Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Rev 2 SN 0630

via this auction

"I bought this Prophet 5 in Venice from a music producer 6 years ago. It's the rare Rev2 version. It has a stronger and warmer sound compared to the later versions, but more instable.

The Power supply is a little bit noisy and the synth needs to be turned on for 15 minutes and a few autotunes to stabilize. But all these things are normal for this version. The sound has its charm and character, the SSM gives the sound a distinctive power. Mine has just been recently serviced. An SSM 2020, a few SSM30, an I3292 (electronic switch), TL084 (operational) have been replaced with original components. Ideally necessary a recalibration of the ADC and DAC from a good tech to have a perfect instrument."
