via this auction, also on Reverb here.

"There are only 190 Rev 1.0 ever make, likely far fewer are operational now. Mine is like a Rev 2.0 in that it does have Cassette Interface and Patch Storage. Not all Rev 1.0 Prophet 5s have this.

Contrary to popular opinion, this synth can be upgraded MIDI using Rev 2 Kenton kit, since Rev 1.0 and Rev 2.0 Prophets are nearly identical. Mine is even more rare due to having cassette interface, not typical for a Rev 1.0.

Serviced by Greg M of Analog Synthesizer Service in Late 2017."
