Abstract: When it started being commonly used at the beginning of the 1930s, the term “high-fidelity”, applied to recorded sound, referred to the transparency of recording technologies, to their ability to reproduce as faithfully as possible an external reality that existed a priori to the act of recording. In the following decades, as the technologies of production and reproduction in phonography evolved and new recording ideologies emerged, the definition of the term became more and more blurred, as did the distinctive characteristics of high-fidelity systems, phonograms, and music. This paper aims to determine what are, in 2012 and from the perspective of the hi-fi enthusiasts, the distinctive characteristics of high-fidelity music, when compared to any other form of music which would not qualify as such. To answer this central question, today’s main high-fidelity concepts and ideologies will be explored and discussed.
