check the akai vx- line. I think I saw a 6-part VCO-based synth just go for like $100 last week? I didn't watch it till the end so it might have shot up, not sure..

how much are you selling it for?
How much do you want to pay?

I was thinking it's worth around $400. Is that fair?
they are worth about $200 in excellent condition, 16-part Emu 1U modules are selling for a bargain right now.

$200? No worries - not worth the effort to let it go then.

Still very useful, espescially for live shows.
