Dragon 32
« on: May 03, 2013, 08:19:03 PM »
I'm currently on the look-out for a Dragon 32 computer (hopefully including tape recorder and a few games). Having looked at them on ebay, it seems they're priced a little higher than I anticipated. If anyone has any idea of where I might be able to get hold of one then I'd appreciate it.

Thanks
Current set-up: Amstrad CPC 464, Sega Master System, Amiga 500+, Playstation 1, PSP, Wii

Id also be interested to know what something like this goes for realistically. I picked up a Dragon 64 with a bunch of games for it and the 32. Got some cartridge games for it too. Not had a proper chance to look through it all yet mind.

Not so long ago a plain 32 would set you back £10 - but prices seem to be climbing over the past few years.

Picked up a Dragon 64 last week for 12 quid, no PSU and is apparently faulty but Dragons are unheard of down here let alone a 64!!

Crazy-arse PSU these things had tho, will have to bypass the regulator board and inject sane voltages into the PCB direct.

That's deffo doable, from memory the 64 board needs +12, +5 and -12, so should be doable from somthing like a small ATX supply.

Cheers.
