Audio T Reading

Welcome to Audio T Reading

Situated near the very centre of Reading, our store first opened its doors way back in 1974 under the name of Reading Cassette & Hi-Fi. Audio T took over the business, with Simon Walker as the new manager, in 1996.
Our focus and passion has always been, and will remain, predominantly music (2 channel), concentrating on the new technologies such as audio streaming, high resolution audio and storage advice, as well as the more traditional vinyl and CD based systems up to and including the high end.
We have an enviable reputation in turntable set-up and service especially, but not exclusively, of Linn LP12s, Well Tempered and Rega turntables along with a range of cartridges to complement them.
With one of the nicest Hi-Fi demonstration rooms in the business, (as our suppliers and customers keep telling us) why not join us in a nice hot beverage and your favourite music and discover why we love doing what we do so much?
Our strength lies in ‘system building’. We aim to enable our customers to realise the greatest performance from their investment through our deep understanding of the products we carry, building quality systems at all cost levels.
