Atari 825 Dot Matrix 80 Column Printer
We recently Sold Out of the New in the box Atari 825 Printers we got out of the local Sunnyvale Atari Warehouses when we cleared them out about 15+ years ago. We thought for sure they had passed into Atari History and we would never see any more! Out of the blue one day recently, we got a call from a company saying they found a small lot of New in the box Atari 825 printers in storage locker. We bought the whole lot of new Atari 825 printers and had them shipped in.
The Atari 825 printer was one of the very first 80 Column free standing printers sold for the Atari 8 bit (400 / 800 / 1200XL / 65XE / 130XE) Computers 31+ years ago. It was made for Atari by the Centronics printer company. It was close to the Centronics 837 / 839 printers but had an Atari Custom ROM OS chip and Custom Atari top cover. A bit of Centronics trivia: at one time the California Department of Motor Vehicles used Centronics printers to print out all of the driver documents and vehicles forms for years (30 years ago).

Because of our special relationship with Wizztronics (a Wizztronics authorized dealer for over 30+ years and a personal friend with Steve Cohen, the owner of Wizztronics) Steve gave us a phone call a few weeks ago. He said he was clearing out one of his many Warehouses and found a small box of New MIDIMAX interfaces (first released in 1985), which even surprised Steve. He offered them to Best and we bought all of them he had. So you now have a second chance in a lifetime to get an Atari MIDIMAX interface.
Wizztronics "MIDIMAX" MIDI Keyboard interface for the Atari 8 bit computers (with Min. 48K memory). This Real World heavy duty Metal cased MIDI Interface with SIO cable connection, plugs directly into your normal Atari 400 / 800 / 800XL / 65XE / 130XE / 1200XL 13 Pin Atari SIO connector chain and has an extra pass thru 13 pin SIO connector, so it will not end your Atari 8 bit SIO daisy chain. All you need is 2 MIDI cables, standard MIDI Keyboard, Atari 8 bit Computer with disk drive to run the supplied 5 ¼ inch Disk based MIDI Music System software and you are already to make or modify your own MIDI music! The Double sided disk based MIDI software is supplied with an assortment of MIDI sample songs to get you going right from the start.
If you are an Amateur Musician, Hobbyist or first time MIDI Keyboard user you will find you do not need to know how to play a musical MIDI keyboard. MIDI music can be composed on the Atari 8 bit computer’s alphanumeric keyboard (much like a Word processor), MIDI keyboard or loaded from existing MIDI files on disk or MIDI files on the Internet transferred to an Atari 8 bit Disk.
