Here for your consideration, one fully expanded SY85, complete with 8mb Ram and 2x brand-new SYEMBO6 from sector101, giving it a full 10mb, 5x the stock memory capacity.

The SY85 uses beautiful 16 bit AWM2 synthesis and effects, making sounds reminiscent of lofi vaporwave and early 90s anime soundtracks. If this sound pallette is to your liking, then you will be quite satisfied with the '85

This unit has been thoroughly gone over and cleaned. I replaced the floppy drive belt and it spins now, but unfortunately it is still not reading the discs. However, the excess memory should hold plenty of sounds for you.

Cosmetically it has some light scratches on the surface.

Comes with sturdy wooden case, which is why shipping is pricey on this one.

With the memory upgrades this is the most powerful sy85 you will find, and the sturdy flight case will ensure she reaches you unharmed.

Thank you, and be sure to check my shop for more great late 80s/early 90s Yamaha gear!
