    I managed to put through an order with them on the new site yesterday morning, I got a confirmation email in my inbox. Not sure if its going to come through or get cancelled with the new lockdown restrictions taking place, we'll see.

    No reply from Mark here either but with the lockdown returning I say thats to be expected.

    It's been quite a few years since I've brought from him but I never had any troubles doing it over email back then. Things are obviously more complicated now.

    Sounds like an unconventional way of doing business, but any port in a storm as we all know in this retro-seeking environment.

    Doesn't appear to be any of the things he says but would probably make a decent cab to stick whatever you wanted into.

    I believe this cute little thing is a super socket 7? New listing but only 5hrs left on it. Missing drive brackets might be an issue.

    [edit] And while I don't expect this next one to remain a bargain, it's always interesting to see one listed. Roland SC-7, the cut-down beige version of the SC-55. In fab condition with $99 starting bid:

    Yeah it's a neat looking rig.

    I imagine pressing the 3D button on that drive bay speaker is like

    Yeah thats the one I mentioned some pages back. I believe shredder said he was too far away unfortunately.

    I saw a list posted on facebook just the other day and it was an insane amount of gear more than what the original photo showed. I doubt the prices would of been anything like Computer Reset over in the US which is a genuine firesale but still would be a fantastic experience.
