i have written a review in german and english on the chroma with some very nice sound-files (my humble and not objective opinion :-) ).
See Reviews for the latest URLs.
i would be happy if you could include the link in your pages somewhere

Here's a chance to pick up a spare Chroma. I'll add these to the registry as well.

Subject: Chroma For sale posting
I would like to post the following For Sale listing, please:
Chromas for sale: I am a service tech, and one of my clients has 3 Chromas available for sale. He is not looking to sell all 3 to the same person of course, you can take your pick of them. All 3 include flight cases. There is at least one of the MIDI interface boxes available also that can be sold with any of them, possibly more (I will check). I believe there are pedals for all 3 of them.
They all seem to work, although they are being sold "as is". All of the keys are in good condition on all of them (no yellowing, no broken keys, etc.) Otherwise, two units are in so-so cosmetic condition and the 3rd is in very good cosmetic condition. I have serviced one of them (#0749) in the past when it had a previous owner (doing minor repairs, replaced the battery, calibration, recapped the power supply, and just generally cleaned up and tweaked it) but don't know the repair history of the other 2.
The serial numbers are #0749, #0547, and #0825. The #0825 is in very good/excellent cosmetic condition. The other 2 are in so-so cosmetic condition. (#0749 is quite scratched up on both the wood and the top black metal cover. #0547 has foam stuck to the wood surfaces due to a problem with a previous road case but otherwise is in good cosmetic condition on the front panel and metal.)
My client would like to sell these quickly and will take the best offer(s).
All are available to be shipped if you pay shipping and insurance costs, or they can be looked at and picked up locally in the Los Angeles area.
Please contact me if you have any questions or are interested in any of these. Julie Yarbrough.

Chris - any guestimates/info on the ballpark they'd be looking for for 'best offer' ?

You know as much as I do. But the e-mail does state that he or she "would like to sell these quickly;" combined with this, the desire to move three instruments simultaneously may make them receptive to whatever offers.

I found this a few months back and never got to sending it out. Not sure whether it's still available.http://www.bigcitymusic.com/product.asp?cat=vintage&pid=3000646
