Yamaha RX21L for $25...
It's almost like it's burning their hands!

I'd take it if I lived neard enough. Not worth the 6$ bus tickets and 3 hours round trip for me to get it though...

I know that it probably sounds amazing, but IMHO, it looks like c**p!

Like wine an acquired taste I think - keep looking at it till it *doesn't* look like a circus stage prop anymore, then it'll probably make more sense. :lol:

Hah, I think now I know what inspired the POLIVOKS designers when they invented those ugly comma-shaped plastic switches...

UPD: hey what about sounding like c**p?

I don't like the drums, but the drums like me!

not with a 10' pole for that price. and no power supply....... no way.

and this coming from the guy that usually champions the "it's not as bad as it looks" school of thought. :)

Yeah, shame... them, "professional" synth dealers. I've realized, for the most part, they basically don't fix/repair anything themselves, if at all; their synths are simply "thoroughly tested and accurately described". This is what you're paying through the roof for :roll:
Do you even post on vse bro?

Yep, you have to read the fine print with those kind of sellers and they expect you to ask all questions before you hand the money over. In the old days, these sellers would take time to service the items but now when they go for almost the same price as items working or in better shape, why bother?
