Yamaha DX5


via this auction

"Wiki: 'The Yamaha DX5 is a synthesizer released by Yamaha in 1985. It was similar to the Yamaha DX1 but was more affordable. The Yamaha DX5 contains two Yamaha DX7 synthesizer engines with a larger backlight LCD display, a 76-key synth-action keyboard and better output converters, with XLR output jacks.'

*Please note that there's a few issues with VSE's listing; The DX5 DOES send 127 velocity, it just requires lots of force to do so (more than a normal keyboard). This can be altered with certain MIDI boxes and only really makes a difference if you're using this as a master keyboard. Also, I'm not sure what they're talking about with it being noiser than a DX7. This is MUCH quieter than the 3 or 4 DX7s I've played AND it has 3 XLR balanced outputs."
