what do you guys think about this, i have some basic repair skills and could go though the board with a multimeter testing for correct resistances, there are some videos in the listing showing the synths condition. there is already 1 bid... rev 2!!

certainly fixable. if it stays at this price, get it if u want it real bad, and if u can be your own tech.


it might be eeprom seating problem with memory, multiplexers for panel... i doubt the chips have died. its sounds more like a global problem (and those are more easily and cheaply addressable).


bottom line, imo nothing else out there sound quite like it. SSM at its best. if i shat money, id get anotehr one for parts or whatever. a whito rhino indeed.
