VSX auction on eBay from Grimlock's Paradise


Where these were once as rarely seen as unicorns and leprechauns, these have been appearing a little more since late last year.

Here comes another VSX. It is on eBay for a BIN price of US$10,000 minus $0.01.

I have added this record to my tally here.
