So that's two more choices to make. The first: Stereo or mono? Most prerecorded tapes are now produced in stereo, and TV programs already are being broadcast in stereo in some cities. In VCRs stereo soon will be the only way to go. A mono record player still plays stereo records; a mono VCR will play stereo tapes. But with a stereo machine and a few wires hooked up to your speakers (through your amplifier), you'll have great sound. The second choice: Hi-fi or low? Hi-fi gives you sound that's spectacular compared to stereo, but it's going to cost you.
