Excellent

Inexpensive, wide range of products

can seem a bit chaotic

Richer Sounds works on the old principle of 'Pile em High, Sell em Cheap' Domestic hi-fi manufacturers rely surprisingly heavily on fashion to shift new equipment. In order to maximise development costs, they require substantial production runs in order to make a reasonable return on investment...

Good

low cost, appears cheap

stores cramped, is it really that cheap?

Right, I hope I've got your attention!! There is no catch here, you can get a DVD player for less than £15 (*£14.99 actually) Here's how it works, Richer Sounds (RS) are currently selling a basic DVD player for £25 (April 2004). However if you go to your local store and they don't have one in...

I'm going to go agaist the popular concensus here, because I did not enjoy my experice with Richer Sounds. Having decided to make the leap from mini system to separates, I noted a few Glasgoe hi-fi shops from my Yellow Pages and set off early this morning. I hurried to Richer Sounds, which was...

I like most other Richer Sounds customers, have been using their stores for a few years now, and felt I should write a quick op, that I hope you will find usefull, and will hopefully save a few people some hard earned cash. When I go into a lagre high street music store, it really annoys me to...

“Richer Sounds Great”

Small shops.

“High Fidelity”

published 14/02/2001

Quality equipment very cheap

Not Cutting Edge

I've used Richer Sounds for years. They have an excellent range of hi-fi equipment at prices that usually undercut the major high street retailers significantly. They deal mainly in seperates, and scoff at the mention of mini or midi systems. They have stores nationwide and a web site at www...

Very cheap

Small stock

Richer Sounds is a Hi-Fi shop with outlets across the UK as well as a mail order facility. It offers quite a small selection of hi-fi equipment but all items are very reasonably priced. They have a website, a bi-monthly catalogue, shops and numerous adverts in top hi-fi magazines (namely What Hi...

I have only visited a branch of "Richer Sounds" once, not being a fully paid-up member of the technocracy, but I must say that I was impressed. As a young woman, I have sadly become habituated to shop assistants talking down to me when a product contains a circuit board. Obviously being a girl...

Good personal service, huge discounts

Long waiting periods, hectic shops

I have used Richer Sounds to purchase my entire separates hi-fi system, and I am very pleased with the significant savings they offer. Although sometimes the store does get very crowded, once obtained service is excellent. The friendly, personal nature of service is helpful and informative. The...

“Richer Sounds Value”

published 14/02/2001

Cheap, good value, very good service

can get very busy

I have bought a minidisc deck, player, amp, cd player and dvd player from richer sounds, and I am still to find a problem with the shop. Richer Sounds is one of the only high street shops to sell affordable multi region DVD players, and it is well worth buying one. They will price beat, have a...

“Best HiFi shop around”

published 28/09/2000

Cheap, friendly, they know thier stuff

not great with repairs, yes the shops are small

I have bought 4 or 5 pieces of equipment from Richer sounds plus I dont know how many minidiscs. They have small shops. Thats the way they like it because at the end of the day if they pay lower rent they can give us lower prices. If you dont like rubbing against a geek with BO, tr going there on...

“A richer experience”

Great prices and service

Stock is sometimes difficult to get hold of

Well what I lovely experience I had shopping here. The prices are great. Other people have noted they are cheaper in some ads than others, this is simply business. Their overheads are lower over the internet so they will usually be cheaper, however watch out for the shipping charges as well. The...

The Edinburgh and other smaller branches

I am sorry to report a bad experience from one of the best and cheapest shops I know. Richer Sounds are the one stop retailer for Hi-Fi equipment. There prices are brilliant and if you buy What Hi-Fi they are even better. My first major purchase from them was not a good one in terms of service...
