Derbys.
Now then,
This is an Amstrad CPC 464 with the cassette "GROUND ZERO" in the drive, and a funny apparatus that seems to supply power and also modulate the video signal to RF (I've never seen this kind of thing before)

The asking price is £12 o. n. o., and the P&P to the UK is £7.20. PM me for overseas costs or more information.

Originally the CPC's had monitors supply the power but many buyers wanted to run it on their existing screens. So Amstrad designed that modulator thing so people wouldn't need to endure the cost of a crappy green screen monitor. :)

@Uberfreak & halx

In line with Amibay rules I have expressed interest in post 3 above, pending my final decision to go ahead dependant on pictures of the unit.

@wilsonsamm
Any update my friend, I have also expressed interest in your ZX Spectrum Thread
https://www.amibay.com/showthread.php?t=8440
And would like to combine the P&P

Amstrad arrived yesterday.

Fair condition, however the Tape deck is in serious need of attention & the Modulator has connection faults, open circuit core cables.
Will need to replace the cable & 6-Pin DIN & while I'm at it carry out a composhite modification..

Yet another repair / restoration project...

Will leave feedback later
