Roberts Audio Video

Selling and custom-installing audio & video equipment since 1934

About Us: History


Roberts Audio Video has undergone many changes since our founding in 1934. The Electric Shop was founded by Robert Levinson to provide his community with the marvels of tomorrow.

Through education and friendly courteous service, he helped establish who we are today. Robert Levinson has since passed away and Roberts Audio Video is now in the hands of his son Barry.

Barry approaches the business the same way as his father did and has established Roberts Audio Video as the place to go for quality equipment and helpful advice.

Today we are serving the children of our original customers. They expect more from us than ever with the new technologies that have evolved. Digital Video Disc, Direct Broadcast Satellite, Glass Plasma video displays are not science fiction but fact and will be here tomorrow. Roberts will continue to be the leader through education of its customers and the loyalty of our present customers.

One of the best ways that we can stay up to date on the new technologies is through trade magazines and organizations. Several audio organizations have emerged to help the public understand new technology and become educated by properly informed members.

The Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association was founded in 1989 specializing in planning and installing single and multi-room entertainment systems, home automation and communication systems. Their mission is to educate and inform both consumers and installers to the technology that is available and set the standards for audio video systems.

The members of CEDIA are the elite dealers who are dedicated to supplying their customers with the highest level of service available. They must be established retail stores (not just someone who does it part time), insured, experienced and qualified in their specialized field.

Professional Audio Video Retailer Association is a nationwide organization of the best independent stores in the country. Their members are dedicated to providing expert advice, the highest quality products and friendly professional service. All PARA members are committed to operating a store that offers a pleasant comfortable environment, not super stores that push boxes out the door. You can be assured of the best system or component for you needs and budget.
