I stumbled over this site when I saw that the WoC show was back and running again.
As it happens, I still have some Amiga odds and sods around.

But the real treasure is this:
Idek Iiyama Vision Master 17 (MF-8617)
This is a fairly popular monitor for use with the Amiga, since it is a high quality 17-inch monitor that can sync down to about 23.5 kHz, and therefore works with most (all?) AGA "double" screenmodes. All presets and controls are digital, set through three front-panel buttons and an LCD display. The image can easily be expanded to fill the screen in all modes. (See Boards/A2320 'Amber' Reference for information on the A2320 'Amber' board that may be used with this monitor.)
Sync Frequency: 23.5 kHz to 86.0 kHz Horizontal
50 Hz to 120 Hz Vertical
Resolution: Maximum 1280 x 1024 at 80 Hz
Input Connectors: Five BNC connectors and one DB15 (not high density)
(A cable is included to connect a HDD15 VGA-type
connector to the DB15 connector on the monitor.)
This thing was hooked up to my Amiga 4000 both with and without an aftermarket video card. If memory serves, it would automatically sync to whatever video mode the machine would put out. This made it a one-stop solution to Amiga display, and unusually for the time, it was a 17" when everything else was 14" or smaller. It was great for PageStream etc back in the day.
I kept it when I sold off my Amigas because I was using it as a dedicated display for a Dreamcast... I had visions of using it to build an arcade cabinet... but that never happened. It has been sitting in storage since the late 1990s.
I *think* it works and still has the required cables and adapters.
I'm in Windsor for the holidays but if there is interest in this part I'll drag it out and test it, at least with a VGA signal, to see if it still functions. If it does, I have no problems throwing it in the car and bringing it back to TO.
If you are interested, make an offer, conditional, of course, on it working. (Clearly I won't hold anybody to anything if it doesn't work)
If I find any other Amiga stuff I'll put that up for sale here.
