For sale
Atari Mega STE set.

General info
In 1989 Atari released the 520STE and 1040STE, enhanced versions of the ST with improvements to the multimedia hardware and operating system. It features an increased color palette of 4,096 colors from the ST's 512, genlock support and a blitter co-processor which can quickly move large blocks of data around in RAM. RAM in the STE is upgradable via SIMM’s. The STE is the first Atari with PCM audio; using a new chip, it adds the ability to play back 8-bit (signed) samples at 6258 Hz, 12517 Hz, 25033 Hz and even 50066 Hz, via DMA. The channels are arranged as either a mono track or a track of LRLRLRLR.. bytes. Besides two enhanced joystick ports are added. The Mega STE is identical to the 1040STE except for a faster 16 MHz processor with 16K cache, an onboard SCSI controller, additional faster RS232 port, VME expansion port and a gray version of the TT030 case.
