First off, I want to disclaim that I have nothing related to nor nothing vested in any interest in this person's enterprise, this is just a public service announcement of sorts.
I have been in contact with one "Xu Wang" via email, the person that has created and sold the "SimmConn" adapter for AWE64 gold and value sound cards, that allows us to use a normal 72-pin simm for expansion memory on these cards. More info can be had over here at: http://simmconn.tripod.com/
Now, the reason for this thread: I have been told by Xu that recently the Simmconn Gold for AWE64 Gold sound cards, is temporarily out of stock. He does have "several more" (I say that in quotes as that is his wording, I do not know exactly how many "several" refers to) that he produced but did not ever enter testing phase. He has told me that he will be soon going through and testing these, and if any are found good he will list them for sale on the website, and the ones not tested good he will repair what ever defect and then list those as well.
HOWEVER!! These extra few he is going to be testing now, will be it. Once those are listed and sold, he will not produce any more, ever again. So once they are bought, that's it. They'll be gone, forever in the world, and never seen again. And as far as I know, this is the only such adapter of it's kind to extend these sound cards.
He has already written back and says he will email me personally when he has some more that have completed testing and then connected to the website for sale. Therefore (after I buy one myself.. 😊) I will update this thread when and if he tells me more are listed on the website, so other vogons members can grab them if they wish.
