    How cool. I just looked up my birth year/month (Feb 1962) and flipped thru it. Awesome.

    You guys didn't know about americanradiohistory ? :(

    Audio and High Fidelity there, too... lots of electronics and tape recording magazines,too, plus catalogs and radio and showbiz periodicals -- books, all kinds of dandy stuff. Incredible site.
    They also have Vacuum Tube Valley there, too, but it is a little hard to find :p

    Oh -- also -- the PDFs are downloadable and they've been OCR'd and indexed, and they're searchable. That's the resource I have been using for my (umm... moribund) "Polk Audio ads" project. :)

    Awesome, can't wait to go through the 80s issues and see all the gear I was drooling about as a kid that got me into this hobby.

    Awesome! Now if I can just find the review of the 7Bs that prompted me to buy them. I can't remember what magazine it was in but I'm thinking that it was definitely 1979.

    This first shipment was fantastic
    But each shipment after was massively painful

    Returns were a pain.
    I always hated getting tapes with a generic insert and no liner notes or lyrics!

    I had stacks of SR ,Audio and High Fidelity from the late early to late 80s when i worked in the audio bizz. Also had a few boxes for brochures from the late 70 through late 80s for various audio gear Not to mention drawers full of Chevrolet car brochures from mid 60 to mid 70. I would get at a service station in Longville MN that was a Chevy dealer near my grandparents cabin on Leech Lake. Gave or threw them all away IDIOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
