The MS-8 didnít play nicely with my OEM HU, so itís time for it to go. Functionally itís perfect, there are a few cosmetic nicks and scratches on the unit from the install that I tried to capture in the pics below. It comes with everything a new unit comes with, including the packaging. I broke the original display cable and hacked up the input harness wires, but bought new replacements for both from JBL. Iíll include the old input harness (thatís why you see two in the pics), as itís still perfectly functional. Also included with the setup CD is a burned CD containing the calibration track, since JBL forgot to include it on the setup CD.
I bought this new, and itís still covered under factory warranty until September. Iíll guarantee itís 100% functional and in the condition described here. I wonít guarantee that its performance will blow you away or even work with your OEM HU.
Note: In trying to make this work in my system, Andy Wehmeyer at JBL sent me a firmware update for the DSP, that I installed. So, this doesn't have the current production rev level for the DSP portion only. I can't tell you what the difference is between the firmware levels. I was impled to me that the tuning algorithim is slightly tweaked, but I could never get the MS-8 to gel with my OEM HU well enough to be able to note any sonic differences.
Price is $450 shipped, insured via USPS parcel shipping to CONUS PayPal verified addresses. You can pay the cost difference for priority shipping if you want it quicker. I reserve the right to refuse an offer from anyone I choose not to deal with, for any reason.
Trades I would consider (with cash where needed);
Audison Bit One (first choice)
Audison Voce or Thesis comps
Ipod Classic 160gb or Touch 64gb, must be in excellent condition
MFSL, SACD or other master recording CDís, or even regular remastered CDís if you have enough that I would be interested in.
Test discs (Autosound, Chesky, etc.) must be the original, no burned copies.
If you're active duty US military or recently separated from the military -I'll make you a sweet deal on this. I'll even work something out if you have an APO/FPO address. Be prepared to show me some proof of your service tho.
