"And now, the end is near;
And so I face the final curtain."

Yes, it's time to get shut of my Amiga. I'm just too busy now to afford having it around as a distraction. It's a painful decision, but an essential one. Balancing work, study and family is hard enough without the attraction of burning hours on an old computer...

Anyway. The system is:

Amiga 1200, 3.1 roms fitted (3.0 roms supplied also)
MODDED with internal slim-line CD-ROM
MODDED with CF HDD interface to rear of unit, so you can swap hard drives without opening the case, very convenient, you can have multiple CF cards with various setups on them and switch between them by just shutting down, swapping drives and rebooting, a 5 second job!
2GB CF HDD with 3.1 installed. This has various bits and pieces of software installed. Most importantly it has MiamiDX configured and working! iBrowse is installed too, original boxed copy of this supplied.
1GB CF HDD with 3.1 installed. This has shapeshifter installed too so can turn your Amiga into a Mac! Never fully configured this though, ran out of time.
Blizzard Mark IV 50Mhz, with FPU and 128MB RAM.
64MB RAM stick
various other sticks of RAM too.
MIDI interface
Yamaha RX17 drum machine
Couple of samplers.
3 Genlocks.
Eizo Flexscan TFT monitor, syncs to Amiga refresh rate.
RGB to VGA adapter

There's more, I'll update a little later... Pictures to follow this evening.

450 the lot. 20 shipping within UK, or collection welcome. Will ship international, but will need to get individual quotes. It'll not be cheap...

Not interested in splitting just yet, but if I did the RX17 would be the first logical thing to split off.

It's very clean and seems to be fully operational. I say "seems to be" because I don't really know how to use it! I downloaded a manual for it but just haven't had the time to read and absorb it. All the instrument buttons seem to work, I've got it hooked to a little practice amp and it sounds fine. But as far as programming it or controlling it from the Amiga (which is what I planned to do) I just haven't got that far.

I bet it would help if you offer the picture with the Hulkster and British Bulldog as a Bonus :D.

Damn...I can't remind the name of the third guy...

IF you do decide later on to split the package Steve, I'd like to throw my hat in the ring for the A1200 and CF cards (no Blizzard or heavyweight ATX power supply needed - already own those).

Il certainly be interested in that monitor if you ever decide to split that up too. :)

Dusty Rhodes. The American Dream! There's a framed picture of Jake the snake Roberts behind the practice amp too. I really don't know what came over me when I bought those... Something incredibly cheesy about having framed photos of wrestlers I guess and that appealed to me!

Yeah, this isn't getting the interest it deserves as an epic of epics package. I'm going to let the ebay listing run it's course, got a bunch of watchers over there and a few messages, so only fair. If that doesn't pan out, and no-one here grabs it by then, then I think I will split it all down. Shame though, it's a huge pile of stuff, centred around a great and expanded computer, makes a nice collection! Watch this space...

Chris, the trackball is a pretty little thing, I agree! :-) Bit of a ******* to play Cannon Fodder on though I found!

Hi. If you do decide to split I'd like first dibs on the Blizzard 1230 Mk4 if poss.
Cheers.

EDIT: just seen you're selling it for 170. Too high a price for me m8. Oh wells... the search continues...
