    I could. For $40 each. Not even kidding.

    Instead I bought them from China for $1 each.

    Australian retailers are having a laugh.

    Holy shit!

    The HOT for my 1084S wasn't that much! And I got two just in case!

    I understand your dilemma. ;)

    Going to actually post some music instead of ranting about my amp. An old favourite OST of mine:



    And an OST I only discovered the other day, and haven't yet played the game for, but really want to:

    Hirokazu "Chip" Tanaka, famous for the audio in Nintendo games like Metroid, Donkey Kong, Kid Ikarus, Mother/Earthbound and others, and also for songs on the Pokemon TV show, has released his first full studio album, titled "Django".

    https://chiptanaka.bandcamp.com/releases

    Listen to it for free there (it's also on Spotify), and you can buy the album off Bandcamp as well (the best way to support musicians in the modern era).

    not retro - but retro inspired, I think we will all be putting Octopath Traveller's soundtrack in the same league as many of these games.

    Some of the tracks are just gorgeous and battle music that gets you in the mood.

    The greatest track from Medal of Honor Allied Assualt and a great level too, this is the one where you steal the STG-44.

    "Ghost in the Shell" on PlayStation 1 had a thumping techno soundtrack, which really amped up the gameplay. I wish more games had tried this over the years.

    Really love that game and soundtrack, and the sequel. Put a lot of hours into both, and the music was always great.

    pretty sure TG came out after it, but did anyone else love playing with the "CD player" in Lotus Esprit Turbo III to be specific some of the greatest Amiga music lived here and that's saying something as the Amiga was a musical powerhouse.

    To put it into context when I was playing this most people I knew had 8bits or pc speaker

    I still remember that startup track too. What a game.

    For me on the Amiga I loved the soundtrack to Super Cars II all starting with that booming Magnetic Fields intro.

    mmm more Amiga lovin' I never had Super Cars. How good was Shadow of The Beast as a total package musically.

    Right from the reflections intro, that killer level one track and even the bittersweet death screen. All in 1989, shit yeah.
