Can't believe I opened my big mouth too soon....
Someone has read my post here (or on MPC forum) and they've gone and bought the LAST Analog board available from Syntaur...
Of course it could be just coincidence, but I can't believe it.
I spent most of last week trying to ask them if I should also order the analog jack board and ship it to AUS with the Analog board, but I spent so long awaiting an answer it was sold from under my feet.
They said they may get another one, but it depends who's breaking their ASR up for parts. I know of ONE other that's almost triple the price, but not going to reveal my source this time
From feedback from others it's looking more like the analog board is the culprit in my case.
**On another note, it struck me from doing a LOT of reading about my beloved ASR that I have the OEX-6 output expander that I no longer require. Apparently these guys are pretty rare these days so I could fetch a good price. Any swap boards / forums that you can list this sort of stuff on, or is it just Ebay??
