Im going to a store with all these Vintage Synths on Friday. What should I check out?

What should i should i check out? I've been thinking about getting a dx-7IIfd for sounds that i can't do with my andromeda but i want to test one in person before i buy. I've played around with one at college but only briefly so i dont remember much.

however, this store has a ton of good stuff and i can spend a little bit more to get something cooler. i'm only familiar with a fraction of these synths. theres definitely big budget stuff i want to test out for a mega purchase down the line but right now im looking for something in the +/- $500 range

im looking for anything you guys think would compliment the andromeda but also stand out

here is a picture of the store and a list of the synths:

if you donĀ“t like the dx, try the casio cz-1000...
sounds FMish but is easier to program and should be even cheaper
for 500 you should be able to get the cz and maybe a crumar bit one.
i really like the bit, it sounds very "italian" if you happen to be into italodisco and 80ies stuff.

Great place for repairs here! Sam just brought my 909 back from the dead a few weeks ago. He also took care of some issues my SH-101 had and also brought my e-mu Morpheus back from the dead! Very nice guy to deal with!

I'd also like to recommend this place for repairs. Sam just fixed my Waldorf Microwave Revision A, which had a malfunctioning voice. My own research led me to believe it was a faulty CEM3389, but Sam discovered it was simply a faulty op amp. The parts cost was $12 instead of $60! While he had it on the bench, he also calibrated the filter settings on all voices.

I've had gear repaired at nearly every major shop in the tri-state area (dBm, EARS, etc.), and while I've had some good experiences, Sam was far and away the best. Friendly, well-informed, reasonable rates ($60 per hour)... everything you could ask for in a tech. And his shop is a fantasyland for synth obsessives like myself.

If you have a sec to do a good deed, add him to the GOOD TECHS sticky:

Gear service shops / tech list

Thanks!
