David Robinson, Chairman of Richer Sounds, said about the award: "We are honoured and delighted to be granted this Royal Warrant of Appointment – this a wonderful start to 2011!"
Richer Sounds was recently praised for coming out well in a Which? investigation that looked at the competence of staff at various major electronic retailers.
In the report, the consumer charity said: "Richer Sounds was the chain with the highest number of visits we rated as excellent or good for advice about televisions. In general, it was the most accurate about sound quality and one branch was the best of all the stores we visited at explaining the difference between HD Ready and full HD."
