Hopefully I'll contribute to this forum and someone else's happiness as I don't currently have $2100 to fork over......

All of them had good prices and ended instantly with a BIN.
At first I thought some of them were scams, but they don't have any of the usual signs.

This one's mos def not a scam as it's sitting on my desk right now. :lol:

Totally serviced, some great mods done to it. Have made some comments on the EML 100 page. Really enjoying it. :D

ok - so even though i thought the last two were interesting - maybe they weren't up to snuff.

this could stand to be a bargain to someone with a soldering iron:

seem reasonable too - hopefully not "travelling abroad and having the transaction handled by their shipping company"

On old things, power issues are a pretty simple fix and tend to not cause too much damage to the rest of the synth as opposed to later synths it seems. Still seems like a lot of money. If it was local I'd probably see if he took 2500-3k and then it'd be striaght to my tech. 2000 would probably be my first offer. Prices got crazy for awhile but seem to have settled back to the 5k mark. Making this not much of a deal.

I wonder what spent quite a bit of time on it means. Tech-wise sometimes it's better to just take it to someone that knows what they're doing rather than mess anything else up. Playing-wise would be encouraging.

agh - there's three on ebay right now in the 5-7k range. the last time I remembered seeing some it seemed like they were going for the more 7-10k range (which I think is what you were seeing too.) ugh - darn these price fluctuations. supply and demand on synth stuff is outrageously impossible to keep track of.

i'll try to keep my posts only to uber-rare or "giving it away". thanks guys :)

Post whatever you like. It's fun. If that was working that would be a great deal and there's an 80% chance I'd say that it's a less than $100 fix for someone who knows how to read the schematic and follow through or knows someone who can.
