Hey fam,

Have found a pretty cheap sp-555 for sale locally that looks like it's in good condition, however it has no memory card.

1. Will I be able to sample into the internal memory to test the pads etc. with just an rca a la the sp404sx (I have a lil experience with a 404sx but none with the 555);

2. Does anyone know if problems with card readers are common? Is it safe to go ahead and buy this ting without knowing if the card reader works? The lad selling it says he bought it without a card 6 years ago and hasn't really touched it.

3. Is there anything else that I should look out for when testing the machine?

Cheers for your help.

1. The internal memory has approx. 5 mins sampling time. The 555 is very similar to the 404 but has some really exceptional features... You'd feel right at home there if you're familiar with the sx.

Can't answer your other questions, sorry. I bought mine second hand with the memory card and use the heck out of it and not experienced any problems... this one sat idle for 6 years? Maybe it's like new? What does a new memory card cost??
