Well, finances permitting, I'd be interested in that Amiga 2000

It already has a new home - sorry  :(

Damn! I want to get another A2000 to replace the old one of mine that died

I can keep you one of the system boards. I cant test if it works or not.

I had a very nice find this week .. boxed 16K Spectrum for a fiver in a charity shop :)

Inside the box I found a really nice Sinclair User booklet entitled "Top 50 Spectrum Software Classics" - this made fascinating reading.

It also came with a weird black wedge-shaped device that presumably helps with loading tapes (?) and a nice bunch of games, but as I don't collect Spectrum tapes I will be getting rid of these particular items - if anyone's interested in these do LMK.

Cheers
Jon

Do you think its a interface 1 or 2?

My mate who's kid attended the pub quiz now has a ZX Spectrum 128K and would give the games a good home :)   I gave him the Spectrum last week along with the few tapes I still had.

Finally got those mbx carts(complete in boxes + overlays) from America but I had to pick-it up fromthe royal mail delivery place + I had to pay a £13.90 customs charge so I can get off their hands >:(
Them charges I didn't know I had to pay when going through fleabay(USA) so I won't be doing that again so quickly unless if it under £18.

It's not one of those (I am familiar with them). Here are a couple of pics:

I'm guessing this is intended to be plugged into a tape unit - maybe some kind of signal booster? Any help with this much appreciated - would love to know what it is! (and if anyone is interested in it do LMK as I have no use for it).

Cheers
Jon

Also took a photo of this, anyone seen this before? I think it's very cool. It has a colour screenshot and a short paragraph on each game.

By looking at it, it could be 2 things either it is a tape to tape copier or a spectrum sound amplifier.

can you open it up and show us the insides?

Looks intriguing. What is the extra plug like? another 3.5mm?

I'll open it up as soon as I get the chance. The extra plug is similar to the connector on the Sinclair power supply.
