Help Neve heads...! What is this?

Can anyone tell me whether this is good?

Would it be hard to get a power supply for that thing...?

Does the 87000/2 VR console have a good pedigree...?? I never heard of it...

I'm the opposite of a Neve expert but that is the input section, filters, and compressor/gate from a VR series.

It's actually spelled out in the item description.

This looks like the input section of a VR or VRL console- mic pre is nothing special but OK - the gates are decent and the comps can sound pretty nice on rock guitars etc- functional rather than exciting. - Looks like it is actually pulled from a channel though rather than a V-Rack so it would be odd getting it powered up on it's own... but possible I'm sure. Problem with all VR stuff is if a switch breaks they are irreplaceable.
Hope that helps a little.
