As someone else has advised here I traded in my DX-5 for DX-7IIFD. The FD had the floppy drive, better sound quality,lighter, etc. Worst thing I ever did. Sorry but I just loved the big beast with the extra keys. The whole layout really. That's when I finally realized constantly "upgrading" to keep up with technology is a loosers game. You have an axe you really like,keep it! Wish I still had my Minimoog too!

Herb, The DX5 I had was noisy too (back in 1987), unless you really need the 6-octave keyboard I`d dump it and get a DX7-IID or FD, still Bi-timbral and far better sounding, FAR lighter, smaller, easier to edit (although only 16-note poly) and for less than you`d get for your DX5 probably... I Did..

this is my master keyboard and i also use sounds from it although the outputs have a constant high frequency sound on them. hope i can get it sorted out someday. a very nice and powerful synth for it's time and a definite fm classic in the making.

Top machine, big, chunky and thats all really.

A huge step up from the DX-7 well worth spending the extra

This is my favorite Keyboard now and ever since I purchased it new. User hostile but if a person takes the time it can be very rewarding.
