Sending out a beacon here in search of an XVI model. Looking to find someone who has baby'd their system and ready to give it a new home. Not looking for a junker or anything scuffed up on the exterior badly.
I currently own a brand new never used Sony PVM 20L2MD that i hope to connect it to.

My price range lies between 400-1200 but negotiable. I'm watching Japan auctions as well so not going to jump at any offer immediately. Please be understanding as this is my first purchase on an X68000.
If capacitors need replacing please discuss with me directly and other information I may need to be aware of.

* I am not an expert at soldering but I have an elaborate set of equipment and have completed a NES RGB mod recently.

Look forward to what might arise . Otherwise I will patiently watch the WTS threads and auctions.

Thanks

Buddy, you're price range is pretty far off. A babied xvi is going to be a lot more than $1200.

I also think you're a bit out of your wheelhouse with the x68000. You should be extremely proficient at soldering before you dare touch one of these.

You should also know your way around a multimeter and ideally an oscilloscope.

So far as I understand a PVM L2 is a 15khz only display. You're gonna have a bad time trying to roll with that as an X68000 display. Furthermore, I'll second the impossibility of finding an XVI at that price, let alone one in a good shape.

I have an excel spreadsheet of every single X68000 computer that has sold in the last two years and you 102% with a 2% margin of error won't be buying one at that price for a pristine one.

Broken and junk XVI models are very commonly exceeding $1000. They're hitting $1100 now actually.

I'm not here to put you down. I'm explaining this to give you realistic expectation.

Let's be completely fair here, the message went up two years ago and didn't prompt any responses until literally this month. I wouldn't be too hard on the original poster, especially after all of the international market upheaval in all industries over the last year.
