Re-Live The Golden Age of Home Stereo in the 1970s Though These Magazine Ads

I’ve recently discovered a stack of Rolling Stone magazines from the 1970s and the 1980s and was fascinated by the many ads promoting home stereo and audio tech: including Technics turntables, Bose speakers, Marantz amplifiers, and more obscure brands of the era. Some of the audio equipment created during the 1970s-80s has become classic today and I couldn’t agree more having owned a few vintage amps myself.

I gathered some of my favorites in a digital catalog below — feel free to browse and share.
