The project is 99% ready, we're still drafting the manual, and hope to launch sales as soon as possible.

..., and there was much rejoicing. (yaaayyaayayaaayaaay!)

Thank you for replying. I hope that you and everyone else are doing okay, what with everything going on. I live in the U.S. and I hope to be able to buy one, somehow. Though either way, I hope things remain good and safe for you.

My English is not the best, should there be any misunderstandings, please let me know!
Unfortunately, some don't seem to provide that.

START OF SALES

DISCLAIMERS:
1. PLEASE use the switches with extreme precaution. They tend to break off. Hold-down the DIP-switch with second finger or use a toothpick or tweezers to switch it. Always take the soundcard out of your PC when you want to change switch settings.
2. It is a manually assembled product using both new/NOS and used components as well as Chinese PCBs. Do not expect IDEAL looks.
3. Sold AS IS. No returns, no warranty. All cards have been tested and confirmed as fully working.
4. We will provide some basic support but please do not expect commercial service. Please send your questions via PM to H_Rush or e-mail them to vccollection@yandex.ru, and please announce yourself in this thread once you receive your package. We also strongly encourage the community to take part in mutual support and troubleshooting.

PRICES:
Boxed assembled tested card - USD 540 as PayPal as goods and services (or 500 USDT), shipping paid separately.
Bare PCB with bracket - USD 110 as PayPal as goods and services (or 100 USDT), shipping paid separately.
UPDATE 26.07.22: payment with USDT also possible, will result in lower prices!

SHIPPING:
The boxes are stored in Russia, Moscow. Unfortunately due to the ongoing conflict and imposed restrictions from both sides, direct shipping to several countries is not available.
So far out of several received inquiries only Australia is a total "no go". However, you can always ask some friend from an available country to act as a shipping forwarder for you.

TOTAL QUANTITY OF AVAILABLE BOXED CARDS AS OF NOW: 15

BONUS: One random package will include a free bare PCB from the first AWE64 Legacy prototype.

I really wanted one and kept money ready to purchase all that time, but... that rise to $540 hurts... I don't think I'm willing to spend that much, even tho I really want it... and no, bare pcb no good, I don't have the skills to build it myself, nor do I know anyone who can do it for me

We're really sorry that the price has increased to this level. Although the reasons are obvious, they don't make it easier. Global parts shortage due to pandemic + economic and export restrictions on Russia + global increasing inflation = inflated final price and reduced supply. With these prices and quantities we're almost at breakeven point with some slight additional profit allowing for a card per project team member and some bonus beers.

I understand. Will there be more production runs past the initial 15? I am on disability from an accident, and I don't have the funds at the moment, but I could save up for a future run.

That will depend on the success of the first batch, unsatisfied demand, availability of parts and the real situation with international shipping from Russia. We're optimistic on that but can't promise anything.

Completely understandable. I will try to see what I can do for raising funds for this batch, though I have a feeling that they will sell out. I hope that everything works out for everyone. No matter what happens, thank you for creating these cards.

Got one.

Looks nice and clean, I like switch descriptions on the back. But yeah, got to be careful with those switches. Perhaps just use bottom ISA slot, if available, and may be avoid having anything below it.
