We hate 2020!

Just when we thought 2020 couldn't get any worse! We were about to re-open after many months of being closed but then disaster struck when a mains water pipe burst and flooded much of the ground floor of the museum.
Sadly re-opening has now been postponed. Read More >>>

Signal Sintez 2

A Moldovan Spectrum variant which was made in a military factory. Many units, possibly up to a million, were exported to the USSR.

It resembles a ZX Spectrum Plus, but has a noticeably inferior keyboard. Ports include an RGB socket, Kempston joystick, and Sinclair Standard Joystick.

There were different versions technically as some did not have a ULA, this one does.

The machine was expandable to be 128K compatible, usually they were fitted with 512K or 1Mbyte and have the AY or YM sound chip installed.

Not many machines survive, as it is said a Turkish businessman bought up many of them to strip out for their metals.

Manufacturer: Signal
Date: 1991
