How do they do it so cheap? Richer sounds offer an extensive range of Hi-Fi seperates. No mini hi-fi's, no TV's, you wont find a washing machine anywhere, they just do Hi-Fi seperates. And they're very good at it! Julian Richer, founder of Richer Sounds, has some superb philosophies. The shops...

Progreat value, great range

Conssometimes arrogant staff

I live in Spain and Richer Sounds is one of the shops I miss most. Their shops are small but they have an astounding range of stock - from the cheapo couple-of-wires-in-a-box to silly-priced room-sized speakers. As you may know, Richer sounds specialise in Hi Fi separates. They do not sell...

ProInexpensive, wide range of products

Conscan 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...

Prolow cost, appears cheap

Consstores 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...

“The price is right”

published 10/04/2001

ProThe prices!

ConsThe service? (Or was it just me!)

Richer Sounds is a store dealing mainly with separate hi-fi equipment, although with the advent of home cinema, it has diversified. I visited the Edinburgh branch, which is situated in Chambers Street. There is a plaque on the service desk, which proclaims this to be their sixth store...

This is a Hi-fi equipment store, and most of the equipment I have bought in the last five years has been from here. A good thing about this shop is that the sales staff are willing to give good advice without seeming pretentious and arrogant as people working in many other shops of this sort do...

Consnone

I started shopping at Richer Sounds a few years ago, and have only had good experiences. Richer Sounds sells hifi equipment very cheaply. It does this by buying disconitued products, buying straight from the main dealers, and having small stores slightly out of the center of the city, thus...

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...

When I went to school in Norwich, I used to go into Richer Sounds almost every day as it was next door to my school.
