Quality Vendor for Audio?

Can anyone suggest a good retailer for buying audio equipment. I usually purchase through B&H (and have been really happy with them in the past), but I need this equipment soon and B&H is closed until May 1st. Any suggestions on who/who not to buy from? Thanks for any input.

This site has other trusted sponsors, and there is some overlap in offerings. I recommend that you check out the home page for descriptons and links.

Not sure what you're looking for, but I almost always order audio stuff from Sweetwater (http://sweetwater.com). But always call; their website doesn't show if they have items in stock, but you can find out easily over the phone. And they are a music store, so they might not carry what you're looking for.

EVS is great, Trew is great. B&H is great. Overall, I think B&H has the greatest support, but with them being closed for Passover....I'd be calling EVS.

I'd also look at Northern Light & Sound

I purchased my Sennheiser EW100 & G2 equipment from them.

I've found that they've got great prices on equipment (once you find the item online, you need to call or e-mail them to receive the price & they don't take online orders).

Plus, they don't charge for standard (UPS Ground) shipping.
