First of al this board sounds really great,if you can dont think,just buy one second hand if you can,its a very solid and build like a tank,only thing you must check is the inside 3 volt battery,if everything works fine just buy it! And sure many synths of today can more,have more RAM or ROM,etc...etc,but some sounds of this synth. are really one of a kind,this synth. can have always a place in your setup. about 25 years ago i could not effort this synth.when it was new in music store,it price was 4695 Gulden(plus/minus 2225 Euro)so i bought a new Elka Synthex for 2000 Gulden(800 Euro)and now i have them both! My DX7 costed me 200 euro secondhand! And comparing the Synthex with the DX7 is stupid and unfair,both are so different but have 1 thing in common:Great sounds,High quality,build like a tank and popular,even today!

The dx7 is an old treasure that's likely to be unappealing to those that have mainly been exposed to the powerful dream boards of today. Why do I love it? Because I experienced the history in the making of this legendary board. I was 12 years old at the time and very interested in synthesizers. My first experience was the Roland Juno 60 and then all these synths started coming out like Juno 1and 2 and the JX8P and ESQ 1, Oberheim matrix 6 etc. but the one that shined above and beyond all the rest was the dx7. I personally believe the Rhodes sound was the most influential factor in setting it apart from the rest. That sound has something just magical about it. When I finally attained a DX7IID I just used it mainly for Rhodes sounds. Till this day I have not experienced any board that matches it. This is for those in the know

If I were to be locked up for the rest of my life but were given the choice of having only one keyboard which contained only one working sound which I could play, that keyboard would be the Yamaha dx7II and that sound would be "FULLTINES"

DX7s, purchased on Ebay two weeks ago, I immediately discovered the ease of playing the keys and the sound. I'm not a pianist, but a drummer. But I"ve been playing piano by ear since I was 5, and recognize the DX7s keys very comfortable feel, each key has rounded edges, not so the Roland RD600, my other piano, also great in terms of sound. I'm not a programmer, but I would like to know how to get a nice rich Hammond sound on the DX7s, at present it has'nt got one. Or somewhere I can buy a cartridge with it on.

Thanks in advance

I'm 36 years old. I remember the first time the dx7 came out back in 82 I believe. To this day no synth comes close to matching that sweet sounding crystal metallic edgy patch called rhodes or fulltines on the 2nd gen dx. Of course we now have lush sounding layered pads that have a fuller sound spectrum such as those found on keyboards like the Triton, but I challenge anyone to listen to the raw sounding dx7 fulltines with no effects gimmicks masking the sound and tell me that sound doesn't blow you away. The sound shines when played in a funky or jazzy gospel style. I'm ready for the altar call again. Nothing comes close and I'm sorry I let my DX7IID go. I am searching one out again if I can find it in mint condition.
