Why buy one for $250 with a case, when you could pay $250 for one WITHOUT a case!
Do you even post on vse bro?

Man, I don't know what to make of this. $477.

Yamaha DX200

Not a BIN, it SOLD for that price. The auction started at an I-thought-already-high $175. I know these are rare in NZ but near enough half a grand rare? Yikes.

$175 would be a steal. These usually go for between $300-$400. The last one that sold on Ebay went for $499 + shipping

Hah, didn't know they were that valuable. I used to see them on German classifieds sites from time to time when I lived over there, usually in the 80~200 euro range. Sounds like I should have stocked up.

Partly for the units themselves, partly because people strip them for the voice cards, which work in older Motifs

Over the past week, I've watched this guy price this Rhythm Jester from $100 to $50 now up to $270 because on "ebay these bring between $300-$475." Of course, he's getting his prices from that one jackass w/ all the plants in the background that routinely has 3x prices.

Mostly for the ridiculous price, and really weird that this seller has 2 of them!
