Akai S1000 with 8MB RAM

“Original Akai S1000 sampler. In excellent working condition. Owned since new. Used very little in home studio. Just a little rack rash on top right corner (see photos).

Comes in its original box with original packaging, manual and original floppy disks. No IEC mains lead supplied but the connector is a straightforward, standard 3 pin (see photo).”

Akai S1000 with 18MB RAM

” Biete hier einen Akai S1000 Sampler im guten Gebrauchtzustand. Der Speicher ist auf 18 MB ausgebaut. Die Digital-Karte ist auch eingebaut. Das Display ist natürlich nicht mehr so hell wie am ersten Tag. Kann aber noch problemlos abgelesen werden.

Selling this classic Akai S1000 with 18MB memory and built in digital-card. Works flawless and looks pretty good for the age. Of course the display isn’t that bright anymore but still good readable.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Akai S1000HD

“As you can see from the photos, the unit is in mostly pretty good order. Just a few scuffs here or there but otherwise cosmetically pretty fine. The backlight – like in most models of this kind – is now faint, but still quite visible when turned up to maximum contrast (see photo). A new backlight can be purchased for around £20-30 apparently.

As you can see from the photos – the front XLR inputs are a little corroded on the surface but I think this is purely cosmetic and they should work fine.

I will be completely honest here and say the unit did have some trouble years ago, when the hard drive failed to load up. This seems to have resolved itself now, but the drive is still a little noisy at times. Hopefully it still has a good bit of life in it!!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Akai S1000 Project Machine

“Akai S1000 sold for spares or repair. (item 1)

Doesn’t come on. could be a simple fix.

I bought two of these from different sellers in the hope of fixing them and selling on

I was hoping it would be a simple fuse blown or a loose component but whatever it is is beyond my (very) limited know how.

comes with the Standard 2MB of RAM”
