Heyy Dine....best place for parts in Toronto is Active Surplus loacted on Queen st and Spadina..this place is huge.....I spend half a day in there easy.
there is another place just North of the city called SAYAL....they are located at Victoria Park and Steeles....they also have a great selection......if you really adventurous you can go into mississauga and there is a place on Matheson rd and Dixie it has about 5 different electronic stores in one strip plaza.....one of the store specializes in Audioparts and supplies.........Have Fun!!!!


Cheers!!The DIRT®

And don't forget about small Chinese store right beside Active Surplus, Supertronic. Some good deals on pots, transformers and connectors and just about anything else.

I always get their name wrong, too similar to Supersonic, which is something like Digi-Key and located Gordon Baker and Victoria Park area. Catalog sales only, but on spot.

Yeah, Electrosonic

Also Sayal in Mississauga, at Dixie and Mattheson, is probably bigger and has better selection than Scarborough location.
