“This Akai AX80 synthesizer is in good condition. There is moderate wear on one of the front corners, and one of the keys on the keyboard was broken, then glued back into place (works fine). Otherwise normal wear for a 35 year old keyboard.

The akai works great, and all the led light are working and intact! I’ve noticed that if I haven’t turned it on in a while, it tends to have a “warm up” period, where it fades in an out (volume) until it has been on for a bit.”

“For your consideration I have a ultra rare AKAI VX-90 rack. It sounds amazing and is 100% functional. It comes from a clean smoke free home. It comes with the original rack ears and hardware. This is a VCO synth with a lot of cool features. All of the waves have pulse width. You can stack half or all of the voices in unison and then detune them for a super fat sound. Its really easy to edit from the front panel. It also has an input to process external audio form AKAI samplers. The only thing worth mentioning it that the power cord has been shortened to fit in a rack, it does not affect the synth whatsoever.” Link

“It’s both cosmetically and functionally excellent. There are no dents or dings in the metal chassis. The paint, print, and logos are still intact and glossy. The end cheeks also have a nice glossy finish. The membrane buttons all work. There are no tears or rips in the membrane. All other knobs and controls work as intended. None of the keys are chipped/broken/repaired and they all trigger notes correctly. Yes, there are scuffs and marks on the end cheeks, some light wear marks here and there, and a few very light scratches on the plastic display panel. The latter can likely be completely buffed out using plastic polish, if you desire. ” Link

“Fantastic condition Akai Ax-60, all sliders and buttons are fully functional with virtually no scratchiness. I have owned this synth for probably about 15 years, and have taken great care of it – it basically looks brand new except for one ding that I literally just noticed on the right hand end cheek. I have no more room and it just does not get enough use, so it must go. ” Link

“For your consideration I have a used AKAI VX-600 analog synthesizer. It’s 100% functional and sounds amazing. I don’t think any synth manufacture today is building them like this anymore. The VX-600 is a polyphonic analog VCO matrix synthesizer just like the Oberheim Xpander. It has 6 individual outputs for each voice and the keyboard has velocity and aftertouch! All of its components are through hole discrete. This synth is built like a tank and it is portable. I popped the hood to show the condition of the components. I also took out one of the beautiful voice cards to show off the CEMs. A lot of people like to bash this synth online but most of them didn’t get past the presets, this synthesizer needs to be tweaked to bring out the best. Honestly if it was really that bad you would see them for sale everywhere. Even the old great mono synths get drifty after playing them for a while, thats just how vintage VCO synths are. Even my guitar needs tuning after shredding lol. This VX-600 still has all of its presets, most of them are okay but there are a couple really good string pads and unison bass patches that sound amazing.” Link

“Up for sale is an Akai AX-80 synth. It’s a beautiful, thick sounding synth that may be just what you’re looking for!

These synths are known for the poorly designed circuit board connectors that are practically guaranteed to break after years of use. This synth was professionally modified by Control System Labs Inc in Buffalo, NY with ribbon connections and all edit functions and membranes are working (see images / video demo).

The synth has some dents (see pictures) due to its age and one key is cracked but plays fine. The volume is a little fuzzy when adjusting, but once you’re set its just fine.” Link

Also has a hair line crack in one of the keys but it is hardly noticeable. Please see all close up pictures for full details of the unit. Thanks for looking! ” Link

“Akai AX-80 in really excellent condition, and working perfectly. All buttons are very responsive, screen is working flawlessly. This is the glossy wooden side version, which is apparently the older one. You can see from the pictures what kind of shape this is in – only minor nicks around the sides and a few scuffs. The data knob and other parts look brand new! I’m pretty sure I was the second owner and the last owner clearly had it in storage for years. Still has the inspection sticker on it! Definitely one of the coolest looking synthesizers with the fluorescent bar graphs!” Link

“Akai AX80 in working condition. There is one dead key, it is marked with the blue tape in the photos. That dead key does respond to midi. There are surface scratches and cosmetic issues, but all membrane buttons, and knobs, and dials, and wheels all work fine. It will be shipped in a HYBRID brand case.” Link

“Selling Vintage AKAI AX80. True Analog poly synthesizer with 8 voice. Released in 1984. Synth comes with built in power cord to unit. Fully functional but including a disclaimer. It is a known thing with this synth that solder pins on board for the membrane buttons do get broke during transportation. I have had this happen to me before upon moving. This is an easy fix and I have performed this before once with no problem. Just one of those quirks on this vintage piece.”

akaiax80 “If you’re looking at this auction, you probably have some idea of how awesome the AX-80 sounds. If not, check out youtube for demos. This is an analog 8 voice polyphonic synth from 1984. It has midi but being an older synth doesn’t have the midi capability of newer synths. This synth is in 100% working condition. All keys, leds, membranes, midi, and inputs/outputs work as they should. The keyboard has cosmetic blemishes that came with the synth when I purchased it in 2010. One key has a minor chip, the side panels have damage, and there are screws missing on the back panel.” Link

ax73 “AKAI AX73 6 Voice Vintage Analog Synthesizer (1986)
In Excellent Condition, Tested, Fully Functional – missing lowest C key

Units is CLEAN, All knobs, faders, wheels, buttons & keys trigger and are fully responsive. All ports and jacks fully functional.

Auction includes:

Akai AX73 Analog Synthesizer (power cable attached)

6 voice VCO Analog Synthesizer based on Curtis CEM 3394 chips, produced in 1986. Photos are of the actual unit.

I’m the second owner of this classic and had it fully cleaned inside and out summer of 2016. All keys professionally lubricated, new 3V battery, display nice and bright.

I intended to perform the 6 stereo channel mod on the sampler DIN input, but just never had the time. The lowest C key needs to be restored, however the trigger contact is fully functional and has never been an issue.

Sounds just as beefy, heavy and thick as when I got it. The top panel has adequate room to accommodate desktop synth modules or an array of fx pedals.” Link

ax80Nice condition, the side cheeks are in good condition the rest of the synth is in nice condition.

All the screens are bright and functional, the button pads and keyboard work fine and all the oscillators are working and in tune.

This is a fantastic synth with a great sound and musical filter.
Programming sounds is super easy through the 5 VFD displays, a bit of a hidden gem among synthesisers in my opinion.

Fully working.” Link
