This short film was apparently, made by the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) in 1959. It shows how the audiophile spent his time and money sixty years ago. I love the comment about the conductor who, in a recording or Beethoven's Symphony No.5 "makes a little too much play with his wind."

@Jazzdoc, Thanks for that hilarious treat.

Packed with obsessive behaviours I'm sure we've all experienced.

The dream/religion/sickness lives on in us all.

 

I love seeing the first mobile hifi unit, the gramophone in a handcart.

Yes thanks for sharing. Really brilliant and still holds true. Everyone looks so smart. A more limited but better quality wardrobe.

I love the record reviews too.

We have to be so careful with out wardrobe. Certain fabrics can create a static charge and that would surely have an adverse impact on sound quality!  :lol:
