Thank you for visiting the Fatman website

My entrance into professional audio began in the 1970's supplying complete audio systems for sound recording studios around the world, in the 1990's developing a high end studio brand "TL Audio" that carries my initials, through to the iconic consumer Hi-Fi brand "Fatman".

Supplying studio equipment to some of the world's top studios I realised early on that high quality audio is paramount. In the development of "TL Audio" studio brand I decided to include valve circuitry in most of the products to add the warmth and depth of sound that only real valves can achieve. I'm proud to say that "TL Audio" studio products have been used in many important sound recordings over the years by many successful international artists around the world and the products are still as popular as ever and still being used by artists, producers & engineers in many studios worldwide.

We carried this ethos into the development of Fatman Hi Fi products with a range of high quality valve amps, some with the added benefit of modern interface such as apt-X Bluetooth for high quality wireless audio streaming from Smartphones, i-Pad etc. During my years in the audio industry I have had the privilege to meet and work with many music lovers and some exceptional talented people. Thank you to everyone who has purchased and enjoyed using my products and listening to the audio quality they produce.
