Thank you very much for your effort and answer. I have already contacted orihalcon via DT but he has not responded yet. I just thought that somebody at DT has a spare converter and is willing to sell it to me. So long I will wait ; ) but I am very excited to try out this keyboard in particular if it...

So finally I can tell you something about my Durgod Taurus K320. To be honest, there is a little story behind it ;) I have contacted Durgod by E-Mail in January this year and was asking for an option of a K320 with Cherry MX Clear switches.

We were able to follow the suggestion to swap the rubber domes of the affected arrow keys with some domes from keys I do not use that often. It was the only solution to the problem of the strange s...

IIRC I was told that the flaw with the askew key was a side effect of Topre's plunger design and there wasn't much they could do about it, he even showed me a picture of his own Realforce that had a similar issue (although admittedly, mine was worse).

Does there any shop in Tokyo exist which sells used Topre boards or of any other brand? I am thinking of keyboards which have been returned or which have some optical drawbacks. Some...
