Yes, if you were desperate to get your first analog, it might be a
good choice, but probably not at that price. That was very popular,
and shows that 40,000 of them were built in four
years, so they should be plentiful for some time. By contrast, it
shows 2,000 Jupiter 8's made in 4 years, but they were something like
USD $8k when new. I had read somewhere else that it's estimated a
little over a thousand exist.... but how the hell can they guess that?
Everytime one dies or gets damaged beyond repair, it's not necessarily
reported anywhere.
