FS - UPDATED - Clock is ticking: Fully loaded A3000, a bare bones A3000 and misc Amiga bits
For those of you that may remember, my name is Errol and I used to run the Amiga company called E.M.Computergraphic who were (among othe things) responsible for developing and compiling the EMC Phase 1, 2, 3, and 4 series of multi-award winning Amiga DTP/DTV CDs. E.M.Computergraphic were also the CD-ROM compilers for the Amiga Format CD Coverdiscs and the UK and European distributors for Computer Safari typefaces and Opalvision software.
Anyway, I closed down E.M.Computergraphic in November 2000 and the 2 x A3000 Amigas were basically powered down and packed up. I have no use for the Amigas now and am thinking of offering them up for sale, in the hope that they will find a good home. I have all sorts of bits and bobs up for grabs, details as follows:
** Amiga 3000 - Number 1 ------------------------------------------------------------
Amiga 3000 Desktop
2mb chip and 16mb fast
Kickstart 40.68, Workbench 40.42
HD Floppy drive
Quantum Fireball 2100 mb ultra fast SCSI HD
Progressive Peripherals Mercury 040/28mhz accelerator with manual
(Running the 3000 at 21.12 mips compared to the 4.37 mips of a standard 3000/030)
Phase 5 Cybervision 64 CyberGFX graphics card
Commodore A2058 Zorro II 8mb Ram expansion card
Alfa Data Oktagon 2008 SCSI II controller
Alfa Data 3 button mouse
External Roctec floppy drive
The offical A3000 user manual and all 6 Workbench 3.1 install discs
Custom External "SCSI Box" (to house external SCSi devices)
Plextor Plex PX-20TSi 12/20 Speed CAV CD-ROM Drive
Yamaha CDR102 4x read and 2x write CD burner
Sony DDS-2 SCSI DAT Tape Drive
Seagate ST11200N 1.2 Gb Hard drive
Seagate ST51080N 1.2 Gb hard drive
Siamese 2 RTG PC to Amiga Networking System
I have had a look at the Siamese manual and it seems as though all the cables and cards are present but it *may* have some bits missing.
Just about everything that was worth having at the time is installed on the machine. It's almost impossible to list everything but highlights include:
Pagestream 2, 2.22 & 3, Professional Page 4.1, Professional Draw, Cloanto Pesonal Paint 7.1, Deluxe Paint 4.1 & 5, Typesmith, Superbase Professional 4, Photogenics 2.0, ImageFX2, Main Actor, Directory Opus 4 & 5, Diskmaster2, MasterISO, Quarterback, Ami-back, Powerpacker Pro, MakeCD, Art Department Professional 2.50 with all the additional modules, Pro Control, Turbo Text, Final Write, Scala & Scala MM400, AudioMaster 4, MagicWB, AsimCDFS and obviously... a shed loads of fonts!!!
** Amiga 3000 - Number 2 ------------------------------------------------------------
Haven't got the time to check this 3000 out properly but it powers up and it goes through the cycles of accessing and booting from a floppy disk but, for some reason there is no video output from the 15Khz video port and it has no hard drive.
Rev 7 Motherboard (clean and free from leakage)
2mb chip and 4mb fast
Fitted with A3000 ROM tower with 2.04 chips
Hypercom 3 Plus I/O card with 1 parallel port and 2 high speed serial ports (DB9 & DB25)
Original A3000 keyboard and mouse
Given a bit of know how and a hard drive I'm sure that it could be given a new lease of life but, I guess it would be better for this 3000 to be considered as a source for spare parts.
** A box with several Amiga chips -------------------------------------------------------
I'm not sure if they work or not but having said that I can't really see why I would have kept them if they didn't. The chips are:
2 x WDC SCSI controller chips
1 x 315093-02 chip, which I believe to be the original KS 1.3 chip
1 x 8520A-1 chip, which I believe is a CIA chip
2 x 8520PD chips, which I believe are also CIA chips
Other Bits and Bobs ----------------------------------------------------------------------
43 Amiga Format CD-ROM cover disks in their original cases
No.10 (AF94 - Feb97) - No.52 (AF 136 - May 2000)
Spare Amiga Keyboard which came from an old A2000 (I think)
.. more to follow...! :-)
I unpacked the main Amiga a few days ago and after checking it internally, plugging in the keyboard, mouse and a monitor and... holding my breath... I fired it up! To my total suprise and utter amazement, the power light came on and the hard drive light flickered into life... the trusty old Amiga booted up first time!!! The only error was a requester asking for CD0: which obviosly wasn't connected. I have been playing about with it for the last fews days, just messing about with the programs and looking over the old documents and pictures. It didn't crash or even pop up a guru even once! Guess Amigas were built to last!
At this stage, I am not sure what this lot is worth or even if it would be better to sell everything as one job lot or separately but, at the end of the day I don't really want any Amiga bits left lying around... everything must go! I am currently in the process of sorting all this stuff out and taking photos and I will set up some photo & information pages at:
So guys, as I said before I have no idea what this lot is worth so I would welcome suggestions and/or feedback. If you have any questions please post here and/or email me
Oooops sorry guys, forgot to add my location to my user profie. I'm in Malaga, Spain
WOW! I really wasn't expecting the barrage of interest that I am getting. It has taken me totally by surprise! Thank You!
However some of you are emailing me directly, others are posting and others are sending me PMs, it's getting a bit confusing so could I please request that you email me directly if you would like to make an offer and post on the forum if you have any technical and/or other questions... it would just make my life a little easier that way.
I am still trying my best to get this stuff sorted out and to post photos and more info onto the website. Please bear with me... I will get the info online as soon as I can.
15:15 (GMT+1) I have just completed a major update to the info page and it now includes more photos, info and example shipping prices.
