Hello, (please excuse my english)
I always wanted to build cool retro station with classic look, but i never had time or resources to do it. I moved to Shenzhen/China from Toronto (I got tired of the PC culture - politically correct society) I am not Chinese and i dont speak Chinese.
Shenzhen is mecca of the world electronic production. It is really cool to be here and see it. But i also realize, that china can have some retro HW from 80'- early 90'. And i found the gold 😀
There are many old computer parts or complete rigs for very reasonable price. Only what is missing is more specific HW - MIDI or very specific Audio HW. (Adlib, GUS etc.)
So i begin to buy my parts, but i want something special. In a Mac community people are getting old Macintosh cases or G4 or G5 Mac Pro cases and modding it. But PC doesn't have much iconic look that represent the PC line - BUT there is only one memorable design and that is old IBM cases, which i think they are still beautiful even today.
I did search and i found some old computer house/storage that have many of these machines
AMD K6-II 500, Nvidia TNT2 AGP, 256 MB RAM
Roland SCC-1, Gravis Ultrasound Classic, Turtle Beach Tropez, Roland MT-32
