I know I'm a little late regarding your question about Sakura's VIP 2000/3000.  I'm not sure if you found your answer, but if you're talking about the VIP processor that uses a magnet to program, change stations, etc. (and is reddish orange in color and may even say 'Miles' on it instead of Sakura) you will want to think twice before purchasing it.  These VIP K (series 1000, 2000, 3000) are no longer serviced by Sakura nor are there many parts for them.  Sakura's manufacturer for parts has stopped making replaceable parts for this particular model (they are at least 20 or more years old).  You can go to Sakura's website or call their technical support, they will confirm this too.

Take care,
