DIY Supplies

top rated audio part suppliers

The popularity of vintage audio is so high that it seems you can find someone selling “parts” around every corner. We’d like to help you narrow down your choices to people and companies that sell quality parts. The last thing you want is to finish repairing or restoring a piece of audio gear, only to have it fail because you got a bad part. This list will grow and change over time. We are open to adding trusted resellers as long as we can verify with multiple references. Some of these suppliers are hobbyists with a proven track record over time. Contact us if you have a company that offers quality parts and friendly service.
