So, you’ve started your own online radio station, listed the equipment you want according to your budget and you’re ready to set up your studio! But you keep asking yourself the same questions: where can you find your microphone, mixer and all the necessary equipment for your online radio station? Here is a selection of shops where you can buy the best equipment possible without breaking the bank.
We’ll never say it enough: test your equipment before you buy it. What could be better than going to specialized stores in order to try out your possible future purchases. Get in touch with shops specialising in the sale of musical instruments or Hi-Fi equipment to buy your mixer, cables, etc…
Feel free to take a look at any possible bargains as well. You may be lucky enough to find a rare gem. Websites such as eBay or Gumtree are often full of good deals right next door. You can also take a look at auctions that could take place near you, for example Radio France regularly organizes auctions of its equipment, CDS or instruments.
