This Emax II is essentially a 'Turbo' model, but the extra RAM and Hard Drive were added after the fact.  However, they were genuine Emu parts installed by an authorized dealer.  Sold by the original owner, it includes the following:
• Original user manual
• Original box.
• Computer Transfer cable
• Power cord
• Spare SCSI hard drive

The internal SCSI drive contains most, if not all of the original banks, plus some I created from sample CDs and my own recording.  (I couldn't find the original discs for the unit, and it's possible that I discarded them, but if I find them, I'll enclose them.)

This unit has had a fair amount of use in the past, but has been sitting idle in a rack for quite a while.  It was only moved once when I changed residences.  It has been tested to load samples and play them back via MIDI.

This unit is not Mint condition, but pretty close considering its age, and you would have to look very long and hard to find another one with these specs and in this condition.

Sorry for the high shipping cost, but this unit packed with everything weighs almost 30 lbs.

Note:  A switch was added on the back to turn the power on and off to the SCSI drive to cut down on noise, as most of the OS resides in RAM while the sampler operates.

Full Disclosure:  There is a screw missing on the bottom of the unit (don't know how that happened). The transfer cable was used with a PowerMac 8600 running OS 9.x - I can't guarantee it will work with your hardware/software.  The 200Mb SCSI drive is a replacement for the original drive and was installed a number of years ago.  It also looks like the back light on the LCD might be out or at least very dim, but the LCD itself is still sharp and easy to read (see photo).
