I played with one of these early on.

To load and save files from the slaves? There was just a little
third-party bit of 'repeater'
software that tried to emulate a CLOAD. Couldn't do anything other than
save, tho.

The hardware itself was just a pair of RC pairs and a single transistor
amp. Think there
was some TTL glue, but I can't see it as being terribly important.

D'ya know if they ever fixed the mid-bitstream problem that was common
early with the
Trash and later with the Atari and their MPI over cassette interface? I
had one of the
Atari setups, nice so long as you were only using it like a multi-cable
PtP setup.
