Innovative Audio, LLC is OPEN FOR BUSINESS

Innovative Audio, LLC has opened for business situated in Denison, Iowa. Just like you’ve come to expect from our Canadian division, our U.S. store is expected to be just as successful.

Our contact info is as follows:

Please contact us for an appointment as we do not have drop-ins available just yet.

Because of this growth we are also looking for some people to work for us. Currently we are looking for:

  1. Office manager/receptionist part-time to start. Has to be able to look after all facets of the front office as well as handle customer inquiries, complete paperwork and follow up.
  2. Service technician who can work on vintage audio equipment, mainly turntables, vintage receivers, amplifier and preamps. Experience with speaker repairs is a great asset. Those who only have experience with newer equipment need not apply – we need a technician who can read schematics and is detail oriented and can decipher the problem and repair it efficiently. Good soldering skills are required.

Please send your resume to No phone calls are being accepted at this time.

We look forward to servicing the Iowa area.

Have older (say late 60’s, 70’s and early ’80’s) working or non-working equipment that you don’t know what to do with? We do! Give us a call or email a list of what you have and we will see how we can help you out. Check out our what do we buy  page for more information.

Stay tuned for more info – we think you’re going to love it!


Store Vacation – Closed from Aug.28 to Sept.7


We are closing the store for a short vacation.  Last day open is Friday, August 27 5:00pm and reopen again on Tuesday, September 7th at 10:00am.  We will not be returning emails or phone calls during this time.  Please ensure if we asked you to pickup your repaired equipment you make arrangements to do that before we close.  They will be available, of course, upon our return.

All of our staff are looking forward to recharging their batteries and getting ready for the fall and winter and all that it brings music wise.  Just like in prior years no doubt wait times for estimates and repairs will get longer as the weather changes and we turn to indoor activities.  We suggest you don’t bring your equipment in at the last minute – it will be a very quiet winter for you otherwise!

Store closed:  Saturday, August 28

Reopen:  Tuesday, September 7th

See you soon!




The store will be closed to celebrate Canada Day on Thursday, July 1st

The show room and repair pickup/dropoff will also be closed on Friday and Saturday – July 2nd and 3rd.

BUT GOOD NEWS – the RECORD ROOM will be open on Friday and Saturday – regular store hours.  Mark will be bringing in more and more good LPs for you to enjoy your summer days with, so come on by and check out his great selection.

We will be fully open again on Tuesday, July 6th – 10 am



POP-UP GARAGE SALE – June 20th 9:00am – FATHER’S DAY

What would summer be without a Garage Sale????

Yup, after sorting, cleaning and feeling the need to NOT let our customers down we decided to have a garage sale on June 20th 2021.  WEATHER PERMITTING, of course!

Now, before you start getting all excited there are quite a few things you need to know first;

Due to Covid restrictions that are still in place ALL PEOPLE ATTENDING ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR MASKS!  No, not halloween types so let’s show respect to others by doing our part. It should go without saying that if you are exhibiting symptoms of cold, flu or just not feeling well, PLEASE STAY HOME.

Do you want to participate too?  We are not officially having vendors sign-up but if you want to arrive and setup your own table/booth, we ask that you space yourself out and come prepared to be on your own.

ALSO if you venture into the store, please use the hand sanitizer.  Inside our store we need to keep it clean, so we ask that you help us out and sanitize before wandering through.

The number of people allowed within the store will be limited as well, so please be patient and wait your turn to enter if we are at  capacity.

Our first garage sale was in 2008, and we have had one every year with each bigger and better than the last. As much as we wanted to do something spectacular this year, world events have continued to change those plans dramatically so we’ll start slow and build for next year (fingers crossed). We’ve scaled it down so people can still have fun, find some great bargains, and dig through piles of awesome audio stuff!

So mark your calendars for 9am June 20th – FATHER’s DAY, bring a pocket of cash and come on down!  Event will continue on until mid-afternoon or until we’re SOLD out.

NO EARLY BIRDS! It’s not fair to others and we will be enforcing this.

There will be no food truck or other types of refreshments available – sorry.

Looking forward to seeing you all…… from a distance….. a few at a time!



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.
