About This Listing

Thank you for viewing this listing for another Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 available immediately from Rob's Rare Synths

This Prophet is a consignment sale for a client who delivered it to us in need of service. The unit has been fully restored and upgraded to our high standard, and is now offered for sale!

This unit is a late unit that had two rare features not found on most Prophets. For one, it has a factory power inlet jack. That however is not as rare as the fact that the "midi in out" text is printed onto the back panel rather than being a sticker. Both of these features don't add much functionality, but it does make this prophet a bit more unique than others available.

The unit has been upgraded with a new toroidal transformer that eliminates the mechanical noise inherent to stock Prophets (stock prophets audibly buzz when powered on. You can usually hear it across the room!) This new transformer also helps some with the audio output noise floor. 
Additionally, this transformer helps the unit run considerably cooler than other Prophets. The heat sink will only be lightly warm to the touch, rather than scorching hot, like a stock prophet. This will help with tuning and the longevity of the Prophet. 
It should be noted this transformer does not change the sound of the unit fundamentally. This is a common question we're asked.

The unit also has the awesome Tauntek firmware installed. This firmware expands the prophets primitive midi, but more so with patch loading and backup via sysex. Our favorite new feature added is the ability to do a Unison Detune like the Jupiter 6. There are other features accessible, but the other great thing about this new firmware is that the Prophet behaves as normal at all times. 

Otherwise, the following was done to this unit:
- All tantalum capacitors replaced with new
- Any factory updates needed were done
- New memory battery
- New 60 pin ribbon between CPU and voice board
- Updated PSU
- Full calibration of all VCO's, VCF, and OTA balances
- New keyboard bushings
- Fresh cleaning of all pots and j wire bus bars
- Light cabinet restoration. The wood is in great shape. 

This unit is ready to go immediately and will ship within 2 business days.
This is a fine Prophet in excellent cosmetic shape, and you will be hard pressed to fine another in this good of cosmetic and functional condition, though we do have another for sale on our Reverb page.

This Prophet has been rebuilt by competent technicians (us, Rosen Sound) and we our known for our Prophet work and products online to help serve the Prophet user base.
