I'll make the images tonight ... hopefully the disks can still be read.

If Sinix uses the mmu that could be a problem as there doesn't appear to be any docs (other than it's existence in the manual on page 1) about it.

Is the MMU a single chip? Off the shelf? or custom ASIC?

Do you have a KryoFlux or similar device? Full flux-level dumps of these disks would be great!

Stiletto: No clue, the doc (AFAICT as it's in German) only shows the header on the mainboard where the mmu plugs in. It's a pin header so presumably it's a board not just a chip.

Looks like the PC-X's characteristics were that they always came with the MMU, 1MB RAM and a harddisk. I haven't found out yet what type the MMU is.

Here are the images of the first two boxes and Teledisk files. I will attempt a Kryoflux dump later - what's the preferred format? Stream for preservation?

Yes, Stream format (one file for each track) is good since everything else can be re-created from these.
