Instore on Sunday I chose the LG 32LF2500 LCD tv. was told at the till that the item may be substituted for another model. I asked for a view to see what I would be getting. A 32LF7700 came down the conveyer belt. I was well pleased.
For £350 this is great . It has built in FreeSat HD as well as freeview. It can play MP3s from a USB stick.
I presume this is a nationwide substitution because I bought mine in Gloucester and my mate did the same in Hereford. Give it a try.

Yep you're right, they sure like to "bait and switch" to get you to spend more.

Richer Sounds does what it sets out to do very well.
It seems to be the butt of Hot Deal knocks for no good reason.
If they make a suggestion you do not like then say NO.

But it's just like webuyanycar.com. You have already looked on the site, they've given you a price for your car, you're getting your documents together and taking a trip down to them - they offer £900 less than they said they'd give you - you're already there, have already committed to selling the car to them, have all the documents etc and it will save you the hassle of selling elsewhere. Chances are you will take a lower offer than the original one.

Same with Richer Sounds, you go there wanting to buy one of their cheaper items, usually these are not in stock but they always have another more expensive alternative - yes you can say no, but you've already taken the effort of going there etc.

Learn your lessons well with Richer Sounds, just PHONE before visiting a store to check if an item is in stock, do not listen to the sales people.....their recommendations usually try to sway you towards Cambridge Audio or Onkyo.

Phone, reserve if in stock, and pay on collection, treat it like Argos. You never then have to listen to any of their "recommendations".

After having one of their staff tell me after wanting to buy a pair of Mission speakers they listed on their website that they had gone bust and wouldn't be having any more Mission speakers, I refuse to listen to any of the muppets, and only shop their on price.

Richer Sounds may no longer stock Mission Speakers at all, but they most certainly have not gone bust.

Hardly, they never used to sell TV's only obsolete HiFi !
#9
Only experiences I have had with them were for a denon speaker kit and a friend who wanted an lcd tv.
identified them as the cheapest in both cases, and in both cases phoned ahead, got the salesman to confirm the item was in stock, in both cases he took our names and put a reserved sticker on them for me (it's a 25 mile round trip to my nearest branch) - guaranteeing that they'd be held for 7 days.
They did so both times.

Lol. They do what they set to do i.e. make me as a customer feel ignored and undervalued. No thanks!

This.

I wanted a clearance tv from richer sounds but thought I had no chance, as I dont drive and its about a 75mile round trip...so I rung them and they said they would reserve it for me, i picked it up the next day and they even helped me to the car and pack it in well! even took the stand off the tv so it would fit better in the car!
Excellent!
#12
I have to add my voice in support of Richer Sounds.

Excellent kit, keenly priced, I've never had an issue with stock as I always phone ahead to make sure and get it reserved.

I cannot belive people complain because they saw something really cheap advertised, didnt phone, travelled, found out when they got there that there was no stock, and were offerred alternatives so thier trip wasnt wasted !

Thier advice can sometimes be a bit "subjective" - but show me a high street shop (or AV centre) that isnt - they all have thier preferred suppliers either technically or based on profit margins.

A wee bit of common sense goes a long way ...

+1.
Just treat RicherSounds like any other store. Phone in advance if looking for a particular item and take any sales staff’s advice with 2 to 3 metric tonnes of salt.
I usually carry a wheelbarrow full of rock salt when I go shopping so I can throw it at any sales staff that try to give me advice.

I like Richer Sounds and am bored with the clueless posters that moan about low stock levels when RS usually list on their website if an item is low in stock. They also list direct phone numbers for each store and they aren’t premium rate numbers. Common sense is in short supply at times. :roll:
#14
I will defend Richer Sounds

Ring ahead, it even suggests it on the website!

When I bought my LG37F7700 from them, they were brilliant!

and it was cheap £440 with a 5 year instore warranty

I seem to remember going to one of their boxing day bargain bonanza sales, I downloaded a list of what they would be selling on the day, queued up for ages - helpful RS sales-person comes down the queue later, telling everyone what they are after is in stock yes, problem is get to the front of the queue, you haven't seen anyone walk out with the item you wanted, low and behold what you wanted is not there and they offer an item either you don't want, or is more expensive than what you were after.

The amount of items RS say are low in stock you'd think they're nearing bankruptcy.

It’s often the case that the best deals wherever you buy them have limited stock. A large number of deals posted here are out of stock within 24 hours. It’s part of the trip man; dig it.
#17
RS are a good retailer. They give solid support and better advice than you get at most highstreet electronics stores. Some of their deals are very good and are hard to get hold off, that doesn't make them a bad retailer. At least they have deals worth looking at. If something is a top offer from them I always phone first.

I miss the Boxing Day bonanza sales they used to do, but I did once get really annoyed when they listed two Servo 15 subwoofers, at a Richer two hours drive away. I was 2nd in line having gone very early indeed and they came up with excuses for both of them being broken / missing parts when they did final checks the night before. Certain that staff had realised what a good deal they were and that was how they disappeared.
#18
No one has mentioned this TV
#19
I've got nothing but good things to say about RS. Twice I've shopped there, once to buy a 32" LCD, then to buy a 42" LCD. Both times, after taking advice from the sales guy, I've left with TV's cheaper than the ones I went in to buy.

When buying the 42" the manager directed me to a TV that was better spec, said John Lewis has that current model on sale and they'd price match (including the warranty). So I ended up with a better TV for less. He even called me a taxi and helped me load the TV in. Very happy with the service I've gotten there.
#20
ages ago we bought a sharp camcorder, which was on sale, from argod. they gave us a newer model. so this indeed does happen sometimes.
#21
I don't understand how this would be a nationwide 'deal', not that anyone's actually discussing this deal.

Got this tv a few weeks ago, good buy.:thumbsup:

Perhaps you would care if you actually read that RS sell this TV cheaper....

1. Its cheaper
2. Its guaranteed you get the FreeSat version (unlike the gamble of Argos)

The banter was on about RS availabilty of stock, not that you really deserve my summary here , but if you phone your local RS, you may find it in stock :roll:

maybe its because smart people phoned and reserved the items while you were stood there in the queue waiting to find that you couldnt get what you want because you were stupid and did not phone:-D

Richer Sounds claim to be experts and give expert advice.

However i have witnessed them trying to sell a £40 HDMI cable (that was no better than one from poundland) that will give improved picture quality, if anybody believes this then they are no expert. Since that episode i have vowed never again.

The argos deal is a good one you know your getting no hardsell on any extras.
#29
you wouldn't have been so pleased if you didn't have a satellite dish!

I have no problems with Richer, just reserve before you go to gurantee it's gonna be there. If they screw up, which they did with my Mums reservation, they should give you a voucher for compensation (a little note to Julian Richer, we got £30 back...)

You can add USB functionality to most recent LG tvs (if they have a usb "Service Port" on the back - models from the last year or 2 do).

Is that before or after I've spent £5 in petrol, £3 on the car park, and 2 hours travelling?

As I previously stated, I am not a fan of RS staff, but if the item is the cheapest you can phone and reserve before collection.

Last time I went to buy my new Denon Receiver I reserved, I used a car park to which on their website they state they refund, no store is going to cover your fuel costs now are they.

The person was referring to a boxing day sale, of which the items are on a first come first served basis, calling them stupid for not phoning is both rude and unnecessary :roll:

Oh dear, please on behalf of the person that posted it was cheaper at RS and at least guaranteed to be a LG 32LF7700 apologise for the fact there is no RS store near you.

Please also let me offer my fullest apologises for those of us"harping on" about RS, by adding useful advice to shopping there on such a purchase, in the process tiring your eyes out reading through the thread :roll:
