He offers everything from the $15 bare board up.  Next step up is doing 
the surface mount chips for you at $3.50, etc.

I'd do the bare board.  I can attest that the mfm emulator will work.  
I've not one the SA-1000 might have to work with him to do it 
yourself.   I recall he offered a kit option on that, and I had him 
build it up.
