Synergy DK1 Synthesizer GDS w/ Custom Cool Red & Blue Capped Knobs

via this auction

"This fine specimen is in full working order. No aftermarket modifications (besides the knobs which were lost), the original fan is still in place. I opted to put a quieter one in my MKII. Few demos exist of this early FM synth but with some youtube searching you can find some terrible ones mostly.

Its alright cosmetically with no major breaks or problems. Yes there are dings to the corners and nicks on the surface but no more than to be expected for this type of age. I plan to list more photos tonight.

I have restored 3 of them and this is a mark 1. I have a mark 2 that offers the Kaypro II connectivity and I do not have a need for the mark 1 so with reluctance I am taking offers. There is an aftermarket kit available that lets you make a mark 1 a mark 2 but I didn't want to go down that road at this point.

Besides, its rarity and place in musical FM history are undeniable."
