Yamaha wisely designed the DX7 II series so that voices produced on the original DX7 were 100 . The upgrade to 16-bit digital-to-analog converters helped to solve one of the original DX7's shortcomings: noisy output.

Yamaha wisely designed the DX7 II series so that voices produced on the original DX7 were 100% compatible with the new "II" models, which allowed users to immediately experience improved sound quality from existing DX7 patches via the increased resolution and fidelity of the new 16-bit system.

Yamaha wasn't the first synth maker but after the monsterous and heavywight CS80 the DX7 was a little revolution in sound (FM synthesis and much more realistic sounds) and sold very very well, later innovations like physical modeling did not even hit the sales of later FM synths like the SY99 or FS1R.

The package was well protected, the condition of the keyboard is great. I even got a transformator/adapter along with it which I'm really happy about. I'm really happy with the product. Thank you! :)
Great product
What does "Hard Habit To Break"(Chicago), "The Finer Things"(Steve Winwood), "One More Night"(Phil Collins), "Another Part Of Me" (Michael Jackson), "People Are People"(Depeche Mode), "Control" (Janet Jackson), and Miami Vice (Jan Hammer) have in common? You guessed it...the Yamaha DX7. Not to mention that the list would be a thousand pages long to mention each song and artists that have used the DX7. It came into existence in 1983 and lived well into the late 80's with a reincarnated DX7 II. If the studios did not have this keyboard at the time you know they were not serious. In my opinion it was the most popular synth in the music industry, and is one of the bes,t or the best selling synths of all time period. This was the age of futurism. Analog synths were becoming passe, and very few people saw the resurrection of the analog. Yamaha DX7 was to blame for the analog pessimism. Digital became the fashion, and still is to this day with software synths. I have played an original DX7, a DX27, and a DX7II-FD for quite few gigs, and can attest the positive and the negative. The negative for is the technology. FM Synthesis. The sounds are not analog, neither sampled. it corners it self. A little screen, plus/minus buttons, and a Data slider are the tools used to program a sound. I have edited and programmed sounds to couple of sounds and it is not user friendly. That is why the 32 preset(Bank A, B) made sense to punch a green membrane and play and leave it as it is. I think that was the huge selling point to this synth. Where before you had to turn LFO Filter knobs to create a sound. The DX& became the father to all keyboards today. Select a Bank, a sound and just play. In that sense the DX7 is user friendly. To this day I have not met a person that completely knows how to operate that machine in it's full capabilities. Some famous patches are the famous electric pianos you hear in ballads, the bass patch that had a famous metallic attack quality to it, the harmonica that was used for solos, and the list goes on. The board does not have built in effects, so I would suggest fx unit of any sort to thicken and liven up the digital sound that sometimes have a cold presence to it. If somebody had the ability to program certain sounds you would come up with unique sounds that lives only in a DX7. 16 note polyphony. 32 Algorithms, and the negative thing is the DX7 has 12 bit sound(DX7 II had 16bit). A bit of white noise for my taste, but it's a classic. It's not a keyboard that I would suggest you buy to go and gig into today standards, unless you are specify in knowing what you are going to do. We have come light years away since 1983. The feel of the keys are good for my taste for a controller. It's a nostalgic piece, but can be brought to greater level with a Grey Matter Response E! card. That is the secret. It can add an 8-part multitimbrality and sequencing functions like a workstation. Not to mention in my DX7 II-FD it can add 64 more sounds to the 64 already existing stock sounds. Another small thing to mention to you buyers. If you do decide to buy a DX7II over the original one there are some pros and cons to it. The DX7II have more ambient sounds than usable sounds of the original DX7. So you probably have to youtube some demos to hear what you like, and eventually download desirable sounds from the net. The DX7II is more present and a better quality sounding synth sonically. I hope this review will inspire someone to do great things with the DX7, and I will be on the frontline supporting you, cause Analog might be in a retro kick right now, but will see it's day in the coffin once again, cause history repeats itself.
Back in the day the Fender Rhodes electric piano was THE iconic sound for stage pianos, but then Yamaha comes in with their DX7 and steals the thunder away from Rhodes with its own flavor of electric piano sound. Still the best electric piano sound today. Still want one!
No words need be said about this thing, just go listen to Murderous by Nitzer Ebb.
