Can we ban you from just price conversations? ;)

Its not a matter of what we think its worth, its a matter of what uts worth in reference to the market. Its not worth the space it eats to me. But thats just me. Contrarily, im going to grab my 3rd poly 800 tonight and havent spent more than $150 on any of them. Im going to atomahawk mod them all and give a big fungola to expensive dco polysynths.

What's more ridiculous is the total lack of info about the "custom expansion" and how it was rackmounted...

Available for sale:
-Chamber of Sounds Jupiter III (mk1) & Jupiter T (mk1)
-The Complete DX7- Howard Massey (with original enclosed sounds on soft disks)
