Even if Alto here in the U.S. could give you a great price, it might be cancelled out by any import taxes you might have to pay (if that applies in this case).

One of the 192's are 16 in and 16 out analog and the other 16x16 i/o digital.

PT9HD aswell in the bundle and I thought I would ask if you know as here in sweden the dealers pray on people like us who have a pretty sweet studio so they think we don't care about money. What they don't realize is that we want more and more so every penny counts and goes towards paying for our new S6 M40 24 fader version with the bigger knob units and we do need the best deal to get the HDX 2 system. Gonna use Avid all the way in our newly built Control Room 1 and UA Apollo all the way in the second room where we have the 4 Artist series so any advice is greatly appreciated,

I have seen lots of HD3 systems and 1 192 analog interface PCIe here in stockholm go for the equivalent of 1500 USD so maybe we are better off selling it second hand and maybe split up the parts!?

Best Regards and Thank you guys for any input offered,

Christopher
Honestly, I don't know about his selling/shipping overseas, you'd have to call him and ask. If your system is a PCI/x system, I would not waist time triying to sell, as it is not worth very much at all. If it is PCIe, there is a fairly strong market for that in the US. A core card will sell for 800, Accel Cards for 650 each, 192 I/O for 700, Digital not too much, demand is very low for these units these days.

Those prices are in the US market, a lot of buyers are afraid of buying from overseas, me being one of them, not sure why really, just the unknown I guess.

Barry... That works? They will take a PCIx hd system?


Thanks

Exchange is valid for any HD system, whether HD-original, HD-accell, HD-pcie

Thanks guys

The system HD3/4 is PCIe and both 192's are analog and one of them I belive has an additional extension in it. I will look into selling it as we never use that system and probably won't use it in the future either.

Thanks Barry and everyone else who have great opinins and info

Make sure you get transfer of ownership with each card and you will have no issues. Done it tons of times!!!!!
