Thread: Unbelievably Valuable ASR33

  1. #1

    Default Unbelievably Valuable ASR33

    An ASR33 has just sold for £4300 on eBay UK. Who’d ever have believed it?

    Scary price. Only four bidders though and the last two drove it up £3000. I'd love to give one of these a home one day when I'm organised enough to have room, but if they're going to be that price, maybe I've missed my chance

    That's an awfully high price. Perhaps it's just due to location? That's several times what they're worth in the USA, even fixed up.

    Wow!

    4300 pound is approx 5300 Dollar. You can ship a lot from the US for that money...

    The seller landed on his feet, looks like a house clearance company.

    Maybe it was to get the rare dust cover. It isn't even a modem model, just a plain 33.
    A similar one sold in the US for less then 1/10th that price.

    I got mine for $400. Unfortunately it is missing it's base with the power supply for the tape reader. Works fairly good otherwise though!

    When I got mine, the base was in a separate box. I didn't know at the time that the supply for the reader was in the base. I didn't have space for the base so I left it boxed up. I got the schematic for the supply and made one on a breadboard. It isn't as pretty as the real one but should work fine. Since I now have a real supply, you're welcome to the breadboard one if you pay postage. Let me know in a PM.

    Wow!
    I got mine (with a teperint marked dustcover) for the price of 2 bottles of wine.
    Okay, that was several years ago, but still....
