Ok, I have decided that 12 Euro for the adapters will compensate the building cost+delivery(from Spain to The Netherlands). I mean the same 12 Euro for each of the 2 options,  slot version+flat cable, or stand-alone version.

Note that the slot option needs the useful bus expander, on stock for 15 Euro+shipping(available from me).

The SymbiFace has a price of 105 Euro, then the only remaining cost is the shipping cost from The Netherlands to your country.

If you plan to use the SF3 on one of the other SymbOS computers, MSX, CPC or PCW, better if you advise of it to Hans, because then, the /BUSDIR cable fix has to be made on a not definitive way, probably with a lead and connector on the adapter.

Thanks for all your work with this :)

A couple of questions. And sorry in advance if this has been answered before. I have been away for a rather long time ...

What is the approx. price for the SymbiFace3?

Can I use this busexpander? I know I have to the special 12 euro adaptor for the symbiface card.

And a related question? Is there any news on EP support for GFX-NINE? As far as I remember you where working on that also.

Thank you in advance!

Hello John Fante.

Yes, the price of the Symbiface3 is 105€. You have the correct bus expander, so you will also need the slot adapter, 12€ more. To this the shipping cost to your country will be added.

About the GFX-NINE, yes we can enjoy a wonderful  g9k version of SymbOS on the Enterprise, but for that you will need a fixed version of the M-Slot adapter,. The one I sold you lacks a 74LS245 chip needed for correct operation of the MSX cartridges. I will send you one free of charge.

Yesterday I was producing some SF3 slot adapters.

I am out of stock of 50 pin EDGE connectors for the MSX Slot. The big PCB is an AMSDAP designed by Hans, an Amstrad CPC bus expander with 4 CPC slots + 2 MSX slots. A different approach than on the Enterprise.

I am sorry, but I must rise a few Euro the prices of the adapters.

This is a hobby activity, and what I can't do is to loss money on it.

The reasons are evident, the CoVid19 disease has almost closed the cheap component shops in China, so I must find similar components on on-line European shops, slightly more expensive.

Some parts still have to be bought in China, like all the connectors, the PCBs and some outdated components.

But don't worry, the adaptors are still cheap enough.

For the same reasons, Hans has raised 5 Euro the price of the SymbiFace3, up to 110 Euro.

New prices will be only applied to new orders from now on, not to already accepted pending orders.

Also, to discharge Hans from work, and because he is very new to the Enterprise computer, from now on, better order yours adapters and SF3s directly with a PM to my nick.

Thanks for your understanding.

Gustavo.
