Yamaha TX216 with 5 Yamaha TF1 Modules

” Up for sale is our Yamaha TX816 synthesizer rack with FIVE TF1 DX7 engines loaded.
Although the TF1 modules are the DX7 engine, these have balanced XLR outs… That gives a MUCH cleaner, louder sound. The original DX7 is known for being very noisy, these are much cleaner and bolder sounding… Essentially the sonics are much like a DX5.

This TX is in great condition, all TF1 modules work and sound great except for the middle one which needs a new battery installed.. I bought a new battery from Syntaur and will include it for new owner.. i just dont have the time to install. All caps on cards and power supply still check out good and as normal : )” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Yamaha TX216

“This Yamaha TX216 has been fully restored by Synhouse, including 2 new lithium batteries in 2 new battery sockets for easier replacement (and because soldered-in batteries are 100x more known to leak, don’t know why), and it has the Synhouse/Synclav com TX216/TX816 power supply upgrade, in fact it is the very first in the world to have this, and has been worked on day and night here for 16 days to finish off this power supply upgrade kit and installation.

Synhouse has engineered (2016-2019) a massive power supply upgrade that puts a Synclavier power supply into the Yamaha TX816. It’s a little more than that, it’s actually a custom +5v digital power supply and +/-15v Synclavier analog power supply that goes into the TX816 with upgraded wiring, improved grounding, and additionally gets rid of that ridiculous donkey tail AC power cord (only 2-prong, it isn’t even grounded), putting a normal, properly grounded, IEC AC inlet on the back so that it can use a standard computer power cord. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Yamaha TX216 with 4 TF-1 Modules

“Yamaha TX216 with (4) TF-1 modules. Condition is Used.

This is a vintage Yamaha Pro keyboard rack mount piece used in all the top studios from way back in the 80s…still in use today. If you are reading this, you probably know what this monster can do. This is basically 4 vintage DX7 synths in one rack, with the ability to house up to 8 total modules.

Balanced +4 pro level output for each module.

I bought this unit used, and has worked fine for me. I’m not using it much these days, so this needs to go to someone who will put it to good use.

It is not physically perfect, but is functionally perfect. Due to the age, I am selling this unit as is, with no returns, although I will guarantee no DOAs.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Yamaha TX216 with 2 TF1 modules

A great start on your way to a full TX816 rack

Synth is fully functional (2 DX7’s) in excellent condition with normal wear and tear. This comes from my vintage synth recording studio, smoke free, and always covered to protect from dust. There are a few small scratches and minor rack rash from installation. The first TG1 module has a light scratch see pics. The left rack ear has a small dent on the lower left corner. It was this way when I purchased it and does not effect performance. New rack ears can be purchased if need be.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Yamaha TX-216 with 7 TF1 Modules

216 ” This is a Yamaha TX816 MIDI Rack. Only 7 of the spaces are filled. The 8th space has the factory blank panel. (There is no “TX716″ but that is what it should be called) Back when I used it. I gradually added modules to it, and only got up to 7. When I got this, it was arguably the coolest synthesizer available. Each module is the equivalent of a DX7 synthesizer, except with high-quality balanced +4 outputs for studio and pro use. Sounds fantastic. Manufactured in the late 80s, original list close to $5k.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

x216 “Liebe eBayer,

wir räumen unseren Proberaum auf! Unter den Hammer kommt daher

ein YAMAHA TX216 MIDI Rack mit 4x TF1 Modulen

Informationen zum Gerät gibt es zum Beispiel hier: http://www.sequencer.de/syns/yamaha/TX816_TX416_TX216.html .
Das Gerät war fest in einem Rack verbaut und funktionierte bei seinem letzten Einsatz vor ca. 5 Jahren einwandfrei. Seitdem stand das Gerät nur (im Rack verbaut) im trockenen Proberaum.

Zum Zustand lässt sich folgendes sagen:

Leiche Lackkratzer vom Rackeinbau sind vorhanden
Das Gerät lässt sich einschalten und bedienen, das Display leuchtet und zeigt an. Allerdings konnte ich die Midi-Eingänge und –Ausgänge mangels fehlender Gerätschaften nicht testen.
Dem Rackeinbau ist es auch geschuldet, dass der Netzstecker des Gerätes ausgetauscht wurde und das Netzkabel relativ kurz ist (siehe Bild).
In eine der rückseitigen Blenden wurde eine Aussparung gesägt, vermutlich verlief hier einmal ein Kabel.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
