    Yeah, it looks pretty good. I guess RAM is also maxed? Then it's a good deal. I'd still try to haggle a bit. :wink:

    Poland. I'm never using ebay, amazon etc. I'm scary of using it. I'm not in a hurry with it and I'm considering buying. I'm not shure yet if I needed it so I waiting for a local good deal.

    ebay and amazon are nothing to be scared of. there are a lot of people who say that, but you are reasonably well protected when you buy from them, particularly if you use paypal.
    for example, ebay will refund you if you do not receive your package.
    you might end up paying a lot for shipping though :(

    when dealing on the eBay platform + Paypal the buyer always has an advantage over the seller. I never sell on eBay but certainly, do make purchases every month.

    I have the Emulator II can't sell it for sentimental reasons. When I was in Russia always dreamt of owning one. I have been offered top dollars for it. I was able to purchase mine from a big-time record producer who wanted it out of his studio ASAP. It came with all the custom sample disks that he used to make 4 or 5 multi-platinum albums. He has offered trades for it, willing to overpay me but I wont let go of it. Sentimental value aside, I love its sound and can navigate in it blindfolded.

    Thats awesome. I searched for quite a long time for an Emulator II years ago but the right one never came up. I love the blue, almost child like styling, same as my SP-12.
