BIN for $1600 more than a recent Wine Country restored Prophet 10 (which was $5000). Seller says "don't worry about the cost". It is the nicest P5 Wine Country has seen in ages. Bargain at $6595! This one is gonna sell, I can feel it!

$250 (+ $10 for shipping) for a Poly 61 voice board? How high do you have to be to think this is acceptable?

I try not to throw rarer gear in this section, but c'mon.
Think the last one of these to come up went for under half of this?

I think this is a new record.

Maybe two records, since with the discount you could buy an Alesis Andromeda and a Minimoog Voyager XL.

Nymph, in thy orisons be all my synths remembered.

not to mention they are notorious for having deep problems that keep coming back, only 1 guy fixes them, his wait list to have them serviced is years long etc etc. I know 2 owners who are really frustrated with this piece.
