EMI Audio originally specialized in pro audio repair but soon branched out to installation, rentals and sales. We operated out of a small store front on Johnson St in Northeast Minneapolis for many years.


Thanks to our unique team and loyal customers, our business expanded and we outgrew the Johnson St location. EMI Audio now resides in a 30,000 SQ FT building in downtown Robbinsdale, MN. In early 2019, we decided to open a new branch of the company - online commerce. Now specializing in rentals & sales, installation, repair and e-commerce of everything pro audio, video & lighting.

Since 1973, EMI Audio has always strived to give our customers the absolute best experience possible. We will continue to put customer service at the top of our list as we believe this is the foundation of any great, small business such as ours. We hope you give us the opportunity to serve you and all of your pro AV needs today, tomorrow and into the future.
