I understand what you mean Masood, but this forum is for people who are addicted to this hobby...money comes later...sometimes I am also surprised and ask myself `why am I
doing this...' but find no answer...an addiction is an addiction...I tried to run away from it...
but it did not work....see what is written below diyaudio above...

If you are after some parts that will easilly fit into an envelope and can be posted. Please do ask us outside of India. P&P is relatively cheap and we can send you the bits at almost cost price.

PayPal is a wonderful tool.

100g is about 2.50 to send from the UK.

Thanks KatieandDad for the offer, that will make life simpler...

I purchased parts from futurlec couple of times, it is cheap and reliable but
little slow in delivery...exotic parts may not be available..give a try..

Indian businessmen want to survive only on bluffing and nobody reads what is written in the book and everybody is inherently knowledgeable.

Yes, it is a costly hobby only because our development has been zero in this field, and we have to pay according to the western living costs.
Only for the craze of this hobby, I bought two speakers that cost me as much as a good two wheeler.

We cannot even buy a driver with T/S parameters specified, made locally.

This is a painful fact. Good product if not available in India we import it, but
as soon as the product reaches India, there is absolutely no guarantee what
will happen to it...one Fostex driver was destroyed by Fedex (or the custom)
and another Fostex driver was desroyed by Foreign post office in India (or
again by custom)....at the moment I am fighting with RS components India
regarding incorrect description of a product in their website....it is all for
love...

For some of my builds I've taken to Ebay.

If you're OK with paying about 1000 for shipping across a bunch of orders totalling about 20-25k, it's a pretty good deal.

The only question is parts quality, and I'm happy to inform you that there are few issues with some of the better sellers. The key is to not look at the lowest price or highest reputation, but the inventory. A seller who depends almost exclusively on small-ticket sales will be playing on the fringes, those that have large, high quality and rare parts inventory can be trusted for most common requirements.

Recently I have purchased Holco resistors, Nichicon Muse caps, chips and PCBs for chipamps, cases, R-core transformers (both expensive but well worth the money), stepped attenuator parts, connectors etc.

In some cases you have to buy more than you need for a project - but the fun of DIY is that you keep building so the parts end up being used at some point.
