Well, I do enjoy Jetpac on Xbox Live Arcade, which obviously has the Speccy original, but that's about as much Spectrum stuff as I can recall playing "directly". The one thing I don't like is that a lot of the more action-oriented games were designed around the use of a keyboard, right? I have a special Kempston interface on the one 2068 for use with its built-in emulator (does the Kempston use a standard Atari joystick? - as you know the standard 2068 joystick ports are not compatible) and obviously the joystick ports on the Spectrum+, though sadly the joystick that it came with apparently has a bad fire button or something (I knew this when I purchased the bundle), and it's tough to track down a replacement since I have to look at overseas sellers. I'm still unsure of how compatible that is anyway.
As for Speccy software, I have several dozen cassette tapes, making sure to get some of the system highlights, like the classic RPG's, isometric games and platformers. I also may get a DivIDE interface at some point (for use with a compact flash card) to make it easier to boot ROMs directly on the real hardware (of course I could also do a ROM to WAV conversion and put it on a tape).
