Another review of Koba Electronics

Posted on Monday, August 13th, 2012 in kit biz by DP

Lategahn wrote a short review of the Koba Electronics store we visited on our Global Geek Tour of Singapore. Watch our video review of the Koba Electronics store.

This shop definitely dwarfs the big European component retailers, such as Conrad with its variety of goods in stock plus delivers the same at fair prices. Amongst the treasures to be found are NOS tubes for Audio and RF amplifiers, a selection of high quality japanese ALPS potentiometers such as the legendary “Blue Velvet”, Antennas for every thinkable transistor radio, high end grade audio capacitors, a vast variety of LCD and LED displays, switches, plugs, sockets, adapters, fuses and many many things that had to succumb in the bow to the mass market in most western countries.
