holy poop!



does it qualify as "custom" when every unit i've ever seen ships with them :facepalm:

plus: it's amazing people still line up for these. the pcm's are ok/pretty good, but the sequencing is nothing special. it's a $300 unit. tops. whatever....

Once you factor in shipping, it actually ends up being a pretty good deal :roll: :

their prices are always ridiculously high, but this one takes the cake. they usually go for around a grand.

It will be really funny to see how much this one ends up going for. TR-707s are almost that much.

it IS a very high price for a TR-55, but 707's go for that much all the time.

it reads as though he's saying TR-707's usually sell for less.
