TEAC Corporation (ティアック) (TYO: 6803) is an electronics company based in Japan. They have a professional recording division called TASCAM. TEAC was founded in 1956 as the Tokyo Electro Acoustic Company.

TEAC is known for its audio equipment, and was a primary manufacturer of high-end audio equipment in the 1980s. During that time, TEAC produced notable tape decks, cd players, turntables and amplifiers.

Of particular note is that TEAC produced an audio cassette with tape hubs reels that resembled reel-to-reel tape reels in appearance. Many manufactures of the time used these TEAC cassettes in advertisements of their tape decks because the TEAC cassettes looked more professional than standard audio cassettes, and because reel-to-reel tape recordings were known to be of higher quality than cassette recordings.

TEAC still produces various audio equipment that has little or nothing to share with the prestigious name, and has a well respected high end division, called "Esoteric."

On the digital data side of the business, TEAC produces DVD±R and DVD±RW recorders, CD-RW, CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, hard disc, floppy disk, and USB flash drives.
