iCube(X) System + Sensors (Evolver)

    Well, a while back I bought this guy's whole interactive art setup. It included the iCube System, an EZIO board, MAX/MSP, Jitter, and a big pile of sensors and electronics.
    Anyway, turns out I don't have much use for the iCube System, so I'm considering selling it along with a bunch of sensors.
    -The current iCubeX system costs $600 and can be found here: http://infusionsystems.com/catalog/product_info.php/cPath/21 /products_id/28 -I however own the previous version, simply "iCube". I did some research and as far as I can tell, it is the same thing as the iCubeX system, except the firmware is version 4.0, not 4.1. This can be updated for $50. 4.1 adds some other functionality that may or may not be useful to you. -You can read about it here: http://infusionsystems.com/catalog/product_info.php/products _id/100 -BTW, I have the manual and power supply.
    -As far as sensors and electronics, there are a few sensors wired up for use with the iCube including an LED, a potentiometer, two optical distance sensors, and a third party FSR (force sensing resistor) (which is a small 1"x1" circle on a stalk) wired up to work with the iCube. -Also are a bunch of wires designed to work with the iCube, however they have no sensors attached to them. The amount to about 20 channels of data (judging by the pins). -Finally I have a box of miscellaneous potentiometers and sliders (some with LEDs on them).
    So that's a slightly old iCube system + about $200-400 in sensors. Anybody want it for $500? Is that a reasonable price?
    And if anybody is willing to trade a D.S. Evolver for it, that's what I'm planning on buying.
    Thanks, sorry if this is ot or against the rules.
