Home Audio History

Home Audio dates back to before Electricity. Edison’s phonograph was the first ‘true’ piece of Home Audio Equipment, a low fidelity, monaural sound reproduction format. Stereophonic sound didn’t exist until the 1930s when EMI British Engineer Alan Blumlein invented and patented stereo records, films and also sound sound. It was invented as a means of creating a more realistic reproduction of audio recorded in a live environment. Stereo sound was further expanded in 1971 by CBS Records and Quadraphonic sound was born. This is the equivalent of today's 4.0 surround sound. The format never gained much popularity at the time Surround Sound formats were used in cinema that date all the way back to films like Disney's Fantasia. The format became available to consumers in the 1980s. There are a variety of different surround sound formats with Dolby Pro Logic being one of the oldest and Dolby Pro Logic IIx being one of the newest.
