Most of the UK ones have probably gone to the scrapyard years ago. Several of the early models suffered from poor quality electrolytic capacitors. Ebay.co.uk is your best bet - or come over on holiday and spend some time scouring car boot sales.

I m looking on ebay.co.uk, but It is very difficult find the model that I want. I thought someone on the forum, that could have it.

Private message becomes available once you have been a member for a while. We had to restrict its use for new members simply because spammers were misusing it to bother our members. Its nothing personal - all new members get thge same restriction.

The drx100 was one of the ones that had faulty electrolytic capacitor issues so most of them will have been scrapped years ago......

The Paces were also notorious for blowing their capacitors....... Another one that most of them will have ended up in the scrap heap
