Best I can offer on this one is to get Friendly with your local station engineers. You will then be in a position to find out when they are liquidating equipment cheap.
You will have to pay out lot’s of $$$ up front because they ussually sell things in lots. then you pick through what you want to keep and ebay the rest to make your investment back. save those recouped from $$$ from ebay sales for the next time your favorite engineer has another pile of goodies to liqudate. they sometimes just dumpster a lot of goodies also.
I pick up used XLR connectors off the floor and recycle them. nothing goes unused when running on a budget.
