Our Story


Wavesound was established in 2008 to provide Australian Libraries with the best global selection of contemporary titles available in Large Print, Audio and Downloadable product.

A subsidiary of WF Howes (UK) and Recorded Books US (1979), a premier educational and professional publisher dedicated to creating the finest books, audio products, periodicals, software and online services.

We saw the need to provide individual local attention, service and support to the renowned Clipper Brands in the Australian library market.

Since 2008, Wavesound has gone on to introduce the Lamplight, Avid, Jammer, Jammer Teen, Nudged, Centrepoint Westerns, Blackstone, and Dr Who imprints exclusively to the Australian library market.

In 2015 we launched the Wavesound Audiobook Imprint, dedicated exclusively to showcasing Australian Authors, Stories and Narrators. Now available in CD, MP3 and eAudio through RBdigital, the imprint has been an outstanding success.

We've also brought libraries our exclusive RBdigital audiobooks, eBooks, eMagazines and eComics platform, the single most successful digital service in Australian libraries today!

Add The Great CoursesTransparent Language Online, Hoonuit, ArtistWorks and IndieFlix and Wavesound truly is the only place libraries need to go for content.
