Anyone know of stores in the Vancouver, BC, Canada area that sell components for a DIYer? I'm mainly looking for electronics components (semiconductors, inductors, power supply transformers, etc), speaker building components (speaker drivers, speaker box grills, crossovers, acoustic damping material, etc), and a few misc items like cases for home-made amplifier and heatsinks. Basically, I'm looking for stores that sell the type of stuff that PartsExpress.com has. I know where to get construction materials for building speaker boxes (that's pretty obvious... Home Depot), and I know of some electronics stores like RP Electronics and Lee's Electronics, but if anyone knows of other places that'd be great. I'm mainly looking for local stores so I can avoid the high shipping and duty charges that go along with buying internationally.

Thanks for the replies everyone. If anyone knows of other stores near Vancouver, or anywhere else in Canada, that'd be great.

www.partsconnexion.com is another good one in Canada, I think they are in Ontario somewhere.... I've ordered from www.audiyo.com as well and been happy with everything. also, for someone in Vancouver www.diycable.com is in Port Angeles WA just across the way I think if i'm not mistaken...been awhile since i've been out that way.. Might be closer to Victoria..
