DeepSpace Technologies (http://www.deepspacetech.com/Nexthardware.html) seems
to be the best place to by used NeXT equipment, although there is also
Dancing Bear (http://www.dancingbear.com).  Here are some DeepSpace prices:

NeXT Black Hardware INVENTORY and PRICING as of December 4, 1996

NeXT Stations MONO
_____________________________________QUANTITY_________PRICE EA.
25mhz,  8mb RAM , (SLAB ONLY)          18            $  195.00
25mhz,  8mb RAM , 105 or 200 HD        14            $  270.00
25mhz, 16mb RAM , 105 or 200 HD         2            $  370.00
25mhz, 32mb RAM , 105 or 200 HD         0            $  470.00

Price includes the following:
Station, MegaPixel 17" Mono Monitor, Keyboard, Mouse, Monitor cable, Power
cords, NeXT Release 3.0 or better.

The idea is that you install a 1 Gig harddrive in a machine (APS at $250) and
load the system in from a CD-ROM. You need to find or purchase a system CD.
NS 3.2 is good enough for all the sound-related programs I've seen. The other
way is to buy a 1 Gig external drive (APS at $350) and use BuildDisk from the
internal drive to format the external drive. (or tar all of the files over.)
Then you can move the external drive internally, if you want. Etc.
