Just received Empeg Mark 2, and am willing to sell mint condition 10GB Mark 1 to buyer with shipping address in continental USA.

This unit is Serial #354, has never been installed or used and will be delivered with all original packaging, unused car sled and all accessories including the alternative green display. I will cover shipping in continental USA, dependent upon purchase price, and will require payment prior to shipment.

I paid $1519.00 in November 1999--make the best offer by August 23 and this Empeg is yours. I'm located in Philadelphia, PA: contact me at [email protected]

What is WITH all these "never used, never installed, mint condition" mark 1's that keep cropping up? How could anyone possibly buy one and not USE it?!?!

It's called "Speculation", Tony - but I suspect I may be reading the worst into innocence. I almost guarantee I'll be flamed for saying that ...

However, it must tick a whole load of people off who couldn't get hold of a Mk 1 at the time they were offered; seeing it now must be immensely annoying. I still can't figure out how some people got two machines, since you were only allowed one device order per registration

Tony:

You may select from among the following contributing factors (I'm guessing you managed to overcome a few of these?):

1. a two-year old son with speedy legs and evil on his mind
2. a one-year old daughter with a voice more piercing than Geddy Lee on his best day
3. a wife who loves the Empeg, but would prefer to load it with Sesame Street, Barney and Teletubby songs for the aforementioned
4. a totally XXXXX-whipped husband
5. the husband's post-purchase decision to purchase a better mobile enclosure for the Empeg (selling Grand Cherokee in favor of 2001 Audi A6 4.2)

I know, I know--they're poor excuses. But can anyone out there relate?

Ah....sorry, but it indeed is a great deal more innocent than all that (see my response to Tony above).

Also, if speculation was the motive, a much better market for the Mark 1 existed before the Mark 2s began shipping in volume. By the way, I posted the unit's availability here, only, in an effort to ensure that an enthusiast gets a first shot at it.
