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 see the prices they charge for blank mini discs among, and so often I see people coming in, grabbing a pack an paying through the nose. I feel like going up to these people and saying " Put that back, what are you doing?? you can get that for half the price" but i'm sure if I did I would find myself being ejected and banned from most of these shops.
This is where my hopefully handy hint comes in to all of you who are unaware of this. Richer Sounds, sell blank m.d's from under a pound, that are exactly the same if not better quality than the ones your paying £10 for 5 on the high street for. There prices start from around 75p up to £2.50 per m.d. I know there are not thousands of Richer Sounds knocking around, and the nearest one to me is 10-15 minute drive, they are well worth tracking down, and will be advertised in the yellow pages.If you do find one or know of one near you, when you get there you'll see that not only do they sell cheap m.d's, c.d's and balnk tapes but also a very wide range of DVD players, amps, speakers, m.d players and loads more at very very reasonable prices. And if sometimes like me you are unaware of the latest technology, the staff are only too happy to help and offer their honest opinion, which isn't like you'd think, "yeah go for the expensive one" They tell it how it is.
When I was first told about RS and tracked it down, my first impressions were not that good, as the store is only small, not signposted or very well advertised and with some really cheap prices (compared to Dixons,Currys etc.) made me think it could be a little bit dodgy. But on entering the store in Sheffield (which always seems to be packed) my opinion changed straight away. The shop is very well laid to say how small it is and most of the products are on display, clearly marked with the price and a brief description.They also have a few testing rooms, which I have never ventured into, but you are more than welcome to use before purchasing a product. So if you want to buy a new set of speakers and whack them up to full volume to see if the neighbours would approve then you can.
To add to your Richersounds experience refreshments such as tea/coffee hot chocolate etc are available. Lolly pops for the kids (or the big kids!!), and a range of novelty stickers which say things "I need help" or "I'm a virgin" (always amusing to pop one on your friends back!!)
