A3000 prices.

Post by Brad » Wed Mar 11, 2009 3:14 pm

Has anyone got any idea how much a fully expanded Yamaha A3000 is worth thease days? Its a V2 with internal hard drive, optional output card and SCSI card. Its also maxed out on the memory with all the card slots full to capacity!

Thoughts appreciated!

Brad.

Not sure, but it shouldn't be too much. I have one, but don't use it very often, due to the noise from the fan. With an internal harddrive, you should expect quite a bit of noise from that too. If I were to buy one now, it would be the A4000. The thing is I know the fan in the A4000 can be unplugged (unless there's a hdd in there!), but I haven't got confirmation yet if this is the case with the A3000. The SCSI is standard btw.

from a recent bout of sampler shopping, i would think between $200 and $350.

I got one on Ebay for $150 about a year and a half ago. That seemed to be average at the time, don't know if they've gone up since then; the current financial cataclysm ought to bring prices down a bit at any rate.
