About Us

Bespoke home entertainment systems designed to meet your requirements

Norman Hobbs is an independent tv and hi-fi retailer based in West Sussex, providing bespoke home entertainment systems designed to meet your individual requirements.

As well as our tv and hi-fi retail showroom in Haywards Heath, we have unrivalled experience assisting clients with their audio visual systems, hi fi systems and audio equipment, multi room systems and home cinema installations across Sussex, Surrey, London and Europe.

Founded back in the 1950's by Norman Hobbs, the Company originally focused on electrical contracting. However, in 1989, Norman's Nephew, Marcus took over the running of the business and with his passion for music and films, the Company soon changed direction to focus on hi-fi systems, television systems, audio equipment, multi-room systems and custom home cinema installations.

With a strong team behind Marcus, Norman Hobbs has grown from strength to strength and now boasts large showrooms in Haywards Heath with two dedicated audio and visual demonstration rooms.

Although our showrooms are open 6 days a week, private appointments outside of normal opening hours can be arranged at a time to suit you. With certain visual and audio equipment, we can bring the demonstration to you so that you can really experience the sound and vision in your own home.

Custom installation for multi rooms and home cinemas has been a major part of what Norman Hobbs offer for over 10 years.

Our unrivalled support also means that we can offer our clients a 24 hour a day, 7 days a week call out service.

The Norman Hobbs staff regularly undergo training to stay ahead with the fast pace of technology and ensure that we are continuously aware of tomorrow's technology so that we can offer the best advice, products and service to our clients.

We pride ourselves in only stocking and recommending tv, hi-fi and audio products and manufacturers that deliver with performance and build quality, whatever the budget.

The Norman Hobbs team are enthusiasts as well as perfectionists, which ensures we provide the very highest level of customer service.

"At a time when changes to televisions and video recorders seem to occur every few weeks, I was pleased to find a shop whose staff not only knew their products but would explain, with infinite patience to a (very) OAP the technicalities of HDD, DVB, HD etcetera and then demonstrate them on alternative equipment and finally install my choice of equipment at home. So thanks to Peter and his colleagues at Norman Hobbs I can now look forward to the next innovation with equanimity." Mr Platt
