Santa could be bringing you a Prophet 5

Postby a.d.a.m. baby » Mon Dec 03, 2018 2:31 pm

Just an early heads up for T rockers. There is a P5 rev 3.3 (upgraded 3.2, no midi) in excellent condition and fully functional, coming up for sale. Viewing and local pick up Gold Coast. Not mine, but I've been babysitting it for a friend living OS for many years now. Over these years, I've replaced the bushings, and had to replace some OTA chips, and the Burr Brown DAC. I've had her open more recently to clean the bus bar and J wires, and just replaced the tantalums caps on the PSU. (The PSU is otherwise the original post 3.1 supply).
You may be aware, this synth is full of CA3280 OTA chips, which were until recently getting hard to find. Happily, Alpha are making these again, along with the Curtis chips, so hopefully these old beasts will continue to live on!

The owner is looking for $7000.00 o.n.o
Photos and videos coming soon.

Sorry, owner tells me this is
"early version, factory rev 3.3 (120 programs, IEC connector but no midi)"

although I did note the CPU PCB has the "3.2" printed on it.

Quite a few 3.2's were upgraded to 3.3 specification.
