speaker of it's time, which put the early JBL company on the map:
