Actually we’re scientists….

Ever since 1978 our driving force has been curiosity. Our aim was to define the framework of the possible, and push its limits a little further each day, and that’s what formed the stone of this company. We always aspired to the creation of new findings rather than the exploitation of existing knowledge. We were determined to carve out our own advances, and not simply follow the progress of technology.

Satisfying this goal requires our team of fifteen designers and developers to create every device in our headquarters in Herford. From the initial design, developing every single circuit board and finishing with the software code – the stage which brings all the component parts together to form a grand ensemble – our devices are built in Herford. They are permeated by the belief on which this company was founded, and which drives all of us forward every day.

We don’t build mass products, we build accoustic treasures, we build heartbeats, goosebumps and enthusiasm. 



From digital signal processing and active units in loudspeakers right to the world’s first DSD 1024-capable player: we can claim with pride that our belief in science has made T+A one of the world’s leading, most innovative Hi-Fi companies.


At every stage we pay homage to our design philosophy of timeless reduction: T+A devices should always look timeless – never old-fashioned. Over a period of forty years our designers have developed a stylistic idiom whose simplicity belies its progressive nature: extended shoulder lines, intersected by distinctive heat-sinks in the High-End series, ensure that our equipment looks elegant and elongated. The cooling elements of the HV series are an impressive indication of the machines’ performance potential, while modern developments such as LED lighting strips emphasise the progressive aspect of our products.

Using these methods we create products which are equally impressive both in technical and visual terms; products destined to last for decades, rather than just short-lived fashion accessories.
