    Best of luck. Did you run out of needles to find in haystacks? Just curious... what do you think you're going to do if you need factory service for the thing? Burgess dropped off the face of the earth a few years ago and hasn't been heard from since.

    You can do whatever you'd like... but unless you live for agita I'd recommend you search for a viable alternative to a Sontec anything.

    Best of luck with it.

    Just a question on this unit....Is it SO much better than say, a GML? I really dont know but I do know theres a lot of GML mastering EQ's floating around and George is still with us....

    fwiw - http://www.vintageking.com has a 250 available. These guys offer great service and I wouldn't hesitate to purchase from them. That said - the 250 ain't exactly a 430.

    Finding a working 430 that isn't already in place somewhere (and where most likely there's no way if they are using that they'll want to let it go) is probably going to be extremely difficult as some of the opamps are proprietary and impossible to source these days - so the number of units that are not already in racks are fairly unrepairable unless you did a massive retrofitting and changed some things around.

    Good luck!

    Best regards,
