This synth is a true classic and will always be one. The SH5 is hard to find but worth searching for.

Picked one up today (A$1300 alot for maybe a 28 yr old machine). wanted one of these (or a system 100) for a while now. Stays in tune after 20 to 30 minutes (it's warm here though).

Listening to a friends recording of his system 100 as i wait for it to tune, they are very similar (the sequencer makes it appear to be different though).

I have a couple of other mono analogues ( ms20, pro-one, atc-1 and pulse) it's better than all of them for raw sound in my opinion. Admittedly the ms20 may have the modulation abilities and reliability (my sh-5 is in good condition) but i'm inept at programming so i prefer the sh-5 interface and instantly get weirder more interesting sounds.

Makes me want something of it's ilk with more expandibility.

Thats a complement.

The SH 5 is a strong monophonic synth. With the right effects to beef up the admitted somewhat synthetic sounding japanese components this is a real killer. Use it`s external input to run things through the bandpass- and lowpassfilters. Add guitarlike dirt to your sampled guitar in that way. Also use it`s syncronic feature adding a little envelope-attack to the slave oscillator, thus making an abrupt change to the tonecolour.It does not have the fatness of a Moog, but it is more versatile than most Moogs... 4 out of 5 for versatility, 3 out of 5 for it`s somewhat sterile sound, that sums up to 3 and a half.
