Richer Sounds partners with ECLIPSE to offer permanent-demo 5.1 systems in the South

UK A/V retailer, Richer Sounds, is joining forces with ECLIPSE, a Japanese high-performance loudspeaker specialist, to bring permanent-demonstration 5.1 systems to a number of select stores in the south of England.

The participating outlets include Richer Sounds’ Chelsea store in London, the Southampton store in Hampshire, plus its Plymouth store in Devon. Chelsea has a permanent 5.1 system featuring TD307MK2As with an ECLIPSE TD520SW subwoofer, the Plymouth store has five TD307MK2As and Southampton, ECLIPSE’s flagship Richer Sounds store, has seven TD508MK3s in its Dolby Atmos-enabled system. In addition, all three stores have TD508MK3 demonstration pairs available for two-channel listening.

ECLIPSE is working with Richer Sounds to expand the A/V demonstration scheme beyond the south for 2019, with a growth plan set to move north in targeted geographic areas. Commenting on the 5.1-ready southern stores, Paul Burnip, ECLIPSE’s Sales Manager, said: “With Richer Sounds’ long-standing reputation for high-quality A/V installations we are delighted that these stores have chosen to feature ECLIPSE speakers in their demonstration rooms. As a result, a much wider audience of film and multi-channel music lovers can experience how ECLIPSE speakers can deliver the full benefits of an Atmos-based system.”
