    It's very easy to get hold of amps, and drivers, crossovers etc for speakers, but who can supply the niggly little bits, like proper spike/rubber feet sets or the bits to hold on grills?

    Ideas chaps?

    Not if you get their weekly sale catalogues for account holders. The hardware prices are very good anyway, one of the cheapest I know of that deliver next day (free for orders over £30 +).
    For reference Horny, CPC is Farnell. :lesson: ;)

    The RS bits ordered yesterday evening arrived this morning.

    Good job I'm off with coldy/flu thing, or no-one would have been in to collect it.

    Very quick and efficient though. Hope CPC are as quick.

    My purchasing dept say RS are still not part of Farnell. The Farnell group are getting bigger all the time though so who knows.

    The 'big three' seem to be RS, Farnell InOne?CPS and Maplin. There are a few others about, Hills in Watford can be very good for some parts also.

    I find maplin are much more expensive than cpc. Phono plugs for example are more expensive for good ones.
    Maplin are in lots of towns though. Cpc are in Preston only. This only matters of course if you need to get the parts immediately.
