Default Supply store in NYC

Just moved to the Bronx. Unfortunately, in the move one of the channels in my 41hz amp 5 is now dead, though I think its just a loose connection. Probably need some new wiring, and may want a terminal strip er whatever they call those things you solder to a pcb and then screw down on a wire. If anyone has suggestions for a supply shop in the NYC area, I'd be thrilled.

Thanks!

Anyone?? I actually fixed the problem, one of the output inductors came loose, just as they suggested on 41hz forums.

But I'd still like to know where NY diy'ers get their supplies. Its a big city, theres gotta be some place in the greater NY are.

Other than Leeds Electronics in Brooklyn I have no idea. They have a website - try Google.

The problem you are facing is the area of Manhattan that used to be known as "Radio Row" was torn down to build some office towers in the 1970's - you may have heard of them - the World Trade Center.

There may be something left on 45th St between 5th and 6th Avenues, but, I doubt it.

By around 1980 parts became really hard to source in NYC.

Default Pro audio stores, Sam Ash, Dale Pro Audio.

You can get raw cable, connectors, and some other useful parts at the pro audio shops, but I haven't been able to find a store that sells IC's, capacitors, etc. Newark and digi-key deliver very quickly and would probably be the best way to get the parts you need.

I live in the boonies in SC and sometimes I get my Newark orders the next day if i order early...Newark ROCKS then I use Mouser and Digikey in that order. Tech DIY a vendor on this website has hard to source parts as well as offering transistor matching for those of us that are too lazy to do those kind of things .

Regards, Elwood

Yah know, Loral Corp used to assemble some of their black-magic e-warfare stuff in the North Bronx...suggest you stop worrying about parts and focus on the restaurants like Roberto's or Zero Otto Nove on Arthur Avenue!

Manhattan Electronics on 45th bet 5&6 has a decent selection (they might be gone as google doesn't see them anymore), though it's mostly CB radio supplies. Expect to pay many times what the parts are worth. Last time I was there a generic LED was $5 each and a mini toggle was $12. Otherwise, as others have said the usual mail order suppliers are your friend.
