On 10th May 2019 Julian passed 60% of his shares into an Employee Owned Trust, giving all employees an indirect stake in the business in perpetuity, as well as, quite separately, a £1000 celebratory bonus for every year they had worked (excl. board directors), the latter from his own pocket – a gift to his loyal team of an average of £8000 each, in total almost £4M.
Richer Sounds sells a range of hi-fi, home cinema and TV equipment and we are committed to giving you the best value for money and customer service that we possibly can
As an employee controlled trust, we’re a diverse, customer-orientated team, united by a passion for music and movies. Our stores contain a remarkable number of budding musicians, DJs, and film buffs, fanatical about great sound and vision. We recruit based on natural friendliness, rather than high-pressure sales skills. All our teams are audio-visual enthusiasts and experts (seriously – they train themselves on new products continuously). They’re here to find a perfect match to your needs and budget, big or small, and to think of the things you may have missed, enhancing your overall home entertainment experience.

Julian began buying and selling hi-fi separates at school when he was 14. In 1978, aged 19, he opened his first shop on London Bridge Walk with the help of the late Vic Odden, a photography retailer. We now trade from 53 stores nationwide, online, and through our telesales and business to business departments. We may have started in budget hi-fi, but in more recent years we have also gained a significant reputation in TV, home cinema systems and premium audio.
