Teac was founded in 1953 as the Tokyo Electro Acoustic Company, and began its long journey in consumer electronics by producing open-reel tape recorders. After discovering new ways to apply its recording technology to the professional audio world, TEAC founded TASCAM in 1971, which pioneered the home studio concept and now represents one of TEAC's four consumer electronics divisions.
TEAC also has a strong presence in Data Storage and Information Products, and traditional audio and home theater categories. TEAC appeals to audiophiles with its Esoteric line of products, featuring robust disc playback devices and digital converters and processors, while its mainstream line primarily produces mid-fi products across numerous categories.
