ZX Spectrum +2 128k black in good condition and Bruce Lee game
The ZX Spectrum +2 was Amstrad's first Spectrum computer, shortly after the purchase of the Spectrum range and the 'Sinclair' brand in 1986.
The machine featured a completely new gray case with a spring-loaded keyboard, two joystick ports, and a frame-on a recorder called the Datacorder (like the Amstrad CPC 464), but it was mostly identical to the ZX Spectrum 128.
The main menu screen lacked the Spectrum 128 "Tape Test" option, and the ROM was changed to the account for a new Amstrad copyright message from 1986. These changes resulted in minor incompatibility issues with software that accessed ROM routines in certain directions.
The ZX Spectrum + 2A was a variant of the Spectrum +3, also released in 1987, and housed inside a black case.
The Spectrum + 2A / + 3 motherboard (part number AMSTRAD Z70830) was designed so that it could be assembled without the floppy controller or associated logic and a +2 style "data recorder" attached.
Amstrad originally planned to introduce an additional disk interface for the + 2A / + 2B called AMSTRAD SI-1, but it never appeared. If an external disk drive was added, the "+ 2A" in the system operating system menu would change to +3.
The ZX Spectrum + 2A's power supply used the same pinout as the +3. The power supply purchased with + 2A / B had "Sinclair +2" written on it.
