type of audio machinery the term refers to "surround sound" that feeds
4 speakers if you have them.
My understanding of "hi-fi vhs" means the audio portion is stored
_with_ the video data, in the higher bandwidth diagonal "stripes" along
Normal vhs stores the audio linearly along the edge of the tape.
Hi-fi also stores the audio linearly so the tape can be played on
a non-hi-fi vcr.
I suppose four tracks of audio data could be stored; my "hi-fi" vcr
only does stereo.
