Default Looking for a parts supplier

I'm looking for a parts supplier that has realistic shipping charges, not inflated , fair prices on components perhaps even books from beginner to advanced topics and that will accept pay-pal as payment choice.Am I asking too much ? Does anyone have suggestions

Starting over from scratch is a pain.

Thanks for any suggestions
Tim

I've bought stuff from www.futurlec.com

They're pretty cheap and so is shipping. But, they are based in Asia, so shipping takes like 2 weeks for standard post. Also, I've had a problem with them sending me the wrong parts a few times. I don't think they take Paypal.

I had bad expierence with Reference Audio Mods, one year ago or so.
Ordered parts not arrived (and seems to be not sended at all).
Long email ping-pong wasn't help.
Beware.

Thanks for the links , question though , is it just me or is the prices at Reference Audio realy inflated ? Perhaps it just that I've been away from buying parts too long .
Thanks
Tim

Reference audio mods did short me (1) 1000uf Rubycon cap in an order and I didn't follow up out of laziness. It was a pain, but good thing that I didn't really care for them.
