Are you looking for an Econet module or upgrade kit for a BBC B?

Econet modules are available on eBay and from CJE.

I have not seen an Econet upgrade kit for a while, I've started to put a parts list together from Beebmaster's documentation to buy the parts separately:

https://www.beebmaster.co.uk/BeebShop/Downloads/BeebMaster%20Econet%20Upgrade%20Kit%20Fitting%20Instructions%20v2-5.pdf

The 68B54 is the more interesting to obtain part, I don't know if I trust the Chinese/HK suppliers on eBay, I was planning to socket everything on the Beeb, and order from a couple of suppliers to see what was genuine as that would bring the cost down to circa £3 for the 68B54.

There have been a few Speech upgrades on eBay, or there is this option:

Retroclinic has the 68B54 - not sure how much. The rest of the parts are easy to source.

Modules are getting expensive :(

Why do I keep collecting Acorn gear? I'm going to need a considerably bigger man-cave. :?
