Since the DX7
is basically worthless nowadays, it's not a bad deal. Last time someone tried to trade in a DX7
with case to the music shop I was working in, we offered him £40 (about $60.)
MC505's weren't very robust though and I've seen and heard plenty of stories where their knobs would transmit parameter changes even when not being touched. It has some usable sounds though, and more modern than those on the DX7
