So does this mean I was right when I said that he would ask for more than $5,000 for his DDR machine?

In addition, why not add this on top of $2100+?

I heard the similar thing... Not sure about Daniel (Hughes)'s actual called price for PIU, though....
But if anyone is willing to spend $7000 for what he has, perhaps he/she can also look into this TX cabinet?

It ends later tonight and will likely double in the last few minutes. We'll see! I might do 1.5 in it but I'm still nervous about quality.

That's not a TX. It's a SX2 with a TV bolted on the front.

Sold for 1811. I was very tempted but I don't want to just buy a big ol' machine commitment for our house when we'd have to rearrange stuff and without having Meg's real approval lol. Kinda a big decision. I am KIND OF kicking myself for not bidding since 1811 isn't ridiculous and probably doable for me. Oh well. I e-mailed the seller because he's sold 3 or 4 in the last month so hopefully he gets another one sometime soon.

I am a very hesitant person! Chad just sell me your machine omggggg

That machine was in waaaaaay better shape than mine. I went for the cheap fixer-upper pieco-crapper. If it weren't $1,100 including shipping, it probably wouldn't have been worth it. There will be other eBay deals as long as you're patient. Next time you come over, we can take a look at mine so you know a little more about them guts.

Now that essentially EVERY motherfucker has a DDR machine in their house I'm sort of in the market to get one myself so I can cross this off my bucket list. Unfortunately I'm like MonMotha in the sense that I don't have anywhere to put a machine since I've bummed from living space to living space virtually every year since 2004 (no joke, I live in some other motherfucking place every god damn year) and don't have the luxury of a house.

Does anyone have a house or space where I could store a DDR machine for the next 2+ years? I'm considering hitting up the Blandfords but I'm open to suggestions.

Has there been any sort of fights over the machine? You haven't been on IRC in a while so we haven't had much opportunity to really discuss the anticipated long term impact this will have on your marriage.
