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 a 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 half a century 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 50 years individually, but have 50 years experience here 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 half century! 

Alan, John and new boy Wayne!

N.B. We are pleased to partnering with our 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.

    In a day and age where good old fashion courteous service seems to be a thing of the past. You can be proud of your business, but more so the people you employ at this branch for their delivery of such high standards.

    Very helpful staff who listened to our views and requirements. Did not try to sell us something we neither didn’t want or didn’t like. Great advice and help on setting up to make sure the full kit was working.
