I bought a DX off ebay about a month ago. The sounds are nice and it's so easy to program. I'm very happy with this DX.

I have two DX machines. One is nearly mint the other is a spare used for parts. I bought it with the Stretch module, and it worked for a month, and then crashed on stage last May. I took it to a tech and they couldn't get it working. VERY SAD. I tried to put stretch on the working DX, but didn't work...HELP!!!!!

If anyone has info on the stretch (ie, Specs)...I'd love to get it...maybe trade for some 808 eproms for your DX???

I had one a loooooong time ago. I used to compose some of my tracks for compositions and for my stage show. I paid $1000 for this thing. It had no MIDI and yet MIDI was just getting underway. (the salesman neglected to tell this youth with money in hand). Boy did I feel burned a little later when the new drum machines started coming out with midi! It was useless in my soon to be MIDI studio setup. I could only use it to track to tape or to sync to tape. It was terribly noisy (60 cycle hum?) on tape too. I was happy to part with it and haven't missed the dated sounds since. Look I guess it was sharp for it's time (for a very short time) but unless your successfully tweaking it for freaky hip or hipity hop or whatever... it's just ordinary. I don't miss my Smallstone Phaser either. Both were basic noisy tin cans with buttons. Unless your into retro for reto's sake ... but noiw you can pick up this big box for cheap... so if you have a few spare ... well, why not. I'm still feeling the burn of that thousand. I shouldn't blame Oberheim (though I did for a while) as much as the con salesman who might have told me that in a few months a whole new world would open up that the DX would not be a part of.

I've got a stretch DXa with Midi, man this thing kicks, the BD is real nice and punchy, the clap is sooo electro sounding , the snare is fat fat fat, the hats have more bite than 909 hats, in fact there's not a bad sound on the machine. If you can find one snap it up quick, as these are getting increasingly hard to find. Oh and because the DX does'nt have the fame of the DMX you can normally find them a bit cheaper, which is weird cos the DX is much better due to the fact it has a wider tuning range, it doesnt use voice cards (easily available chips) so you can make your own samlpes in it (with an Eprom programmer), and most of them have Midi! New Order knew the score!
