Photograph caption dated March 23, 1959 reads, "Al Cassell of Cassell's, San Fernando, right, shown making presentation of first prize Calbest Multiplex stereo tuner to Henry Naftaly and his wife Lee of 10709 Sharp Ave., San Fernando. The lucky pair was selected from thousands of visitors to the Hi-Fi Show at the Biltmore Hotel recently in Los Angeles. This is the first Multiplex unit to go into home use in Southern California. Multiplex is a new venture into radio transmission, allowing stereo broadcast simultaneously over two wave bands originating from one sending station. This is known as Simulcast. This makes feasible stereo broadcasting from a single source and opens a new vista to Hi-Fi radio broadcasting art."
