Dang, no postage.
I would've bid.

Got to love the positioning of the switches & faders on it though :)

Or maybe a Melbourne based TR member would be willing to pick it up and post it to you?

I used to own one.
Not great sounding IMHO and very limited features.
$300 is OK I guess, but I've never missed mine since I sold it.
Rare does not always = good.

I guess $300 is about what you'd expect for one nowdays....
though I picked mine up off ebay for $70 just two years ago... (more beat up than that one.... yes)
:-)

it's a very limited synth, but also really lovely sounding osc and filter.
and the controls are ass-backwards. which can be a bit confusing if you don't use it all the time.

aaaah.... if only the MS series kept the sound quality of the 700/880.... a ms-10 format minikorg 700 would be amazing.
