There's a later Polaris version - not working - up on ebay at a buy it now price of £650

... which personally I wouldn't pay, even if it was working.

TBH - I've no idea what a Chroma is worth these days- probably not that much; it hasn't got the 'wow' factor of a Jupiter 8 or Prophet 5, though no doubt someone somewhere thinks it's the bee's knees and will pay you silly money for it. Just a case of finding that person !

Last one I remember was on ebay about 9-12 months ago and went for £1200. It was bought by Richard Lawson (RLMusic.com) who probably sold it on for double that though I'm sure he did a nice refurb job.......

Have you tried the Chroma group?

http://www.rhodeschroma.com/

Their forum (user group) has an entry for this month with one for sale in the US for $2000 so I reckon £1200-£1800 would be a good UK indication
