I thought the second DMX owner in Greece wanted to pick up the selling craze on the roll... :lol: Still, relisting more than twice the price it didn't sell in the first place is never a good idea. Wonder why the first buyer didn't follow through...

Good for you! I was looking for one in my city, but I just couldn't justify the price it was advertised for so I let it pass... Some other day. :|
Available for sale:
-Chamber of Sounds Jupiter III (mk1) & Jupiter T (mk1)
-The Complete DX7- Howard Massey (with original enclosed sounds on soft disks)

what's ridiculous is how they keep relisting it with just 24 hours, AND that the dumbass doesn't just split the three up. would most likely easily make more selling them individually.
