Ok, here's the deal: My MSX stuff has been under my desk in a box for more then 12 years or so. I can safely say I will not be using it anymore. I did check if everything starts, and it did. But I did not check if everything is working. I know the keyboards of the Sony g900AP and the yellow Philips are not in good working order anymore. The monitor is working (I used it some time ago to connect an old Vtech gamecomputer to it). It is for free, so I hope someone will be happy with it.

It comes in a big white box, and in that box you will find:

A Philips VG8235, double sided drive, memory expanded to 256 KB, MSX2+ conversion. Ugly paint job, btw... Dutch/VS keyboard layout
A Philips VG8235, in original state. Dutch/VS keyboard layout
A Sony HB-G900AP, with 1024 KB of RAM, 1 DSDD drive, in original state. I even got some manuals that came with it. Dutch/VS keyboard layout
A Philips CM8533 monitor, color, with Scart, cinch and din connectors. I'll throw in a scart cable.
Two Philips SBC3810 mice
A Suzo Turbo Arcade Joystick, two independant buttons
A Armstrad joypad.
A Philips NMS1205 music module (with 256 KB Ram expansion)
A Philips NMS1160 music keyboard (no music stand)
A Sony trackball (with three buttons)
A Sunrise Moonsound (including manual). Don't know anymore how much memory it has.
A Checkmark Stereo FM-PAK (but the cartridge case is broken)
A MSX-DOS 2.20 cartridge
Some books (z80 programming, in dutch), the V9938 and V9958 technical data books, VG-8235 service manual, VY0010/0011 service manual

No software. At all.

It needs to go at once. If you are somewhere around Rotterdam, I could drop it off. If you want to pick up, please let me know.

I will not send it by mail: To heavy: postage would probably cost more then what the stuff is worth...

So... I'm definitively interested! Hamlet, I could drop you some parts for your association on my way back home (would be a good occasion to see your place too!)? I already have several VG-8235 and other things that would be in double...

Are these the machines all your magic was made on, John? Dutch demoscene history! Oh man, aren't you afraid, in 10 years time, you are going to regret this?

@Latok: Yes, those are these machines. And you know? I am going to regret it. It's already hard right now. But, it's been in storage for at least 12 years (that's when I last moved) and it wasn't really used a lot before that either. The last time it was setup completely was 18 years ago (before reallife (tm) kicked in ;-), and since then it's been collecting dust. And although it might not all be in good working order, I hope people will be happy with it.

I don't need the money, but it's a shame to put it all in the dumpster. That's why I am giving it away. On the other hand: I don't want to much hassle, that's why it's going out in one package.

@Louthrax: You are welcome to it. I've got one other person who might be interested (via mail). The first one to collect the complete package can have it.

How is Germany on the way home (in France) from Rotterdam, btw?

I'm in North-East part of France (and now used to trips to Nijmegen Smile), and Hamlet is not far away from my home, that would only be a little deviation on the left!

If someone doesn't need that G900AP, I will be very interested... My brother lives in Berkel en Rodenrijs....
