    It's Chineseum unfortunately, so only worth a few hundred.

    That Roland RA-50 turned up today, turns on ok and controls seem in good nick.

    Can't test sound until I get home.

    Got home ... it sounds great, using SoftMPU with /RA50 switch.

    This unit is in fantastic condition, shiny plastic strip is virtually unscratched and in new condition, buttons are all working, and potentiometers are not scratchy and very smooth. Amazing condition for near on 30 year old synthesizer

    Love my SC55.. a lot!! then again, i dont have a MT-32 to compare against. Even the emulated MT-32 mode seems pretty snazzy to me, though that said, i am probably half tone deaf from my early days driving Metro 23's... :(

    Try MT32-PI some time or another if you don't want to shell out for an MT-32. I am sure you will love it too, if you are into any games that support MT-32.

    I picked up this USA Mortal Kombat 2 cabinet off a collector over here in AUS last week.

    It’s completely original except for the wrong colour sticks and bar across the front doors.

    It’s getting its PSU and chassis rebuilt at the moment and then it should be good to go for hopefully years to come!

    Yep, your right, I guess that means I've never played on an original MK cab. I just had a look online and your spot on. I'd like to have a ho at that, the button layout seems to make sense, just looking at it...

    Thx for the inside pic,I love those... :) lots of history right there, like walking into a tomb inside a long sealed up pyramid.

    CMS upgrade arrived for my SB2.0 CT1350B.

    I haven't even tested the card itself since getting it! I do have this naked Socket 7 system on the bench, which I think I trust enough now to plug something precious into it. Might have to slow the system down for this card though.

    Nice! I quite like the CMS sound, reminds of me a C64's SID. Very "computer game".

    Yeah, I'm a fan. And of course it brings stereo which the SB2.0's FM doesn't have.



    For that reason, if things can be configured successfully, it might go great in the 386 on pure CMS duty. Including the incoming MPU, that would make it a four sound card system :leet:

    It was the last game I needed for my black label GTA collection so I got trigger happy on ebay. This version is standalone rather than a mission pack so it doesn't require the original game to boot. It has a much more interesting cover than the standard mission pack version. It was a premium at about $85 but this included a well packed journey from the UK. It is in great condition and is complete including the map :)

    I picked up the sweet GTA3 cover version for $10 a little while ago which made me want to fill out the collection and replace a platinum release I had.
    The complete collection:
