Welcome to Audio T - Reading

TEL - 0118 958 5463 / Email us

Situated near the very centre of Reading, our store first opened its doors way back in 1988 under the name of Reading HiFi Centre. Audio-T took over the operation with Simon Walker as the new manager in 1996 and Frank Abela as ‘The Saturday Boy’, as he likes to be called, both remain to this day.

Our focus and passion has always been and shall remain predominately music (2 channel), concentrating on the new technologies such as audio streaming, high-definition-audio and storage advise as well as the more traditional vinyl and CD based systems up to and including the high end.

We also have an envious reputation in turntable set-up and service especially but not exclusively Linn LP12s and Rega turntables along with a range of cartridges to compliment them.

That’s not to say we don’t cater for home cinema, on the contrary, we specialise in the mid to high end here too with a fabulous separate home cinema demonstration room equipped with top end projectors and accompanying audio electronics and speakers.

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/films and discover why we love doing what we do so much?

We regularly welcome customers from Basingstoke, Bracknell, Camberley, Henley-On-Thames, Newbury, Thatcham, Wallingford, Wokingham and South Oxfordshire in store.

    I have used Audio T over many years and have never been disappointed with quality of service, advice or price. After moving from London to Newbury this was the first time using the Reading branch and I'm pleased standards experienced in the Hampstead branch are also at Reading.

    Ordered unit from the Reading store as I wanted to make sure that the gaps I had measured were correct to the system that I had also bought from them. Staff as always were friendly and helpful and double checked measurements and ordered the unit for me.

    I have purchased a Monitor Audio RSW12 sub in 2010 which is still going strong to this day! Customer service was excellent then and then bought my B&Ws in Reading in 2015. I had good service in regards to demo and customer service. No pushy tactics, wasn't hurried so will definitely visit the shop again. Thank you Marc.
