A Congo Jr, and fader panel!
The 2 go together, as a complete unit.

Great console, great software. Just add a screen or 2, keyboard & mouse and you're good to go.
$1200 for both is a dirt cheap bargain.
If I could afford the shipping I'd buy it !

If it doesn't already have Cobalt software installed, get in touch with ETC and they will assist you to get it on board at no cost.
Cobalt is version 7 of Congo software (a major interface change to do with touch screens) and is still very much in development.

Thanks I was looking to buy it the units are at the local university $1200 for both consoles.

Ah, so you're the potential buyer then! I totally read past this post when writing my prior response. $1200 is concerningly low for something like this. Either it doesn't work, has issues, or they just want to get rid of this (or don't know what they have). All a possibility. I'd ask a few more questions just to be sure you're not being dumped a faulty product, but otherwise that'd be an amazing deal!

Yes the units are fully working came out of the theater department Michael Douglas is alumni and donates a lot of money.

Yeah, I mean if you've done your homework and trust the vendor it's an amazing price for the console, and as pointed out above, it's one unit.  The board with all the buttons and encoders is the "Congo Jr." and the half with all the faders is the fader wing.  You can use the "Congo Jr." half as a stand-alone product but the fader wing can only be used alongside the Congo Jr. (or any other compatible console). 

Have you found out the age of this and if it runs Cobalt?  That's just a very low price, so it's raised my eyebrows a bit.  Seeing as you're a Danley user, imagine if you found someone selling a pair of SH96HOs for $800...  Can it happen?  Sure, but it'd make you think for a bit...  The fader wing alone usually sells for more than what the seller is asking for the whole thing.  My only thought is that this might be a pre-2013 board and/or is still running Congo, which might justify the extremely low price.  I seem to recall Congo being released around the 2008 timeframe, so it is quite possible this desk is nearly 10 years old already.  Either way, best of luck with it if you decide to purchase!

Yes all good points and thank you this campus has so much money they sell off old equipment at a fraction of the price last year I got a pair of EAW KF650z's in near perfect condition for $65 pr lol I couldn't believe it and yes I would be alll over the SH96HO's for $800 as I'm a Danley dealer and even dealer cost is a lot on those boxes.
