Established in 1974
Established during mid December 1974 and on line since 1995, Sound World became Newcastle's most successful independent record store business chain. Within several months of opening its first Sound World, it commenced a second retail store. By 1981, Sound World had acquired its third store, this time in one of Newcastle's largest retail complexes, Garden City Kotara, (now Westfield).
During the mid 80's and up into the 90's, Sound World expanded it's retail stores further into the Hunter valley by opening a store in the heart of the Maitland CBD. Sound World continued to expand with the opening of it's Mega Store in the heart of the Newcastle Central Business District.
Sound World was founded by Spero Davias, elehtrologos, electrical contractor, and an electronics technician. It's primary roll was as a record retail music store and secondly as an extension to Spero's existing electronic workshops who amongst other ventures, designed and built thermionic valve amplifiers and PA's for various venues and bands throughout Australia. Musos, still talk about the sweet rich sounds of the old valve type amplifier.
During 2006, Sound World undertook a major restructure, winding down all its bricks-and-mortar local retail business outlets and outsourcing it's 'on line' music sales from the world's leading music providers. Today, Sound World is concentrating on the hi tech electronics market, importing and distribution of tech products as well as investigating and marketing new technology, when and as it comes along.
