Relax, and put your wallet back in your pocket. There are plenty of audio bargains just waiting for a click of your mouse. Whether you are bargain shopping, downloading or just poking around, the Internet is a great place to find just about anything in the audio world. So make a list, check it twice and let's go surfing for bargains.

Shop Till You Drop

There are many price-shopping opportunities on the Internet. eBay is one of the best places to score a bargain. Whether you're looking for mic cables, interfaces, software or a replacement clip for an obscure lapel mic, you can probably find it on eBay. It's also a great place to see what things are worth, if you're in a selling mood. eBay is like the world's biggest yard sale - there are incredible values and some real stinkers in there somewhere. It's up to you to sort them out. Be sure to check the seller's statistics and feedback for positive numbers. Be sure to pay for your purchase with PayPal or some other method that offers fraud protection.

Sites like Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Yahoo Shopping and Overstock.com offer both new and used versions of popular training books and software. There are often excellent reviews of the products and insights from previous owners to help you sort the hype from reality. Google Products, PriceGrabber and MySimon are comparison sites to help you find the lowest price on the Internet. Once you know what you want, just type in the make and model number and sort by price. You'll also find ratings on the suppliers, based on in-stock quantities and their ability (or inability) to get the product out the door on time.
