Is it wise to buy a faulty OP-1?

Hey all, recently there’s a listing for an OP-1 where the seller says that the there was a issue with the sound card that’s why mic was not working.

I already saw that teenage engineering partnered with ifixit for the spare parts and I’m ok to fixing it by myself. Do you think it would be a wise move to buy a faulty OP-1?

I mean is that “sound card” issue a common thing?


depends on the price and how much u believe what they say the issue is to be true
like there are no other issues and that swapping the board will fix it.

also, the connector board is usually not in stock at ifixit. so i would check to make sure u can actually purchase one as well.

its a gamble either way, if the price is right maybe worth the hassle
