Hi imbackagain2, you're kinda in the area. I came across this Mississauga business. They have a listing of used equipment on their website and they can get you new stuff if you want. They look like they could be very useful in helping setting up a decent studio. I keep checking their used listing but I'll most likely drop by to check out their store.
Edit: I'm actually thinking about taking their Recording 101 class. 8 sessions for $120, that's not bad at all. I took recording classes before but it'd be good to get a refresher and tips with the newer technology that's out there today. It starts next Wednesday (April 12th, 2006).
