..and I have one. Not brought it up for some years. But I consider it
to be the best implementation of the classic S-100 front panel. Evan,
to my knowledge Ithaca Audio was based in Ithaca NY. They were an
early producer of S-100 cars. They became Ithaca Intersystems at some
I'd appreciate someone writing a brief history on the company, for my
Web page. Of course the author will be named, and I'll not post their
address but refer any inquiries.
Sellam, congrats on your acquisition, hope you get it running. It's
fun to see the front panel self-step through a program. A somewhat
famous owner was Jeff Duntemann, a software and science fiction author
who later became a publisher of computing magazines and books in the
1980's and 90's. He had both the Intersystem and the first IBM PC; he
amused others by showing how the Z80 based Ithaca ran rings around the PC.
