Also, the Echoplex uses 30 pin SIMMs for memory. I've seen prices for the
4MB simms as low as $30!!!! That means you can get a full 200 seconds in
an Echoplex for only $120 or so. When the thing first came out nearly 2
years ago, the 4MB simms were close to $200 each, and having the full 200
seconds seemed like such an extravagant luxury. Now it seems like everyone
should have that much....
