I've been an avid collector of all things Corvus for over 20 years.  The 
crown jewel of my collection is a complete and functional Concept with
display, keyboard and almost every peripheral board ever manufactured. 
About 15 years back I ran into a guy at the MIT Flea Market who had a 
basement full of Corvus equipment and picked up the entire lot for free. 
For lack of storage space, I gave away a Concept, keyboard an monitor in 
the early 2000s.  At this point, I have no extras of anything.

The monitor is an oddball unit made by Ball.  It uses non-standard sync 
timing and I've never been able to find any technical information on it. 
Mine can be a bit flakey at times and I'm not sure what to do as an 
alternative.  I've fed the output to a few different converters and 
multi-sync monitors, but no joy with anything.
