Christian still sells it, for about 100DM (with a 8580).

Well this design was or should have been a must; in the early '90-s a
lot of people coded on Plus/4 (both in Germany and Hungary). They were
pushing and pushing the limits (...well, they were, I guess, still not
reached); however the original sound of the computer was simply _crap.
Even one, such loosely interfaced SID (different clock, rather different
voice because of the filters and a really noticeable overdrive
distortion) was a heaven in opposition to the TED's sounds.
