About Us

JB Hi-Fi was established in 1974 by Mr John Barbuto (JB), trading from a single store in East Keilor, Victoria, Australia. He had one simple philosophy: to deliver a specialist range of Hi-Fi and recorded music at the lowest prices.

JB Hi-Fi rapidly grew in Australia and now has over 200 stores nationwide. JB Hi-Fi moved to New Zealand in 2007 with the acquisition of Hill & Stewart. There are now 15 stores throughout the country and is New Zealand’s largest home and entertainment specialist.

With the original philosophy at the core of the business, JB stores offer the world's leading brands of computers, mobile phones, tablets, TVs, cameras, Hi-Fi, speakers, home theatre, portable audio and stacks more.

JB also offers the largest range of games, recorded music, DVD music + Blu-Ray and DVD movies and TV shows, all at cheap prices! Everything electrical you are after is available in one of our stores or online.

JB Hi-Fi has it all - best brands, huge range, cheapest prices, convenient locations, but most importantly genuine personal service from our experienced specialist staff.
