Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Rev 3.3 W/ Midi

via this auction

"This is a fine condition Rev 3.3 thats been totally electronically restored. The unit features factory midi with midi thru (not common). It has 120 program slots with a brand new battery to retain them in memory.

As for upgrades, all ECO’s we know of have been done to this prophet so it performs as well as possible. We are lucky to have access to certain factory updates not found on the web, and those have been performed on this unit so it is as stable as possible.

The power supply has been left original however a toroidal transformer has been added in place of the original type for silent operation. The original transformer has mechanical buzz and can be a nuisance in well treated studios. Additionally, the audio noise floor is lowered by this new transformer, so it will also sound clearer than other prophets.
The transformer we use also helps the prophet run considerably cooler than others, so the unit will last longer between tuning cycles.

Regarding electronics, of course all tantalum capacitors have been replaced with high quality electrolytic. Other capacitors commonly overlooked by others have been replaced to clean up the signal path for a like new sound.

Brand new bushings are installed for a flawless action.

The Tauntek firmware has also been added. This gives better midi control over the unit, but also adds some features such as unison detune, which is awesome!

All in all, this is a fine example of a prophet 5 that will surely bring many years of joy to it’s next owner."
