Why not just buy it on Allegro and save yourself a trip? I recently went all over looking for a large diaphragm condenser mic but there was nothing available in shops selling electronics. Allegro is good for specialist stuff.
Good idea - thanks. I've not signed up at Allegro yet, but will have a look there. Ideally would be some kind of shop with a website, where I can look at the pictures to find out the Polish name for what I'm looking for. What I love about Maplins is you can shop online or in the store. (Their website will usually give you an idea of stock levels in the shops as well).
What I find difficult in Polish shops is that, apart from some of the more modern ones, stuff is often not on display and you have to ask for it - which gets hard unless you know what it's called. ;)
The only similar chains here are MediaExpert and MediaMarkt but they really only cater for TVs, vacuum cleaners, etc, not what you're after at all.
Thanks. MediaMarkt might have the stuff? I think there's a MediaMarkt in Galeria.
