That's a great price for an MPU-401AT let alone an SCC-1.
I just took delivery of the SCC-1 & MT-32 with a CT3910 and Roland MCB-1 thrown in as a bonus, all for $150. The seller was a lovely bloke - not a believer in anti static bags but it all looks to be in good condition, and he delivered it personally! A good guy.
Thanks for posting the link dacow
Great to hear it went to a good home! ☺
when I get some time I would like to diagnose why my ol' school s478 won't consistently POST... what hardware part(s) should I inspect in trying to diagnose?
I can almost garauntee it isn't the PSU as it is relatively new & has had very little use (like, not even a weeks worth use)
If you're a 478 fan, this will be heaven: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/272198438137
Shane will be all over that
Caps would be my guess.
Try lowering the FSB und undervolting and see if the behaviour changes?
Also the usual diagnostics. Remove variables to try and isolate.
I'd go with RAM/video not making good contact.
On the topic of 478...

Photos are of an 848 chipset board from the looks of it since the memory appears to be only single channel, odd.
Edit: just looked online and it is an 865 (4pdai) just has two memory slots that are dual channel and it seems an ok overclocking board too.
Hey Guys when did P4 become retro?
If so I have a heap I'd be happy to part with
I think for me the upper limit for retro would be 370/A
don't stir the junk collectors corner up again!
I've taken delivery of that Roland stuff you linked to - thanks again!
I don't think there is a set definition :/ or I'm not aware of one anyway!
for me... mmm..
pre...say 386.... prehistoric (legacy?)
486 - P4/K8 retro
C2D/Q - old school
given the context, its not bagging one era out over the other - each started their hobby with PCs at a diff time & are thus nostalgic about platforms in different ways
s478 is where it started for me!
"NEW" Evergreen Spectra 400mhz K6-2 NIB $60 delivered Australia
Interestingly(or Ignorantly) it supports socket 5 motherboards, that would be quite the rocket for such a system.
Looks to be an awesome condition!
