wow - seeing this msg inspired me to dig through my old receipts to
see how much i paid for my echoplex, because i certainly don't remember
paying *that* much!

found my receipt, dated 10/3/95 (yeah - 3 years ago, wow!), from
Renegade Music in Florida (don't even know if they still exist).
the total for the EDP with the foot controller and shipping was

did i just get massively lucky, or did Oberheim raised the price 
by $200?!  i know Oberheim stuff is now being manufactured by
some other division of Gibson - maybe their cost is higher now.
i'm still running the old EDP system firmware - but i can't imagine
that the new version adds an extra $200!

guess i should have bought stereo EDP's back then, when the price 
was right!!
