    Arrow The M520 power supply hunt is a bust.

    Currently, I'm deciding whether I want it, as is, less power supply, if I'll let someone else take it in my place, or to just scrap the deal altogether.

    Not decided, TBD, but the news is that they had this donated, and may never have gotten the supply, so as such, I was mistaken. This unit was not in normal service prior to Ebay listing.

    It's a decision I'm going to discuss with someone tomorrow, as to whether or not he wants it, TBD.

    I dont know how much it will cost to ship or pick it up but it might be worth the parts for the future. I dont know its a hard one.
    Im sure you have thought about all those things though.

    Arrow I'll decide by tomorrow. Need to talk to someone.

    Bummer though, eh?

    Personally, I don't want it, but someone I'm talking with tomorrow might. TBD.

    What was it going for, like $100?

    I'd so much want to take my chances on finding a PS or maybe have one built, BUT (of course) not knowing it's working condition IS a huge factor... Could end up costing way more than it's worth.

    The whole deal is clearly the work of the devil!
    Soooo tempting!!!

    I've got $400 saved...I just have to keep saving and find a nice 520 for maybe $600 (If possible)... I want one really really bad.

    Arrow A conspiracy hatched by the digital underground, I'd say!

    No, the seller was clearly not familiar with pro audio equipment, and she did not realize the mixer was missing anything, until I gave her a little crash course on the M520.

    I bailed on the deal, and asked her to relist the unit, less power supply. I don't doubt the mixer-less-supply might bid even higher than $96, next time, but watch Ebay for that listing, coming soon!

    Sure, if I wanted to take a BIG chance on the M520 board, less supply, and then hold out for finding a power supply and cable on auction by itself, well, good luck! I don't think that was a sure enough of a bet to go all the way with it.

    I don't doubt, that part-for-part, the M520-less-supply is worth all of $96, and then some, but it's not what I was looking for or bidding on.

    I was looking for a mixer that worked, right out of the box.

    Arrow FWIW, there are other M520's out there, currently.

    I see at least one M520/complete on auction now, as complete. You're not gonna get it for $96. though,... more like ~$600.

    As for me, I've already purchased another complete and working M520, and am awaiting ground service delivery of it from Tuscon, AZ. Supposedly, the unit has already shipped, and I'd expect it to hit my doorstep some time next week. Stay tuned for that!

    Arrow Yeah, that sucks, alright.

    But that was then, Aug 22, and this is now, Sept 22.

    I also saw that PS-520 auction, real time, but was unable to bid that day. Obviously, that would have been the ticket, to by chance have picked up the PS-520 in August, then the M-520 mixer in Sept, but believe me, I would have bid if I had been at the computer that day.

    Oh well, all I can say, is:
    easy come, easy go!
