Once upon a time, hi-fi was the very essence of high-tech when it came to music.
Even after CDs came along, we got John Cusack in a great movie, High Fidelity (and it was a great movie, don’t say it wasn’t). If you think that high fidelity is a thing of the past because it’s all digital and perfect now, think again. Vinyl’s been outpacing CD sales the last few years. There’s something to be said for the perfectly imperfect sound off an album. Plus, the album art!
Here’s a great infographic from Sonos looking at the history of hi-fi.
