There is a contact button on the SPS site and the store also has an address listed. But yes, it's not all over the place to limit the amount of spam received. My address would be "cb", with kryoflux.com for the domain.

If your post is intended to get people to register interest: I'm interested in one of them, depending on the final price of course.

I did not have the time to email all that have registered before, but we got a couple of drives and three are going live soon.

Does it still make sense to subscribe here? Last entry from 2015. I am looking for a modded drive. Anyone here, who can help me or sell me one?

thanks.

Just checked out the web store, and have a quick question. The store says it won't read normal (non-flippy,) double sided disks. wouldn't this work just fine if both tracks were set at +8 alignment (-a8 -b8 on the command line?)

It does indeed work that way, although I recall that due to the differences on the stepper motors, some drives might not be able to reach all 84 tracks then. Tho you can read all the regular tracks.

Drives back in very limited quantities. Also prices for drives going up because they are really hard to get. We still can deliver NOS quality.
