Yes, that is highly amusing. It's not even the "ii" version. The one in the auction has hi-z inputs. It's also exactly ten times the price I'd be willing to pay. LOL
I appreciate all the answers and the general sentiment (most likely correct) that the EM100ii is under-powered. However, I couldn't resist. I stopped at the store on my way home from Albany yesterday. When I asked about it, the salesman immediately warned me (to his credit) that it's short on power, which I told him I understood. He didn't know its back story or why it's so clean after 35 years. He did say he had been reluctant to take it in, but since it was in such good shape, he had. A quick demo later, I offered him $70 and we had a deal.We're going to use it for band rehearsals at home, and I'll offer it to my daughters' little private school (really little: 24 kids total) for meetings, talent shows, etc. They often show videos that the kids have produced in their classes to the all-school meetings, and need something a little better than a pair of computer speakers.If my son's band ever gets to the point where they're gigging, I'll recommend they rent powered mains and use the internal amps for monitors, or more likely add external power for monitors, too, and save the little internal amps for around the house. Now, I need to find a deal on some used wedges, I suppose.Anyway, for $70 it's fun to own this little piece of audio history, especailly since it's in like-new condition. Here's to 35 more years.
