I bought this synth two weeks ago for £20 in my local cash generator and I have to say, its the best bargain ever. I read somewhere that Broadcast and LFO both use this machine. Ok its not got the real sqelchyness of a moog (moog shmoog anyway I dont have £2000 for that jazz)but its lovely and warm and spacey and would make great kids tv theme tunes if they still made the klangers. Its easy as hell to use and I would not sell it for ten times the ammount I got it for. KACHING! cammy from scotland

Recently bought a jen sx,like the basic but firm sound,it is not a moog,but it shure knows how to grab your attention.quality of certain parts is bad(potentiometers,knobs)but it just does not matter,it can be repaired fairly simply also,but you are in trouble if the main chip,housing the oscillator,gets faulty,hard to get a new one.Payed 400 euros,a lot of money,but I expect they will become quite rare in the next few years.

I bought one of these on the strength of Sonic State reviews. I've had it modified to include an updated chip and midi in. Using a keyboard with pitch and mod wheels adds a new dimension to a fairly basic but versatile synth. The sounds you can get are amazing and even more interesting and unusual with mod wheels. I have the original manual and overlays but I didn't buy a synth to make poor imitations of stringed or wind instruments. You don't really need the manual and the reprints on ebay are a waste of money for what you get. The overlays also are not worth worrying about. The Jen is a good way of getting into analogue sounds and the front panel is so easy to use when modifying sounds. So what if there are no presets or easy way of saving sound settings? Experimenting is what this synth is good for and it's easy to design yourself a simple chart to note the settings. Buy one, you know you want to.

A great little synth for the money. I was originally looking to find a replacement for a Moog Prodigy I had 20+ years ago and found the Jen. The front panel is easy to use. I have all the original white overlays. Several have example settings and there is a blank template for user settings. E-mail if you are interested in copies.
