Welcome to Audio T - Southampton

TEL - 023 8025 2827 / Email us

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

"Guys really know their products and have a wealth of experience they're only too happy to share and discuss. Always helpful and never pushy. They'll always give you their honest and truthful opinion on all kinds of kit and accessories. They are very passionate about the Hi-Fi market and it's always a pleasure to do business with them. I've been a customer/fan for over 10 years now!"

Excellent service and support from Alan and John at Audio T Chandlers Ford. Highly recommended
Mr Roberts, Winchester

"I just wanted to send a quick line to thank you for sorting out so quickly and efficiently the issues that I had experienced with Rega.

Must say, that the replacement RP1 is everything that I had hoped the original would be, in perfect condition and a fine sound."
Mr Chant, Southampton
