    Buying equipment in Canada

    Hi Guys,

    I was wondering where you guys in Canada buy your gear? It seems everything is more expensive here. I'm looking to buy a new controller, still don't know which one. But, for example, I can't find the DDJ-SX under 1,100$ on Canadian's website, though I can find great deals around 700$ in USA, but doesn't ship to canada, or it cost 150$ to ship here. Even second hand is hard to fin.

    Do you guys know a good store here or online store with better pricing or I might pay the extra ?

    Thanks

    Unfortunatly as Canadians, we're stuck paying high prices for electronics.

    The loonie sucks atm....Thanks Obama





    No but really, I plan on grabbing a Rane 62 (or TTM57Mk2 now) from our friends in the USA and just paying HST over the Ontario border. Since Rane is manufactured in the States there is no tariff to bring it Canuck side.



    You can get a 62 down there for $2000...where as the CHEAPEST I've seen it here in Canada is like $2600 before tax.

    Kijiji/Craigslist... If you're new to buying used gear I suggest you really do your research before you commit to buying something from these classifieds

    Moog Audio (MTL & Toronto)... A little pricey but they have everything you could want

    Long and Mcquade (IMO fair prices considering the value of the loonie).... This is place is your best bet to get gear slightly cheaper and they do sell used equipment.

    Canada Computers... Depending on which location you might be able to find a bunch of gear. But no used stuff.

    If you really factor in the exchange rate and shipping costs you're pretty much spending the same amount when buying from the U.S. Like try finding something on Ebay. You'll find that shipping will cost you a good chunk making it better to buy locally. Using classifieds is a good way to see what the market is like for certain gear when buying used. Just don't get hoodwinked because there are sooo many shady ass sellers out there.

    Try Electric Sound Crew and AV Shop. They sell equipments thru ebay. Just go to their website. Some of their items are free shipping.
