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

Akai S2800 with SCSI

Akai S2800 sampler/ workstation.
These akai units revolutionised the recording industry in the later 1980s/ 90s.
Built to an excellent professional standard and with a quality sound.
I bought this one new and the memory was upgraded at the time – still ridiculously small by todays standards though!
I haven’t used it in anger for many years now but I did plug it in a couple of months ago and was genuinely surprised by the high quality sounds produced.
The display contrast is quite faint – a common fault I think.” Click here to search for MPCs on eBay
