"Up for sale is super rare RD SONIC Electronic Piano 801 / EP801 vintage analog electronic piano made in Japan by Hillwood.
The unit appears to be working reasonably well, I noticed 1C# and 4C# keys not responding with 2C# key having slightly bad contacts, but otherwise all the presets sounds and rhythm patterns play fine as I gave it a test. I have not tested the MIC input as I don't have a microphone to test with"
