For those Canadians here, it would appear The Bay sold computers! Apparently this was assembled by a local company, and then sold at The Bay.

Not that I have any kind of special/nostalgia attachment to The Bay, but if I found that on a PC case I would probably leave it as-is haha. Nice find!

Yeah, I had no idea these existed. Pretty cool.

Not as big as my previous acquisition, but sound nice nonetheless. At first, I was underwhelmed by its soundstage depth, which despite being quite good pe se, is not as spectacular as described on various reviews. Hence, my review. I eventually experienced one of those "wow" moments though, so I guess these little guys were keepers? What would you think?

The B&Ws are noticeably smaller than the JBLs.

Never thought this thread would be that long, but now, for something different.....

Ok, so admittedly I TOTALLY Artex'd this one.. But, a near-mint Boxed Ensoniq SoundScape Elite. I traded my second boxed version away a while back for a my boxed Ad Lib Music System so now I'm back up to two of these boxed beauties! This one just needs a little minor dusting but everything else is pristine. The original owner really took care of this thing and took extra care when packaging this for the long journey from Japan. 😎 😎 😎 😎

Awesome 😎 !! Wish I could find one of these too - Congratulations!!

With a name like that, it should really have been an ATi product.

This is, what I called proper heat sinks, not that X299 "RGB-lid-block-of-aluminium" joke...

Good advice! Best to not tempt Murphy's law. I generally try to make my repairs look...well, invisible. But my German OCD is the reason for this. A functional repair is certainly more valuable than a failed attempt at a pretty one.

Care must also be taken not to lift that pad. Lots of flux and swift use of a fine curved tip of a QUALITY soldering iron are paramount.

Personally, if you're serious about fixing it I suggest having someone experienced with this type of work take a crack at it.

Note for the faint of heart for sure.

Thanks both for your advice. Seems I lost that game 😵

So I already used some parts of this card to replace the missing parts on the backside of the other card. This one works now, but only 8 (of 12?) MB RAM detected. I think the reason are some deep scratches. The ones on the backside seem only to affect the SLI connector however. Dont think I will try to fix it...

Wil never understand people who spend lots of money for such hardware and then throw it away. Havent watched the prices all the time, but I assume should get 50€ minimum for a V2 even 10 years ago...

Around 6 boxes of 80's software/hardware from a hoarders estate. Probably a lot more to come...

Oh, and those are 8" floppies. 😀

Sweet. Congrats. The question is. Was it on DBA or GulOgGratis?
Been on them nearly each day for the last 2 years, and that never popped up on there.

Don't eat stuff off a 15 year old never cleaned cpu cooler.

You were... 425 is a really low price. I guess it went fast, like within the hour or something.
A shame there is not that much vintage hardware on DBA at all.

Yes. I got it 39 minutes after it was posted. It is only the second one I have seen on there (the last one was in June). The is not a lot of retro stuff available locally, most of the stuff available is from you actually 😀

But I did manage to get a Sound Blaster AWE64 Gold for ~$6.32 (DKK 40) a few weeks ago. I have not had time to test it yet, but it looks just fine.

Please, Could you take images of that installation disks?? There are lot of PC Tools 8.0 (11/92) copies floating around but, so far, I've never seen a copy of the MS-DOS 6.0 compatible upgrade: PC Tools 8.0a

TIA

Try the above. I used WinImage. There was an error on Disk 2, but it seems to have worked.

True... When I have something to spare, I put it up for sale. Saving the money for something else. 😀
39 minutes you say? Hmmm... That was fast. Though I would love to have those sounds, I do not feel
that I have the space for multiple Roland devices. And finally, I am more into what I personally
was using back from the mid-80's to somewere around 2001/02 when I retired all my old hardware.
I began collecting old parts again in 2013, and I must admit, that it is really hard these days.

Is it a GeForce 2 Ti? This review shows it with different RAM chips: ixbtlabs.com/articles/asusti/index.html

On top of the card it says ''Asus V7700Ti''

V7700 is the Geforce2 GTS, V7700Ultra is the Geforce2 ultra so yes, this is the Ti version. Looking for the Ultra myself, it is pretty hard to find.
