Its a great music computer, the first one available for someone like me (The Fairlight was much too expensive). The CX5M II brought me to the land of MIDI and - its still in use although many things have changed. The Computer platform on MSX is not state of the art nowadays but whats still remarkabble is the sound of the in-built synthesizer which is not to compare with other former computer sounds like on Amiga or C64 platforms.

Comments About the Sounds:
very clear, they sound just like the DX100 sounds
