The rarest and most synthy of beasts, the EMS Synth 100 - has come up for sale via eBay. (via Leigh Kemp)
"For sale the legendary EMS SYNTHI 100 modular in great condition and fully functional - one of the biggest and rarest synths ever built, 33 units ever built - including many original accessories and non-working parts of the ultra-rare COMPUTER SYNTHI !
The Synthi 100 was entirely serviced, finished in January.
The unit is an early one. That is, the filters are diode based (like the VCS3) and not OTA based, therefore they are by far the best sounding of the 2 "revisions".
Probably the richest, creamiest HP I have ever heard.
Says who ? says me and James Walker (http://www.synthrepairservices.com/), one of the best specialists worldwide in this matter."
