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...)
