    High fidelity (or “Hi Fi”) record players utilize a two-channel amplifier and speaker system, with one channel driving the wide-range woofer, and one channel driving the combination wide-range midrange and tweeter to achieve a high level of fidelity, or accuracy of copy (the vinyl record) to the source. Hi Fi equipment has minimal amounts of noise and distortion and an accurate frequency response.

    In the 1950s the term “high fidelity” began to be used by audio manufacturers as a marketing term to describe records and equipment which were intended to provide faithful sound reproduction. While some consumers simply interpreted “high fidelity” as fancy and expensive equipment, many found the difference in quality between Hi-Fi and the then standard AM radios and 78 RPM records readily apparent. Technical quality has continued to increase, and now high fidelity record players are taken for granted and a staple of the turntable market.

    Major brand names for Hi Fi record players include Sony, Numark, Gemini, Stanton, Panasonic, and Thorens among others.
