Synthronics - Modern PSUs for classic vintage synths

Post by polysixer » Fri Jun 21, 2019 12:19 pm

Just a heads up, Andrej from Synthronics is releasing a bunch of custom replacement PSUs for classic vintage synthesizers and I have to say I'm impressed. Just installed my replacement Juno-6 PSU and on top of being smaller and lighter than the original it seems to have better groundings and isolation, as it's improved a ton of the high pitched noise and DCO leaking into the jacks board, so typical in the Juno-6 and 60. It's a switched solution but with linear regulators, with excellent measurements and low noise. It's also very nicely built, with isolators included and a lot of attention to detail, I highly recommend it.

Korg Mono/Poly PSU: https://synthronics.de/korg-monopoly-psu-replacement/

The best news is that more models are coming, with Jupiter-8 and Prophet VS PSUs dropping very soon. Andrej is also open to suggestions for what PSUs you'd prefer to see. You can contact him on Facebook directly here: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100006878447478 for requirements, suggestions and orders (don't forget to mention autoy sent you).
