The main music store chain was part owned by Roland.
Coincidence? I think not.
I got my MKS7 from Brashes cheap when it went out of production.

Also, there was at one stage an effort to get electronic music labs into
schools, based around the 100 series (not the 100M, I mean the big black
stuff). I bought the remains of one system years ago. (Gone now...)

favourable than between the Yen and other currencies at the time?

(though i think the ship/reef story is the most plausible :-))
