£120ZX Spectrum case with mechanical keyboard. I'd like this for my Nucleon because the keyboard is much better and the spaces in the back of the case can be customised to suit a non-standard Spectrum layout. Perfect!
- Maxduino Slim or Miniduino Audio-player for loading Spectrum games. I have a similar device already but it's clunky to use and the backlight on the screen has failed. Not essential but would be nice to have.
- SpecDrum £50 Sound synthesiser (classic, not new). Just for fun, I would quite like to play with one of these.
- D80+K Floppy controller £200 approx 🇨🇿 Unique floppy disk interface with double-drive (recreation, new). Not essential just a technical curiosity. I already have a disk system (or two) for Spectrum, this would be another one. I'm interested in using this and learning more about it.
- ZX-AY case kit £9.99 🇳🇱 I already have the ZX-AY device, this is just a case to make handling/using it a bit easier and safer.
