Thank you very much for the information. But wandering how much micron is the copper on the board. I remember getting some PCB done from Visha and I could never touch a solder joint second time with the iron, the copper invariably came out with the solder.

Roushon

Folks:

I will travel for the first time to Chennai on business at the end of March. The day after I arrive will be my "recovery" day, during which my handlers will probably leave me alone (for the rest of the trip, a very nice team of people will convey / accompany me everywhere I need to go). My handlers will undoubtedly take me to cultural sites whenever we aren't working, so I'd like to use that first day as an audio shopping opportunity if at all possible.

Are there parts stores in Chennai? I can buy almost everything I need from my home in the US, but if there's a place to buy high quality, low-cost or hard-to-find parts in Chennai, I'd love to go shopping. If not, what would you recommend a sleep-deprived American do on his own?

Regards,
Scott

I know nothing about Audio shops in Chennai. But undoubtedly, if you are looking for genuine and high quality products you have to pay much more than what you pay in the USA. Because these high quality products are not made in India and hence imported, so the price includes shipping and (high) custom. For example whenever we import from the US we pay at least 30% more.

Edit: May be some of us will ask you to bring some parts from the US ...it is like when I was going to Greece for a conference I asked the same question in this forum to people from Greece....

Enjoy your stay in Chennai....

Regards
Roushon.

Miracle Transformers is based in Chennai [edit: not so, clarification below], they will be quite reasonable in pricing and if you are travelling, you can save a bit on freight. Maybe pre-order the units, and pick them when you're here?

Also, Eminence (except the USA version) and Beyma speakers are far cheaper in India than US, both the distributors are in Chennai. These are obviously all very heavy and you must freight them yourself - so baggage is an issue.

Plus, I do know Chennai is home to many audiophiles (not on this forum) and you may be able to spend some time listening to some really good setups. I am sure someone will be along and make you an offer.

Hi Scott, you are welcome to Bangalore. Only a short flight. Listen to some very good system, both by those on this forum and others.

Regards,

There are parts stores in Chennai, where you may get a few legacy parts - usually Japanese metal-can transistors from the 80s-90s, a few Allen Bradley carbon-comp resistors, and some odds and ends like silver mica and polystyrene caps. No tubes, except maybe some locally-made TV receiver glass-can stuff from the '80s.

IMHO, all of these are available on EBay at competitive prices, which can help avoid the inconvenience of trying to locate stuff at Ritchie Street in Chennai, which is usually very crowded and moderately filthy, even by Indian standards. It's OK for an old hand who can jump puddles and negotiate piles of garbage, but there is some risk for an outsider (no crime, but mainly the risk of catching some respiratory disease or slipping/falling in garbage).

With that not-so-pleasant description out of the way, there is always the possibility of finding some classic equipment in the bylanes off Riytchie Street. Most of this is high-quality e-waste from Singapore, so you can often lay your hands on a Marantz CD-63 or a Technics SL-series turntable or other classic gear for reasonable prices. Note that most of the stuff is as-is, so there may be missing functionality or scratches. Most of the stuff is fixable with some elbow grease.

My best find was a mint Technics SA-TX50 receiver for about the equivalent of USD 250, not dirt cheap, but very reasonable for desirable classic gear.

Miracles transformers is based in Bangalore. I've bought several transformers from them.

Chennai has another 'torroid' transformer maker. Not as good as Miracle from appearance point of view !

In case you are willing to meet audiophiles in Chennai, then they are in the forum hifivision.com. There are really great people out there...
