Synthronics - Modern PSUs for classic vintage synths

Just a heads up, Andrej from Synthronics is releasing a bunch of custom replacement PSUs for classic vintage synthesizers and I have to say I'm impressed. Just installed my replacement Juno-6 PSU and on top of being smaller and lighter than the original it seems to have better groundings and isolation, as it's improved a ton of the high pitched noise and DCO leaking into the jacks board, so typical in the Juno-6 and 60. It's a switched solution but with linear regulators, with excellent measurements and low noise. It's also very nicely built, with isolators included and a lot of attention to detail, I highly recommend it.

Link to Juno-6/60 PSU: https://synthronics.de/roland-ju6-60-psu-new/

Korg Mono/Poly PSU: https://synthronics.de/korg-monopoly-psu-replacement/

The best news is that more models are coming, with Jupiter-8 and Prophet VS PSUs dropping very soon. Andrej is also open to suggestions for what PSUs you'd prefer to see. You can contact him on Facebook directly here: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100006878447478 for requirements, suggestions and orders (don't forget to mention autoy sent you )

I wish they’d do a replacement transformer for the Matrix 1000.

Andrej is very much looking for suggestions. I agree the Matrix 1000 is an excellent candidate.

Do you work for them or something?

Great idea, given the age of the synths in question and the fact that the power supplies in said synths are, as they say, not 100% reliable anymore... and PSU failure can take other rare components with them.

Glad you asked. No. I’m just helping them out with what I believe is an outstanding product for vintage synths.

Memorymoog and most Oberheim models are being considered yes. Most probably the next in line is Matrix 12/Xpander.

A new PSU for the Matrix1000 would be useful.

Send the request to Andrej at Synthronics.

My Matrix1000 sits in his workshop right now so it is definitely coming.
