25 minutes to go, and still only $150. I reckon to watch this auction. Almost noone outside SI forums will have spotted this one, though, as it was essentially mis-listed (well, underdescribed).

It finished at 122 pounds which is about $200, not bad at all.

And if only you'd posted it here 2 hours earlier I might have been able to buy it - they seem to be going for about 40 - 50UKP more than this. :angry2:

Seriously, how did you spot this? Do you spend hours trawling through ebay for mis-listings, or do you have a secret method? I have a search set up for "RH1", but obviously that's why I missed this one.

Seriously though, there's no secret... I just happened to notice it.

No problem - Yesterday I bought this one instead, so as long as it's working OK, I'm now future-proofed for a few years! I thought that 170 UKP for a 6-month old machine wasn't too bad, when Sony Centre wanted 250UKP and Amazon's price had shot up to 260UKP; however I received notification this morning that their price has just plummeted to 190UKP. :angry2: Ah well.

There seems to be a lot of useful MD equipment for sale in the UK.

I wish we could collectively find Axel (Habakuk Tibatong) in Chicago a way to get himself the MZ-R2 that finishes tomorrow evening. I've been stocking up thanks to the good graces of my dad, but I think it's too much to volunteer him in that capacity.

I just did some overhaul on my MZ-RH1 as I dared to fix it (now I have a working spare in hand), from the seemingly inevitable jog-lever problems that it developed. Not a recommended procedure unless you are desperate, those darned things are very flimsy at best.

I don't need to tell you what these are :)

All underpriced, my guess is suitable as backup unit. The RH1 is known for having "issues" with the buttons, it will be the luck of the draw whether the vendor(s) wore them out before putting on sale.

UK only, but you never know......

I saw that a couple of weeks ago, crazy! I think it works out to about three bucks a disc before shipping. Did you see his note that it weighs some outrageous amount, like 200 pounds or something? The only person to buy something like this would have to own a store and could sell them off. I don't really see your average MD collector shelling out nearly four grand for a huge pile of discs like that.

People often come on here looking for the battery cases.

Here's a listing that many will be very pleased to see. It's for the add-on AA battery case used by most units (the exception being RH10/910 which has a special one of a slightly different size):
