>>Yesterday I was in the local Guitar Center and they had a mint condition
Roland Jupiter 8 for $2000, is that a little high? Or is that the going

Because I am going to put a JP-8 up for auction, I have been looking at what

they are selling for lately. It depends on whether it has a DCB interface
a 3rd party Midi interface or none at all. If it was a later Roland model
with a DCB interface (in good condition) I would normally say between
$1500-$1800. But everytime I see one sell, the price seems to keep going
On ebay (and they are always above the real value on synths like this) the
last five I kept track of went for:

$2125 (with MD-8 DCB interface and case)
$2000 (3 minor electrical problems and scratches)
$2350 (with Midi, mint physical condition but some flakey buttons)
$2876 (Encore Midi Interface, mint condition)
