The Absolute Sound (TAS) is an American magazine which reviews audiophile-oriented sound-reproduction equipment, along with recordings and comments on various music-related subjects.


The Absolute Sound was founded in 1973 by Harry Pearson, who was its editor-in-chief and publisher. In the early years, TAS was a quarterly, digest-sized magazine and accepted no advertisements.[1] During the 1970s and 1980s, TAS (along with Stereophile) was highly influential in rejuvenating the audiophile industry.[2] Pearson himself is widely credited as being the most important figure in the rise of High-End audio.[3]

Until the mid- to late 1990s, Pearson owned and directed all rights to TAS. The magazine was published by Pearson Publishing Inc., which also published a sister high-end video review magazine published quarterly called The Perfect Vision. Pearson remained the chairman of its editorial advisory board until 2006 and regularly contributed a feature entitled HP's Workshop until his departure in 2012.[2] The magazine is now published by Absolute Multimedia, Inc., of Austin, Texas.
