I'm looking for a motherboard for my Spectrum 128K +2 (Grey). I'm based in Spain. Thanks!!

@jez

What type of +2 ?

are you looking for the 128k +2 that came in the (grey) chassis or the +2A/B that came in the black chassis.

The reason I ask is that they are substantially different.

The former 128k +2 (Grey) has only 32K ROM and a ULA, the latter has a 64K ROM and a hybrid ASIC.

Memory contention model is also different between the two. because of this - without a lot of fussing about the latter wont load early games like JetPac as the ROM is different

What is wrong with your current board? Maybe someone here can help with that?
