Straight Steer on Stereo

Sound & Vision - - LETTERS -

Read­ing the re­pro­duc­tion of your 1958 ar­ti­cle “Straight Steer on Stereo” (Fe­bru­ary/march and soun­dand­vi­sion.com) was like be­ing trans­ported by Mr. Pe­abody’s Way­back ma­chine, par­tic­u­larly the sec­tion on ra­dio broad­casts si­mul­ta­ne­ously us­ing an AM and FM sta­tion to achieve a stereo broad­cast. That’s ex­actly how I first heard stereo in the L.A. area (Santa Ana). My fa­ther set up two ra­dios, and based upon sched­uled broad­cast times, we lis­tened to the new ef­fect in sound. Within the next year, he had bought a Bo­gen amp and FM tuner, Rec-o-kut turntable with a Shure M12, a cou­ple of AR2S, and ac­com­pa­ny­ing elec­tro­static tweet­ers. From that point on, we only bought ‘Stereo’ records. I’m cur­rently res­ur­rect­ing the turntable for old time’s sake, in his mem­ory. Gary Kins­man Pleasan­ton, CA
