Hi IvMan, have decided to order direct later - shipping JHB to Cape Town will probably negate any gains. Thanks for the initiative!

Can he not add a "niceness" knob on the front panel. You can then turn it clockwise as much as necessary to add "nice spice" to the sound. This is dictated by your mood on the day. On a Monday you would add more nice than on a Friday say.

Thanks for the interest guys.

I can get them in at a landed cost of R3550 a piece.
This will be for the fully loaded unit.

I think to keep things simple, I will not deviate from the fully loaded spec, and only 15 units are available.
I need payment made by Thursday evening (pm me for details) or you will be bumped from the list as I will place the order and make payment on Friday morning.
All units will be shipped to me in Johannesburg, so if you need them forwarded on please bear in mind the additional postage fees in SA to get the unit to you.

Please quote this message and add your name to the end so we can build a list of orders.
The first 15 names on the list and who make payment on time will be the 15 to get units. Hope this works for everyone. I just need to keep this tight and simple.

IVMAN - 1 Unit

And one for me please

Just remembered..
I trust that everyone is of the understanding that I am merely facilitating the purchase process, and will not be liable in any way whatsoever that the product works / doesn't etc...
Thought I should put it out there!
