Akai S2800

“Had this from new since 1995 but need to finally sell it due to lack of space.

It has had a lot of use over the years and has been gigged a few times but it does still work.
the back light seems very dim and I don’t think the floppy drive works anymore. it could possibly have other problems.

I’ve powered it up and it seems to be OK but I’m still selling as sold as seen no returns.

it only comes with about 2MB of memory as far as I remember but I think it can be upgraded. ” Click here to search for MPCs on eBay

Akai S2800

“This is from the last generation of great sounding Akai 16-bit samplers (before they all got a bit too clean and lean sounding). Built like a tank and in great used condition, only issue is the screen backlight has faded and will need to be replaced (very common problem, new backlights are £25) though it is still just about useable as-is.

Comes with all original box, packing, manual and (UK) power cable.” Click here to search for MPCs on eBay

Akai S2800 with SCSI

“Akai S2800 Sampler with Ultra-Wide SCSI interface.

Selling as having a bit of a clear out and want some different bits of kit. Display still really bright, not even turned up full in pics. In perfect working order despite the top of the case being a bit bent and having some tape residue on it.

Interface displayed in Utilities screenshot allowing for digital in/out

Free memory displayed in Sample Edit screenshot, I think it’s 16MB but not too sure.

Power supply and Ultra-Wide SCSI lead also provided, no manual but they are available.” Click here to search for MPCs on eBay

“Vintage AKAI S2800 with original manuals and sample disks – also spare floppies and samples.
Display has dimmed a little but this is pretty common… still perfectly fine in dimmed light which is when it will be used most!
Floppy disk works fine and there are some extra sample disks not shown in the pics.
Only ever used in home studio.” Click here to search for MPCs on eBay
