 Audio Magazine covering audio engineering - 1947 to 2000
Audio Engineering magazine was published from ¨May, 1947 to 2000, and was America's longest-running audio magazine.
The title changed to "Audio" in February, 1954, with a graphic redesign. The first 7 years focused on technology and engineering, while the later issues highlighted consumer electronics and music. "Audio" published reviews of audio products and audio technology as well as featuring informational articles on topics such as acoustics, psychoacoustics and recording.
Audio was a direct sucessor of "Radio" magazine, started in the 20's.
