Welcome to Audio T - Reading

TEL - 0118 958 5463 /

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

    Great team, happy to take time out for a Stereo newbie, I never felt any pressure to buy, would without doubt recommend these guys, I’ll be back for more soon, thanks Reading Audio T team.

    I came to Audio T after being treated dismissively (I think based on my age and appearance) by another local HiFi retailer. That was around 9 -10 years ago. In the intervening years what has kept me coming back, is a foundation of honesty, integrity and trust. I have always been treated impeccably by Simon and the team. They have always given me great advice and guidance based on my tastes and preferences, whilst being mindful of budget constraints where appropriate. Despite the occasional protests of my wife, I hope to be a customer for another 10 years and beyond.

    The guys in Reading store are very helpful and have time to show and explain all you need with no heavy sales tactics. Would recommend a visit to that store.

    Sometimes you can feel pressured to buy a particular make or model of turntable or CD player etc. With Audio T, while they will make a suggestion, there's no pressure. The staff at Audio T allow the customer to make their own decisions. While there may not be the range of equipment that there are in larger chains, you get the feeling that they have selected the manufacturers on the basis of the quality of their products.
