    Call - good chance he doesn't know how to send a text without it taking him 30 mins per message

    Yeah you buggers with the luxury of a dedicated games room have it good in that respect. Aside from shed junk/storage, I've only got a 3m x 3m small office type room to house any and all operational machines + related ephemera + workspace. It's doubtful anything bigger than the bartop or the 21" TV will be entering here.

    Don't understand why he won't post these items. They are dead simple to pack. Could do with that LAN card and CDROM.

    Opti based ISA sound card with genuine OPL and AdMOS QS700 wavetable (1MB ROM, 32 voices) - approx AUD$65 delivered.

    Should be a very versatile card.

    Yeah, I ordered one of those a few weeks back ... not the cheapest postage, but at least ebay global postage is somewhat functional. Unlike some of the other things I've ordered from overseas :-(

    Would be great to hear your first impressions when the card arrives.

    Looks like the seller has quite a few more in stock so there might be an opportunity to combine postage if there more people interested in this.

    The sound card just arrived today! Along with an ISA S3 801 card I definitely spent too much money on!

    Have a decent hand built headphone amplifier I can use to really get a good feel for it's output quality. (it is good enough that it shows up cards like the SB Live and AWE64, which normally sound fairly respectable on normal desktop speakers)

    So I'll get a good feel for it's audio performance.

    haha, definitely NOT a bargain at that price (you normally get a 3200 or 3000, at least, on any 939 or 754 socket board you buy)
