Another vote for Surplustronics, definately worth looking at. Jaycar
aren't bad, but (dare I say it) they're a lot more like DSE used to be,
than they used to be.
Note their address is 520 Queen St; not 'Upper Queen St' which is on the
other side of Karangahape Rd. It's probably a 20 minute walk to the
venue from there.
(DSE themselves are a joke these days, in case anyone was wondering; I
say this as a former employee...)
