Einblick in den Imhofs Hifi Katalog von 1962

Es ist etwas Besonderes, einen so gut erhaltenen Hifi-Katalog aus dem England von 1962 zu bekommen. Wir haben die Seiten so geschickt wie möglich aufgeteilt, sonst würde eine einzelne Seite zu lang werden. Blättern Sie oben in der weißen Leiste von Seite zu Seite.

Der eigentliche 1962er Produktbereich in diesem Prospekt beginnt mit den Programmquellen in Mono und Stereo.

Achten Sie auch mal auf die einzelnen Sätze, bei denen wir Deutschen die ganzen Kommata vermissen. Scheinbar hatte man in England das Trennen eines längeren Satzes dem Leser überlassen.

choosing a motor (gemeint ist der Plattenspieler)

It is essential to have a turntable which runs freely, without vibration or fluctuation in speed.

The turntable itself should be fairly heavy and, if possible, accurately machined. The bearings should fit accurately to prevent side play. The motor should be inherently free from vibration and sprung so as to reduce vibration to a minimum. A selector for three or four speeds should be incorporated; on some models there will be an adjustment for all speeds. To set each speed accurately a stroboscope indicator is required.

The pick-up is generally considered separately. Automatic changers are sometimes frowned on for L.P. and stereo records. They are very convenient, though, and one can use an automatic changer which also allows manual changing or separate motors, one with a single-play arm and one with an automatic changer.

The term 'transcription motor' is best regarded
as indicating the individual manufacturer's leading model; a study of the specification and performance is the best indication of true quality. We shall always be happy to advise you if you are in doubt. Generally speaking, a good motor costs £15 - £20 and a very good one about £30.

As Imhofs have the largest stock of records in the world, it is possible for you to hear virtually any records you like played on the equipment in which you are interested.

transcription motors 1962 (Auflistung der Plattenspieler)

Hier sieht man bereits, wieviel Auswahl im England 1962 schon vorhanden war, als es bei uns in den wenigen Hifi-Studios nur ganz wenige High-End Laufwerke und Tonarme gab. Auch das Angebot an Abtastsystemen war bei uns denkbar gering.

automatic changer 1962

choosing a tuner

To achieve a high standard of reproduction from even the best equipment, the signal from the radio must itself be of high standard. On FM (frequency modulation) transmission, the B.B.C. sets an extremely high standard and for this reason many people use only an FM tuner. However, oversea transmissions are of great interest, even though they are of less high standard, and to receive them an AM (amplitude modulation) tuner is required.

This may be separate from the FM tuner or combined on the one chassis. A good aerial, depending on the location, will improve reception considerably. Near the FM transmitter, a less sensitive tuner will suffice. Some amplifiers provide spare power for tuners but with others a self-powered tuner or a separate power pack is essential.

In FM tuners, a tuning indicator (or 'magic eye') is best for accurate tuning, althounh with automatic frequency control it is not essential. A switched tuner, with preset controls for selecting stations does, of course, simplify matters. A final point which affects the price of a tuner is the finish.

A medium quality FM tuner usually costs £20 - £25 and an AM/FM tuner five or ten pounds more, while for the best of both you would need to pay around £60 to £70. Imhofs world-wide experience enables us to recommend the most suitable tuner for any country.

list of tuners 1962 (und unser Kommentar)

Bemerkenswert ist hier einmal die Menge der uns fast völlig unbekannten Anbieter, und daß die Engländer so großen Wert auf die Anzahl und die Typen der Röhren gelegt hatten.
Ob das den (englischen) Kunden wirklich interessiert hatte ? In Deutschland wurde zu der Zeit gerade die Anzahl der Kreise abgeschafft. So hatte es ja auch nur die Gurus interesiert wie später zum Beispiel die UKW Empfindlichkeit in MicroVolt. Über die eigentlich wichtige UKW Qualität wurden selten vernünftige Aussagen gemacht. Auch war UKW-Stereo bei diesen FM-Tunern noch fast unbekannt. Da war Max Grundig 1962 bereits ein Stück weiter.
