Oberheim OB-Xa Analog Synthesizer

via this auction

"This has had a rebuilt power supply, new key bushings, polished key contacts, and the voice cards had fresh capacitors and tuning calibration pots installed. Auto tune passes all voices and it's tuning is stable.The power supply is rebuild more robust than stock so you can operate the synth safely and cooler over a long duration. It's voices are panned so that every other one comes out of each side for a stereo panning fun which can be changed via trimpots on the voice card boards. That being said, the OBXA is a special type of synth that needs the right owner. One who is not a stranger to vintage synths and their insides. You'll probably need to get inside every now and then for some tweaking as the seasons change or when you move the synth around so if you're afraid of the inside of vintage synths, the OBXa is just not your synth and I recommend you try the new ob6."
