List of music stores in...

Sydney:

Pro Audio:
Sound Devices - CBD (Fostex, Genelecs, others on the shelf)
Allans Music - CBD and Alexandria (more PA than great synth and monitor selection)
Intermusic - Bondi Junction (Focals, Mackies, maybe Tannoys on the shelf)
Turrumurra Music - Turrumurra
Billy Hydes - Camperdown

Synths:
Intermusic - Bondi Junction
Hutchings Keyboards - Bondi Junction/Bellevue Hill
Sound Devices - CBD

Guitars:
Intermusic - Bondi Junction (they have some cool boutique pedals, but mostly it's a fairly run of the mill Ibanez and Fender affair)
Allans - CBD, Alexandria
Billy Hydes - Camperdown
Guitar Factory - Annandale
Bass People - Annandale (Used to be The Bass Player... Not quite as cool anymore, but still lots of basses)
Jackson's Rare Guitars - Annandale (Got too much money buddy? You can buy your pre-war Martin here for $30K.)
Global Vintage - Annandale (these guys sell lots of cool guitar gear ... heaps of secondhand vintage shit, boutique pedals and heaps of Japanese imports - I haven't been since they moved from the city three years ago, though)
?? - Redfern (I know there's a shop - I think it's on Botany Rd)

In general, if you're looking for guitars, it's worth heading to Parramatta Rd, Annandale - there's a strip of about eight guitar shops.

DJ Gear
DJ Warehouse - Petersham
Lightsounds - Darlinghurst and Petersham
Spank! Records - Darlinghurst
Store DJ - Darlinghurst

Nice list...

Dj Warehouse has some nice Pro Gear now!
Yep, and the prices ain't that bad either.

If I have to get something I always check JRRshop.com in the USA.
Its amazingly cheap and has crazy specials as well.
The people are really nice and easy to deal with as well.



I normally head over to Turra if I want something straight away.
My 2 UAD-1 cards are starting to play up abit....

UAD-2 here we come! (did you see the new Manley EQ??? DAMN!)

dauntless....
Drum n Bass Producer and DJ for No Frills and Locus.
I also run a website about drum n bass production tips/reviews and samples etc.

Check out my Native Instruments Maschine Review

I found a cool site for sample spotters.

I was just thinking of how deadmau5's Brazil sounded very similar to Alexis Jordan's Happiness, so I searched Google and found that site, which verified that, indeed, Happiness sampled the music from Brazil.

Handy for setting up monitors in non-ideal rooms: boundary cancellation and room modes.
