Falcon Upgrades

Post by PaulJ » Sat Mar 30, 2019 4:39 pm

Since I snagged a falcon and am awaiting its arrival I've been looking at upgrades. The one that stands out is the ct60c. However it all appears to have been popular at some point but passed into history, even read about Exxos's plight with his ct60. I'm assuming these have long passed into history and the only way to obtain one is on eBay or god knows where. Does anyone have any info on these? Also any wiz-bang upgrades for a falcon I should be chasing? Also since a falcon has a true SCSI interface is there software to run an 8mm tape? :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Some small hints have been given that a new batch will be made. When and how many is uncertain.

Apparently a new batch is already made, but willy is waiting for cpu sockets.

on www.atari-forum.com

There is a forum dedicated to the ct60 there.

Also I recommend a bus accelerator, to be honest if I had to choose between a ct60e or a Phantom bus accelerator - I would choose the Phantom. You can buy it from Tuxie on this forum if he still has them.

A ct60e without a bus accelerator is like putting a V8 engine inside a robin reliant.

You can put your name on the list for CT60e and or SuperVidel on AF (you vote on that survey thingy to do it)

Still no timeframe :(
