Where to get better electronic components

Radio Shack stuff is not that great. Anyone have any better recommendations for electronic components, like audio plugs, etc...? In this case I'm building a mic to fit in my helmet to attach to my garmin. Plugs, connectors, etc.. from RS are not very high quality. However, local HW stores don't sell this kind of stuff any more.


...enter something catchy here....

Depending on what you are looking for, you could try http://www.easternbeaver.com/
Powerlet is also on that link.

Also, you could email the above link and get a better recommendation.

I'd suggest Mouser (www.mouser.com) or DigiKey (www.digikey.com).
