extensive range of High Quality Audio Racks from Japan
Bring out the nuanced beauty of your music with TAOC

TAOC is a brand of products designed for high-grade audio systems from Aisin Takaoka Co., Ltd.

With over 50 years of history as the top maker of cast-iron components for the automobile industry and a member of the Toyota Group of companies, Aisin Takaoka has built up extensive know-how in the characteristics, moulding and processing of cast iron materials.

Based on this experience, Aisin Takaoka was the first company to identify the oscillation-attenuating properties of cast iron and its affinity with audio products, leading to the development of high-grade audio accessories and high-resolution Speaker System.

The name TAOC is derived from “Takaoka Anti-Oscillation Casting.”

Building on the principle that mastering oscillation is the key to mastering audio, TAOC has been engaged for many years in mastering the effects that oscillations have on music. 

Based on the foundation we have established through automobile manufacturing, TAOC products have continued to be the brand of choice of audiophiles around the world for over 30 years— a true testimony to the reliability of TAOC.
