Well, I found a V1 1.8 on Craigslist for $75 and I couldn't resist. It showed up this afternoon. Looks like its in decent shape, and I'll try to power it up with the cord from my RX65. I had to order a power cord from Valentine because the seller said he had it hard wired (don't worry, I called VR and verified the serial number before I bought it). Therefore, I don't know the rev # yet but hopefully the V1 power cord will show up next week. Can't wait to try this thing out.
Depending on the rev # (I think its fairly old) I may send it in after the 4th of July for an update.
