TEAC (Tokyo Electro-Acoustic Company) has been a leader in audio innovation since Mr. Katsuma Tani presented his first tape recorder more than 50 years ago. Since then, the brand has built its reputation on innovative products that are designed to the very highest standards in each category. With sister brand Esoteric (its legendary high-end audio division) TEAC can rightly claim to be one of the true giants of audio.
