I take it to be the latter of versions, according to the slider knobs. Does it have an original box or the flight case with it?

Buy it Andrew, before I have to...

Around 1984 I believe Steven, a little later than the earliest Stereo models but not as late as the Studio models of course.

Whether yours is from 80 - 81 or even 84, nowadays it is pretty much immaterial really given that even this Beautiful model is most likely 32yrs old now!

These things mattered in the early years after release, but just like classic cars, only makes them more special now when looked after as well as this particular example clearly has.

Whoever buys it, I wish them the best of luck with it, I'm gutted but it was obviously not meant to be. Customs charges did for me, it was going to bump the price up to at least £1300.00 and with what I have coming this week and Blackpool on Sunday, it was just too much.

Yes, Andrew, is around 1983-1984, I do not have the original packaging and also no flight case.

It's a real shame Del that something like import duty should be the only obstacle standing between you and this superb machine.
If only it could have been avoided. At £200-300 to import here, this factor does have to be one to which anyone is forced into having to give due diligence to sadly, myself included as it amounts to an extra 20% on the cost minimum.

Same day return flight Manchester to Zürich is half the import duty! If I really wanted it I'd go and collect it 😉

and put it where Ricky? Not the sort of thing to place overhead cabin locker.

I doubt it would fit anyhow. No bag for it to fit in, no case.

Then how, Prey tell?

I think it could work as carry on luggage, since I think this projector fits my carry on suitcase that I use all the time...

But it would have to lie on its back in the cabin stowaway. Not something id be willing to do for an item as fragile and valuable as this.

what about the weight of it, it would weigh a ton, anyway I checked out flights and couldn't find anything under £250.00 same day return, on top of that you have petrol and parking expenses, plus food, drink, cheaper to pay customs charges [Frown]

These weigh the best part of 14kg.
Whichever way they are transported, great great care HAS to be taken at all times.

They are no different to many other projectors from this era in so much as, they are designed with one very large main ciruit board for the amplifiers sat in the base of these units.

This means, with all these highly delicate electronic components being suspended on a mica circuit board of quite a large area, the slightest of poor handling techniques or a fall from any height even when surrounded by styrofoam, can lead to damage / cracking of this circuit board.

Very very risky to transport overseas without using the same method as Ian used to use.
He wrapped the whole boxed unit into a much much bigger outer box with a single duvet sandwiching the whole thing.
Often the finished packaging could be the size of a washing machine being delivered! 😆😆😀

Not that I really care or need to justify my post... it was just an idea!!!

However, yesterday lunchtime last minute flights online were £155 same day return.

You carry it on! I've done it in the past from Bulgaria (before they joined the EU) with a GS1200 and it was a breeze, you just need the balls to do it!!

Good luck with selling your fine machine Alessandro, I let mine go to a new home some years ago...
