    Really, still? You're practically giving decks away- it's hard to find mediocre condition techs that need refurbishing for $300 each. I was getting $900-$1000 for a set of refurbs a couple years ago before they were discontinued (on craigslist so no fees/hassle) and now I see nice painted/powder coated sets of MK2s go for $1400 on ebay regularly.

    Yup. $300 is done in basic colors. Original 1200 silver, original 1210 very dark grey (almost black) or pure white. For custom colors, there's an additional $50 because I will have the have the paint mixed at a local (professional) paint shop where they use color codes on the computer to match the exact shades required. But there are also times that I mix the paint myself and do a little adjustments before spraying them.

    Make sure they stop at Toshi Station for some power converters. I'm not sure they use the same plugs over there.

    No prob about the plugs. I've got an astromech droid here at home helping me out convert power, plugs and things. Hahaha!

    So…how about price (incl. shipping to 30337) and turnaround time for a pair of black refurbished m3ds with internal grounding, and an LED target light?

    How much less are mk2s?

    Like…I'm in the market…was planning on picking up a set later this week, but they're probably going to charge a bit over 300 each for mk2s that are electronically good but cosmetically "bleh". Only plus is no shipping and local.

    And I knew the normal things to check, I meant something like "fat ass RCA cables mean that the cables are stressing the board" kinds of things.

    Nicadraus, where exactly are you located?

    I want to get mine topped off a bit, but don't feel comfortable doing the work myself.
