Is there a preferred or "common" supplier of "audiophile" grade polypropylene caps, metal film resistors, etc., like PE seems to be for such a wide variety of stuff?

BTW, I looked at PE - they have a few things, but the selection seems limited. So who do you guys go to when building crossovers and such for good quality parts at good prices?

PE, Madisound, MCM Electronics, Speaker City. GR-Research also sells high quality crossover components at a good price - and "audiophile" quality at, well, "audiophile" prices. Posted Image

BTW, I mean active crossovers, which generally means small capacitance values, low wattage resistors, discrete op-amps, etc.

Digikey's great up to the usual 1% metal resistors and polypropylene capacitors that I would use, but if you really want to be absurd, you can try Michael Percy, he sells exotic components (at exotic prices). http://www.percyaudio.com

Mouser (www.mouser.com) has Xicon brand polystyrene capacitors in small values (100pf to 10,000pf) for 22 cents to 38 cents each. They also have metalized polyproylene capacitors.

Digikey is good. For some of the more exotic stuff, you might try...

How about North Creek Music Systems? George's parts are more "quality at whatever the cost". Not to say they would be considerd the best by everyone, but they seem to sound awesome in my Rhythm's. . .
