Pics of the inside below.

"Excellent example of an Akai S1100. 16mb RAM, Compact Flash Upgrade (SCSI RaizinMonster), SCSI Expansion board, Effects Board (often sold separately now), OS 4.3 EPROM upgrade, SMPTE I/O Expansion board, Digital out, New Display Backlight, Rack Ears. Made in Japan!

The S1100 was Akai Japan’s pinnacle professional studio quality audio sampler, none of the Chinese built Akai’s that followed come close. Originally Cost £3,299 = £7k today! Superior circuitry to the Akai S1000, with 20-bit DACs providing improved s/n ratio and dynamic range. Sounds fantastic - considerately better than any DAW sampler I’ve heard."
