Not really.... this is just a mockup.
It doesn't actually have the auto clean, Ultimatum growl or smart gate circuits installed.

Funny how things come back around!

I originally rescued this "thing" from the garbage bin at a repair shop. Bought it for a few hundred $$ because it looked very real on eBay. When I got it was obvious that this was a mockup, with the stick-on front panel. It was not functional and I sold it to Chris. He did some work on it and concluded it was not worth that much either without the critical circuitry. He turned it for a profit and not it seems the buyer is trying to do that as well! I can assure you it is not worth $795......

"I can assure you it is not worth $795"

Well, out of curiosity, I kept making offers up to $700, and they kept getting declined instantaneously.
So my guess is that the Make Offer option is set to only accept probably just shy of his asking price.

I am curious as to what Chris sold it for...

Thanks GB... I ended up picking it up for $650 + $25 shipping.

I guess no one noticed that it is actually an XPRa.
So even without the poweramp board, it still has decent value as a late model XPRa.
(My thanks to Chris for having David do a refurb on it to get it running right).

Since I have an extra empty XP100 cabinet in decent shape with the poweramp board, I'll have another XP100a for my collection.
I think that puts me at 2 XP100a's, an XP212a, and 2 XPRa rack units.

The Ultimatum mockup will be nice just to have for historical value.... or resale later.
Looks like everyone came out a winner on this thing!
