For reasons I can't be bothered to go into right now (but surely will at some point), I find this extremely attractive. Note the complete lack of CD/MP3 compatability. A bit out of my price-range though. No matter, there's a few cheaper options around. To be honest, all I really want is another Hitachi TRK 8190, like the one I used to have. No doubt the mists of nostalgia are clouding my judgement, but I don't think I've ever heard a portable system that sounded as good as that. I used to put an Amstrad computer-based drum sequencer through it, and it sounded so damn brutal. Modern life is rubbish.
