Wellington's Hi-Fi Specialists since 1990!

The Real Music Company was established in Wellington, New Zealand in 1990 by a clever audiophile who built his own amplifiers while searching the world for a brand that met his exacting standards.

Our team has an unmatched reputation as Wellington’s Hi-Fi Specialists, with over 30 years’ of combined experience in hi-fi, audio-visual, and the wider music business. We offer a carefully-selected range of Hi-Fi products as well as Televisions, Home Theatre and Whole-House High-Definition Entertainment systems. We represent only what we believe are the best brands on the market, and we install and service everything we sell.

We’re as passionate about music, sound and movies as you are... Come and have a chat – you’ll find us helpful, friendly, knowledgeable and honest.

Named one of “the five best hi-fi shops in the world” (Arena Magazine UK, April 2002)

We sell specialist Hi-Fi and Home Theatre products encompassing traditional two-channel audio, home theatre systems, multi-room audio, and whole-house high-definition entertainment systems.

We offer customer consultation, product demonstration, delivery and installation, system design and project management. We have a repair service and we’re well known for our focus on after-sales care.

You can’t buy a hi-fi or home theatre system when you’re pressured into making decisions. We encourage you to make an appointment to talk through your requirements with us over coffee at our shop, where you’ll be able to take your time and relax in our dedicated listening room. You can listen to a variety of equipment in an environment that feels more like a home than a store. We’ll manage the process at your pace, allowing fair product comparison.

Don’t think it’s going to cost the earth for this level of service. We will work with your budgets and give you the same individual, high quality service whether you’re buying your first system or upgrading to a top of the range multi-room system.

We are very experienced at installing equipment and systems and we have qualified sub-contractors on call for larger projects.
