Korg M3R for $200
http://montreal.kijiji.ca/c-acheter-et- ... Z479054691

Here's the story: this seller placed multiple ads in the past few months to sell some stuff that nobody wants in the area. Mostly, this M3R, an AKAI S3000XL and a TASCAM DA30 MK II. It went as low as $40 each unit, or $100 for the 3, but still they didn't sell. Now, he puts back the ads periodicaly, but with different prices! Sometimes it's $100, $150 each, and it's now back to the biggest price ever! I really don't understand why someone would try to sell something at a higher price than when it didn't sell the previous time?!?
Considering parting away from:
-Roland TR707
-DSI Mopho

lol. i didn;t know you could jack up the price of a synth because you programed a 'custom preset' on it. this means all our gear has appreciated… we'll all be rich!

Go crazy with this one!

I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

Hmm, FWIW, it's not uncommon to see Dim-D's go for $700, so it's not tooooo crazy.

That said, John McIntire just sold one for $500, and I nabbed one for less than that lately,
so maybe prices are dropping and just ignore everything I just said ;) ...
