Welcome to Audio T - Southampton

TEL - 023 8025 2827 /

1969 was a year to remember. Neil Armstrong stepped on to the Moon. Concorde and the Boeing 747 flew for the first time. Stateside an audience of 400,000 gathered for the music festival at Woodstock. Back home Monty Python was first aired and Led Zeppelin's first album was released. As if all this wasn't enough a new hi-fi store named Hampshire Audio opened in Chandlers Ford.

In 1999 Hampshire Audio joined Audio T and 45 years after first opening we are still here with the same goal of providing hi-fi systems capable of enhancing the enjoyment of music at home. The only difference now is that we also offer CD, streaming plus multiroom audio and home cinema as well as the de facto hi-fi medium of choice in 1969, the 12” LP.

John and I haven't notched up the full 45 years, but have well over 35 years experience between us. We are happy to play music or movies for you in our demonstration room. Home visits to plan projects, for home dems, or to install and set up systems aren't a problem. We also offer home loans of products, be it interconnects and cables, or speakers and electronics. You can be confident of making the right choice with our assistance.

We both look forward to seeing you in store soon. Here's to the next 45 years!

Alan and John  

N.B. We are pleased to partnering with a new local independent record store, Hundred Records. Why not give them a spin! Check them out on Record Store Day! Or come and play your new vinyl purchases on one of our excellent record players.

    Audio T gave me really good service. I had clear idea of objectives - they gave good input - we agreed on a plan and they delivered. They were patient, generous with their time - including home visits - and always good humoured. I enjoyed the whole experience. Oh and the results are brilliant!

    Alan and John were excellent, their customer service was second to none. They spent lots of time helping me pick the right Hi-Fi system, and answering my many many questions :-) Will definitely be shopping at Audio T again.

    Overall very good. Demo room very good, although the number of vinyl albums to choose from for a rock, AOR, pop listener was very limiting. Staff were knowledgeable of the product. My Rega Planar had a large cosmetic fault, Audio T immediately offered to exchange it. Couldn't complain at that.

    Salesman knew his stuff and got it over in a polite and understated way. Goods arrived when promised.
