Cleaning out the closet, I found 1 RIO CAR, still in the box with the manuals and power supply, I think never used.
Also found a empeg which I installed years ago and have since removed from my car. This one has a metal plate a riveted to the housing and obvious signs of use.

I assume they still work, but I didn't try and power them up.

I honestly have no idea what value these things have anymore, I can get pictures if anyone is interested. Otherwise I don't know what to do with them and will probably throw them out.

Located in Upstate NY, USA.

Sorry guys, I thought I told the BBS to email me, I guess not. Didn't realize anyone had responded.

I'll get pictures and see if the units power up and get you guys what model and all that they are.

I'll let someone else tell me what they're worth.

unit 1 I believe is one of the mark 2 empeg branded units, not riocar labeled. I'm pretty sure I replaced the hard drive in it. connecting to it via empload 2.10 gives me an error 41002 sometimes, and I hear a couple telltale clicks that leads me to believe the disk is going bad, or maybe just hasn't been used in so long it isn't spinning up super great. as of right this second, it's working fine, though I had to reboot it a couple times for that to happen.
This unit has a blue/green screen.

Unit 2 is a rio branded unit, so I guess a mk 2a. I thought it was NIB but when I powered it on it has songs on it, so I guess I did use it, but it looks pretty good to me. blue tinted screen. This one turns on, plays music and appears to work 100% normally.
