Recommendations - Electronic stores

I'm wanting to buy an in-dash DVD receiver, and was curious where folks shop for their electronics. I'm from Canada, so up until recently many (most?) of the stores were off-limits.

I've heard of Crutchfield, and am familiar with the big box stores like BestBuy...

Where would you go to buy something like this dvd receiver?

Thanks in advance

Funnily enough, I went to my local Best Buy and wandered into the Car Audion section - that's where I thought I was most likely to find a small dvd receiver thingy (that's the technical term I believe ) and the Best Buy guy looked at me like I was from Mars - they didn't have anything like that.

I'm not sure if guy was having a bad day, or if Best Buy in Canada doesn't sell that type of equipment, but it wasn't impressive all the same.

Love Crutchfield inparticular if you have questions or a tough install, use Amazon too.

You can imagine the look they gave me when I wanted to replace my cassette deck!

I would suggest Crutchfield. There are cheaper sites, but at Crutchfield you will get a much higher support level, an excellent web site and super service. They are the Land's End/ LL Bean of the electronics world.

You might give FRY's a try. I have found them to be the best price of all...They have stores in some of the larger cities and have a pretty broad selection. I have purchased various electronic equipment from them and have always been pleased

Did you try Future Shop, MacFrodge?

Yes, I know that Best Buy owns them now, but the selection is usually different.

Crutchfield is good if you have the technical know-how to install car audio equipment. They have a great tech support to walk you through install questions and a great online site for research. If not, do you have any local car audio stores? We have a bunch around here that are chains and do a good, clean job installing.
