Equipment Repairs: Current Wait Times

Updated May 13


We are no longer repairing multi-track recording decks effective immediately.

UPDATE:  Currently we are approximately 5-6 weeks until we will be able to look at your unit to estimate and then approximately 2-3 weeks to repair after you give us your approval. It also depends on whether parts need to be ordered. Expect longer delays if parts need to be ordered in from the USA.  We will keep you posted as these dates change.



We will be closed for the Victoria Day long weekend:  Closed from Saturday, May 22 and reopen for business again on Tuesday May 25th.

Hopefully you find something “musical” to listen to this weekend.


EASTER Long Weekend Closure

Spring is in the air and that means Easter is almost upon us.

We will be closed for the Easter long weekend:  Closed from Friday, April 2nd and reopen for business again on Tuesday April 6th.

Hopefully you find some hidden easter eggs this weekend.  Have a blessed holiday!

Christmas Holiday Hours 2020

Christmas scene


As the year comes to a close, I usually take some time to reflect what it has meant to me – from the good to the not so good. I am grateful to each of you that has included Innovative Audio in some small way. I am fortunate that our team was able to provide you with vintage audio repairs and sales and look forward to continuing that same dedication as we enter into our 17th year of operation.

As we have done in the past, we close our shop during the holidays to allow our staff some down time to really enjoy the season. As a family-run shop, we want that time to be spent with the ones who get us out of bed every morning and ensure that we are back home in time to enjoy the family moments. This Christmas, maybe more than ever, we need to embrace how fortunate we are to have each other and to enjoy the simple moments in our lives.

With that, I want to thank all of our great customers for a truly awesome year. Our doors still being open is a testament to that dedication of our loyal supporters. We may have been closed for a period of time because of Covid-19, but we reopened again with a  brand new showroom and vinyl room and we appreciate everyone sharing their thoughts on the job we did.

On a personal note I want to thank my dedicated staff who have been with me for a very long time and are the main reason we have the reputation we do. Without you, this job would be that much tougher and I want to say I couldn’t have done this without you. You are an amazing team and I am grateful you a part of this journey. I look forward to continuing to work with you all in 2021.

From all of us at Innovative Audio, we want to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Until 2021,

Closed to Observe Remembrance Day

We’ll be closed for Remembrance Day, Wednesday – November 11th.  We will reopen on Thursday, November 12th  at 10:00am




New & Updated Policies

UPDATE:  As of November 1st we require all customers coming into our store to wear masks.

We’re doing something different than other companies – instead of raising prices to recover our losses over the past few months, we’re going the opposite direction and giving all of our customers a break!

  1. We are now posting prices including tax! No more trying to figure out the total price – it’s right there on the tag. This includes all equipment for sale except consignments (items ending in 99¢). It also does not include repairs or record purchases, posters, record art vinyl, turntable parts & accessories.
  2. Just in case you missed it, our NEW store hours are10:00 am to 5:00 pm Tuesday to Friday, 10:00 am to 4:00pm on Saturday. We are closed Sunday, Monday, and statutory holidays.
  3. As always, any item picked up in-store comes with a 30 day (item priced under $500) or 90 day (item priced over $500) warranty. Turntable purchases come with a 6-month warranty for a item priced under $500 and a 1-year warranty for items priced over $500.
  4. All items are tested and the pictures you see on our website are the actual items we have for sale – no stock photos.  We most likely will not know the history or past usage of the unit unless it is disclosed to us by the previous owner.
  5. We do not sell non-working items. Everything that needs to be repaired will have been done before we put it on the floor for sale. We will disclose any defects in the item description.
  6. Consignment items come with a 30-day warranty only, regardless of price.
  7. All items can be demonstrated in our showroom to ensure it’s exactly what you are looking to purchase. Should the item not fit your system when it goes home, we can offer to exchange the item within two weeks of purchase. If there isn’t something currently available that fits your needs, we will return your purchase price for Store Credit ONLY. There is no expiry date with store credit. We do not offer refunds unless an item cannot be repaired, or is deemed too expensive to repair. Then (and only then) we will offer you your money back.
  8. We no longer ship large speakers, but will continue to ship bookshelf speakers.
