"Maybe not the best cosmetically looking DPX-1 but it's a fully serviced one.

The power supply in those is badly designed, with leaking caps, unstable voltage, etc. That was all addressed and is rock solid. All other internal capacitors, including tantalum ones (known to burn) have been replaced. All capacitors are only Nichicon low ESR and Nichicon audio grade series.

The floppy emulator is installed with ~1000 of images from EMU Emulator II library. DPX-1 can load natively EII, Mirage, P2000, Akai data. When it comes to EII, it converts it to the own format which takes about a minute. This was addressed too, all EII image data is in DPX format, so, it takes no extra time for the conversion.

This is also the rare version with dedicated 8 voice outputs installed and CD-ROM interface."
