    The classic didn't get good reviews but the I run the pro as my mouse at work and I think I'm going to get another one for home.

    The mx518 was also remade recently too

    I'm out of the ISA sound card testing business these days but my theory is that the socket on these cards:

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/314006697330

    Accept a Crystal CS9236 midi chip, as seen (and heard) here:



    Would be a pretty cool little card if that's the case.

    I bought two of these, they turned up today.

    Drive 1 reports 2000 days powered on and 330gb written.
    Drive 2 reports 80 days powered on and 1tb written.

    Both should still have plenty of life left, although nearly 6 years powered on is keen. :Paranoid:

    $15pp for three untested PCI cards: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/334393930728

    Two uninteresting Ensoniq cards, but the third looks to be a ESS Solo-1 card from the terrible photo (looks like it has a SB-Link header). It also could be a ESS Allegro or similar, which would be much less useful...

    there isnt a epox board with original caps around today that isnt due a re-cap :lol::lol:
    bloody fond memory of the ol 8rda+, cooking the bios with ram overclocks and having to hotflash the board was awesome "fun"
    nerve racking the first few times, but then it was like a walk in the park. Never should of sold that board ....
