Yamaha DX-1 Synthesizer SN 1086

via this auction

"The Yamaha DX1 is the top-level member of Yamaha's prolific DX series of FM synthesizers. It features two sets of the same synthesizer chip set used in the DX7, allowing either double the polyphony, split of two voices, or dual (layered) instrument voices. In addition, it contains twice the amount of voice memory as the DX7. It has an independent voice bank for each of two synth channels (engines). Each of 64 performance combinations can be assigned a single voice number, or a combination of two voice numbers - one from channel A and one from channel B.

It includes a handmade Brazilian rosewood case, a 73-key weighted wooden keyboard with polyphonic after touch, comprehensive backlit LCD displays for instrument programming, and solid push-buttons as opposed to the membrane buttons on the DX7. Only 140 were produced.

This one is tested and working and will come with a nice anvil case to protect it. Sound Cartridges and music stand are included."
