So you've done your research into the ideal gear for you - the next step is to buy it. There are many places to get the hardware from - online, mail order and high street dealers being the main places. If you know exactly what you want then online and mail order would suit your needs but if you still feel the need to test drive the required hardware, a visit to the showroom is in order. FInd one in your area in the listing below.

Buying advice

Shop around. Bearing in mind the kind of money you're likely to be spending, deals can be cut. The price shown in the advert or on the website isn't usually the price you pay. Provided you can prove the price you've been quoted to another dealer, you'd be surprised at just how much may be cut from the original quoted price. You don't know the particular circumstances for a particular dealer - they may have overstocked on a particular product and need to shift some boxes quickly. In my case, a pair of Numark TTX1's, a Rane TTM56 and Shure 44-7's listed at £1450. Eventually, after a couple of hours of email ping pong between 2 dealers, the price dropped to £1190 with a free face plate thrown in for the Rane.

Next - seek advice from others who have used particular dealers. Everyone has their own experiences - good and bad. Ask people you know and log into some of the forums listed here.
