    Stereoland is a good place, and they have stores in downtown Minneapolis and in Eden Prairie. I've never visited their Eden Prairie store, but have purchased quite a few things from the Minneapolis store.
    I believe Audio Perfection is also located in Eden Prairie, or very nearby.

    Also be sure to check out Sound Center. They have a store in the Galleria off of France Ave. They have quite a good selection of stuff there, although their store is too small in my opinion.

    Stereoland in Eden Prairie is also a good place to go. I've been in there several times and have drooled at the gear every time.

    Matt,
    If it's not to late,
    Just in case you find something you want to purchase,
    Be sure to print out the online coupons.
    They will not give you that extra discount without them.
    I keep spares copies in both our vehicles, Just in case[​IMG]

    There's a BOSE store in the mall of america... [​IMG]
    As others have mentioned, Stereoland is a great shop. There's also a place up around I-394 and Hwy 100 called Halsten. Haven't been there in a couple years, but they seem to be decent. There's also Great Plains off of I-394 and Hopkins Crossroad...

    As you can see from the posts, there is nothing "in" The Mall of America (unless you want to kill 3 minutes in Circuit City Express!).

    As others have mentioned, StereoLand (brands include: Pardigm, NHT, Monitor Audio, Maratnz, NAD, Sunfire, Anthem) in the "Uptown" area which is a couple of miles south of downtown Minneapolis (see if Mark is available). They have a newer store out in Eden Prairie, as well.

    Audio Perfection is a more upscale store which is in Richfield on Lyndale Ave (right hand side of the street) about 1 mile north of 494 which is probably only about 5 minutes from the MOA.

    Audio King for Krell, Def Tech, Adcom, etc...

    Audio Perfection is funky - $ Millions, but they don't spend a dime on the building?

    They had a 3 year old NHT center that I wanted, but they asked list price for it. Nice stuff, though. The big JM LAbs, Vandy, Wadia, crazy stuff.
