“This synthesiser is basically in good working order but there are a couple of keys not working properly, they have to be pressed harder to make the note sound. I’m sure it’s just a matter of giving it a bit of a clean. In addition a couple of the sliders are missing. I’m listing it as spares or repair and it is sold as seen,” Link
” Yamaha CS15D in excellent condition Guaranteed.All functions have been tested.All keys,sliders,buttons,switches,knobs and wheels work properly.Has been kept in a protective case(not included) for years.” Link
“In very very good condition.

“In very very good condition.
Very small scratch on the wood if you look carefully.” Link
The unit appears to be working fine, all the keys and sliders and buttons worked well as I tested. There is a bit of scratch noise on some of the knobs which could do with adjustment/servicing if required.
Cosmetically the unit is in nice condition as you can see. There are some wear and marks here and there, with a light scuff on one of the wooden side as shown, but nothing major. I’m including plenty of pictures so you can see exactly how it looks on the outside.
Comes in Original Yamaha Hard Case as shown.
Power cable included.” Link
“Der Synthesizer ist altersbedingt in einem sehr guten Zustand und funktioniert ohne Probleme. Er verfügt über das “berühmte” Yamaha CS-Filter, welches bei manchen Presets als Bandpass arbeitet. Ein Sound kann über Regler eingestellt und verändert werden, sowie 29 Presets über Schalter abgerufen werden. Der Synth ist dabei zweikanalig, mit jeweils mit einer kompletten Klangerzeugung (VCO – VCF – VCA) ausgelegt. Diese beiden unterschiedlich Sounds liegen bei Bedarf auch an einzelnen Ausgängen an. Das Ding kann dann unglaublich Stereo klingen. Auch bei den Presetsounds können nachträglich Filter und Release angepasst werden. ” Link
” This is a partially preset, partially variable monophonic analogue synth which was released in 1979. It was part of a synthesizer range that included the CS-20m, the CS-40m, and the CS-70m. It has a very solid warm sound for a single VCO synth. The preset section is divided into two channels. Channel 1 has 15 sounds with the usual array of unrealistic instrument imitations and Channel 2 has 14 synth sounds plus a button to activate the ‘manual’ section of the synth. There is a slider to mix between the two channels and channel 2 can be detuned.”

“Excellent working condition and very good+ cosmetic condition.” Link
This is a vintage item and rear.
It works AC 100 V-110V
If you need transformer, please ask me.” Link
One know issue: The bad news first. A few years ago the Brilliance Slider stopped working and i’ve never bothered to have it repaired. This slider does make a difference to the present sounds but I generally use it with the manual mode.
Otherwise all switches sliders and controls are present and working. It also comes with the original owners manual and sales receipt.
Condition is very good with no major marks of scratches etc. but please consider this is over 30 years old.” Link
Hence “needs attention” and low starting price. With a little bit of work this can again be an excellent vintage analogue synth” Link
“A rare opportunity to acquire a vintage Yamaha CS15D keyboard synthesiser complete with carrying box and manual. I am no expert with these items…all I can say is that it works and as far as I could ascertain just about every combination of knob and switch produced a sound! The item is in very good external condition. The box may be a custom made item but has a latched lid and carrying handle and does what you would expect a carrying box to do ie protect the keyboard and allow transport. there is a section which may be intended for cables.” Link
” Dual Chanel Vintage Synthesizer, extrem warmer Klang. leichter Wackelkontakt am Netzanschluß, müßte gelötet werden,

This is a monophonic analog synth that uses presets and a manual VCO.
It has dual channels with channel 1 composed of presets and channel 2 of presets and an adjustable manual sound. The sounds from these 2 channels can be mixed together.
There is a line output on/off switch. Pitch, volume, channel 2 detune, sustain, octave wheel, modulation wheel with speed control which can be applied to VCO, VCF or VCA with function settings altering modulation variation.
The manual adjustable synth is a VCO that can be mixed between saw tooth and square waves, the pulse width of the square wave is adjustable or noise can be mixed in. There are cut off frequency and resonance adjusters and EG depth adjuster to which an ADSR envelope can be applied. There is also a a VCA ADSR envelope.
The synth is mains powered at 240V. There is a headphone socket as well as 2 line outs. If line out 2/mix is used then the output contains sounds from channel 1 and 2. If leads are plugged into line out 1 and line out 2 then channel 1 sound will be output on line out 1 and channel 2 on line out 2. There are also trigger and control volt sockets on the back but I don’t have the equipment to test if these work.
The synth only partially works. All the keyboard keys work and the manual synth parts work fully but some of the preset voices are quiet or do not produce a sound. The Presets that are full volume are on Channel 1 (Clav, Harpsichord, Cosmic 2) & Channel 2 (String 2, Percussive 2 & 3, Cosmic 3, Manual). The power on LED comes on intermittently but this does not affect the synth powering up.
The synth is in good condition for its age with some marks, dents and scuffing on the edges of the wood end and front panels and scratches to the wooden underside. On the left side wooden panel upperside there are 2 raised areas where something appears to have come up from beneath, possibly a screw? There are some marks on the preset keys and some of the knobs (5) have some of the top edges sliced off. The portamento and brilliance sliders do not have their knobs.” Link

” Hi. Up for auction is a vintage, fully functioning Yamaha CS15D dual channel analog monophonic synthesizer with its original case. As far as I know, this model was only sold in Japan (hence the 100v. power supply).Please correct me if I’m wrong about this.” eBay Link
Wonderful, underrated synth! It’s a semi-preset, which turns most people off, but great for straightforward 70s synth sounds, has a superb modulation/ expression section to breath life into your playing, & even features a mini synth section that fits in a variable waveform VCO & separate envelopes for filter & VCA.
Genuinely dual-channel too, there are separate CV/ Gate connections on the back for each channel, so you can trigger one from a sequencer whilst playing the other, for example. Synth section features all the same chips & tech as the rest of the CS range, the preset sounds are hardwired resistor networks, giving this a full-bodied & very warm sound.
Mod section features multi-waveform LFO to add tremolo, vibrato & wah effects, very intuative & extremely useable effects. In excellent condition, all knobs & switches original, working & intact, some slight cosmetic wear, but great conditon for a 30 year old synth. The one thing not working 100% on here: the pitch bend wheel, it raises pitch slightly when pushed up, though not as much as it should & doesn’t drop pitch when shifted from the centre position. ” Auction ended.
