For those who aren't up to speed on their German Language skills: The guy is only selling the empty PCB seen below, NOT a finished device!

ooh, I normally translate these...but did not this time, always the way.

Oh well, here's an Amstrad CPC 472 that I'm pretty sure is pre built  :D

Oh, I always wanted to get my hands on one of those, just to see exactly how the extra 8K were connected.

I thought this was covered in a Spanish forum. They desoldered it and showed that the tracks don't quite get to the pads on the ram,
but another take on it would be interesting.

Personally I could not see how the 8k could be accessed given the limit connections available at the rom slot....

Yes, I read the stuff on the Spanish Forums. My plan was to come up with a simple mod that would make the 8K usable (probably requiring a few links to other parts of the main PCB).

You can take a look here Mainboard Versions - CPCWiki.


Basically the took off the rom chip and put it in a separate pcb, with a couple of chips more that are not connected anywhere. If you take a closer look at the picture, you'll see that the ribbons have the number of cables for each pin of the rom chip, no extra juice there  ;D

The ROM signals are most of what you would need. All 8 Data lines, 5V, GND and some of the Address lines, so it should be possible to get the RAM working with just a few extra wires, but the RAM would be mapped somewhere strange, definitely not DKtronics compatible or anything like that.

Suspiciously he claims the keyboard works perfectly and then misses out the first few keys on each line as if they don't in fact work...

Nice little collection with the AMX mouse and multiface II even if the 6128 possibly doesn't work... Shame it's collection only.

Amstrad CPC 6128 with lots of games and accessories. Working condition unknown |

You beat me to it by seconds... 

I wanted to find another one; last time I tried the one I have there was some problem, though maybe I should open it up first and check it's whole inside. It's not like they go for cheap...

Just had an idea, would there be any point or interest in creating a price guide?

We could track prices, but a price guide is very difficult. I've seen MultiFace II go for anything from €30 to €70.

I have two of them (both working), one for the Speccy and one for the CPC :)

LOL @ Amstrad 128k colour personal computer Amstrad CPC6128 | eBay - "I have not seen one of these on ebay ever!!! so dont missout it could be your only chance to own one!!!!"

There's at least a couple of 6128s every month, usually many more, so this guy hadn't been looking very hard!
