Black is available for $5 more from same seller at Amazon. $140 is a pretty typical price for this model, at least in it's, well, unlimited editions.
I remember seeing Lasonics in the basement of the local Woolworth several years ago. What I remember most about one in particular were the stickers with drawings of a VU meter and equalizer, design features that are included to some extent in this model as well. I realize that these things have a satisfied consumer demographic and nobody is making me buy one, etc., but these devices are remarkably tacky with a build quality that re-defines "hokey."
