I am surprised that the serial number says #302...suggesting that three
hundred were made (perhaps its model #2 in the serial chain?). I have an

like only around 50 PS-3300's were made because their retail price was so
high.  Well all i can say is that i am glad i own an PS-3100 at least, such
a lush sounding polyphonic.
