"Tech Hifi was born amid a fever for stereo equipment among college students in the 1960s as recordings multiplied and the technology to play them improved. Its hallmark — knowledgeable salespeople who could satisfy the comparison-shopping stereo connoisseur — helped propel its growth until it became one of the nation’s largest purveyors of consumer electronics, with more than 80 stores, mostly in the Northeast, including more than a dozen in and around New York City. A recession and competition from discount retailers forced it out of business in the mid-1980s." -New York Times 11.26.08
The original Tech Hifi was started in the mid 60's by two students at MIT in Boston, Massachusetts.

In 2010, we saw the need for the re-emergence of a Hifi store based on the concepts of the original company. Tech Hifi today is under the ownership of Mark
