New AMSTRAD!
« on: 13:49, 25 March 15 »
I wonder if you know this AMSTRAD DA-155 and why it is not presented in cpcwiki. It  has some interesting functions, that other models doesn't.

Ah, a bright GT66 Monitor eventually, it was about time. However I don't like this Mac-like design.

If you combine this Amstrad tool with RetroBright(R) you can make a 464 look like the Grey Arnold :D That's how they build it

Don't complain so much. It follows the Amstrad "just one power cable" rule.

In this case it's pretty obvious which one was the chicken and which was the egg :)

It's a shame Amstrad was so quick to drop the spectrum name on products they got from the spectrum r&d dept. when they aquired all their stock  ;)
