A canyon of sound: How stereo vinyl works (1958)

RCA Victor introduces “a miracle,” their Orthophonic, high-fidelity, home stereo sound system.

Bob Banks, RCA Victor marketing manager of radio sales and their Victrola division, introducing the RCA’s new “living stereo” records and stereophonic hi-fi gear in 1958.

The demonstration utilizes left and right-hand sections of orchestra married together to create the fullness of “living stereo” and gives you a stereo stylus’s POV as it travels across a record groove (“a canyon of sound!”). If you are a vinyl fan, it’s pretty fun and informative.

So, put on your saturday night suit, and get down – get groovy – with “living stereo”.
