i love this synth i got it for 300 (used obviously) it had some small bugs and i stll have trouble with it every once in a while but it has a greta sound . not the kind that makes creamy chords but the kind that makes phat evil lead sounds and string pads it also makes cool noises ( r2 d2) i own a juno 106 they are both great for different purposes i highly recommend buying one if u can find it ( its an italian company) and i think its out of business so youre taking a risk buying it but its worth it. oh yeah one more thing run it through a phaser it sounds bad as hell

The Seil DK-600 is an updated version of of the Opera 6. It's a 6 voice, 12 oscillator synth, I'm pretty sure it had DCOs, and not VCO's like the Opera 6 Mk1. 24dB Filters, PWM, ADSRs for VCF &amp; VCA. 2LFOs with minimal routing possibilities. Velocity sensitive, MIDI, multiple channels, although minimal implementation. VCF and VCA inputs (5pin DIN). Manufactured btw 84-85. Originally sold for $1495, now they go for between $250 to $400. A good synth for the money!

Corley, the only synth you`ll find that`ll better an OB-Xa is a MemoryMoog and only then if you actually manage to find a working one. The DK600 is a respectable machine for the price, if poss go for the earliest revision of Opera-6 (the DK`s predecessor), easily recognisable by it`s OB-Xa-esqe pinstriping and only one performance wheel. This machine has VCOs and might well combat the thinness you find. The DK600 gets a 3, the Opera 6 Mk1 a 4, the Xa around 25 odd and a working and guaranteed MemoryMoog - 43 (:-)

Pretty cool sounding synth....decent architecture, SSM 2024 filters, midi.

Has variable noise (not just on/off), which is cool. Somewhat velocity-

sensitive, although it's not adjustable (just on/off). Midi is somewhat

archaic, manual doesn't tell how to set the midi channel and no bulk dumps

(although patch dumps can be done remotely). All knobs...give it +1 for that Kind of thin, great sounding filters, I give it a 4, where a casiotone is

1, and the mighty ob-xa a 5 (the best synth I've gotten to play with..

i'm sure there are better)...

I also own a quirky DK600 and expander. I stll love the soft pad sounds you can get with it, and on a really good day it stays coherent for more than just 3 hours. Its still a cool synth, and its great when writing with heavy loops.
