  1. Just a note….

    These full systems are a really limited time item. Only doing about 30 of them.

    You can always build one up yourself from individual modules, of course.

    1. Hmmm I tried this and there were a couple of modules that my local retailer didn’t think were available outside the system…. VCF1 and DSP if I recall correctly.
