An unchanging origin.
It is to deliver good sound to people who love music, single-mindedly.
In 1953, TEAC was founded in the west end of Tokyo by a talented audio engineer named Katsuma Tani. It is no exaggeration to say that the entire history of the company he founded, is a result of the quest to build audio products that will genuinely record and reproduce the original sound.
In 1964, the world's first slow-motion video recorder made by TEAC was used at the Tokyo Olympics to record each and every movement of the athletes. In 1977, R2-D2's voice was recorded for the first Star Wars movie on a TEAC's reel-to-reel deck. In 1982, Bruce Springsteen's famous album "Nebraska" was created in his home recording studio using a TEAC multi-track cassette tape recorder.
