    Smart said that the store is "hardware-only", and isn't designed to cannibalise other JB Hi-Fi sites in the Sydney CBD that offer software and hardware.

    JB Hi-Fi even has its own Apple Store inside the Westfield-based concept. However, Smart said that this concept store is not going to be rolled out for all JB Hi-Fi stores around Australia.

    As usual, all models are live and able to view only the best content on the store's Wi-Fi network.

  • I like that they have headphones available to try, if there is one thing that annoys me to no end it's the amazing differences between 2 similar headphones, and usually you've got no way to tell what's good and what's bad.

  • It's like a scruffy kid dressed up for church. Looks prettier but same ratbag kid.

  • I like how everything looks slick, hi-tech and stylish yet they still have their tacky, scrappy looking hand written price cards that look like they are from a dodgy $2 shop.
