Solaris #143 For Sale :(

Post by Tarkus » Mon Aug 27, 2018 6:35 am

Sadly, I’m going to have to bid adieu to my Solaris (#143, delivered just over five years ago). It has never left the confines of my smoke-free home(s) and when not in use was always protected by a dust cover. It's been VERY lightly used... for all intents & purposes, it's close to new. Asking $3500, which includes ground shipping expense for US buyers (for interested non-US buyers, best price shipping will be additional).

BTW, it’s not just my Solaris I’m forced to say goodbye-to… in case you or someone you know may have interest I’m also selling:
• Edirol UM880 MIDI Interface (asking $300 incl US ground shipping)
• Focusrite Saffire PRO24 DSB Firewire Interface (asking $250 incl US ground shipping)
• Korg Triton Rack w/EXB-MOSS, EXB8, and upgraded RAM (asking $600 incl US ground shipping)
• Moog Voyager Electric Blue (asking $2800 incl US ground shipping)
• Roland A37 MIDI Controller (asking $350 incl US ground shipping)
• Roland Jupiter 80 (asking $3000 incl US ground shipping)
• Yamaha MG166CX Mixer (asking $325 incl US ground shipping)

Lastly, if you’re anywhere near the Portland Oregon area, I have a number of items available for local pickup:
• Two Roland KC-550 Keyboard Amps ($450 each or $800 for both)
• Two Standtastic 103KSB Keyboard Stands ($125 each or $200 for both)
• Two Gator lightweight rolling cases (GK88 & GK76 - $100 each or $180 for both)
• Case Technology Heavy-Duty ATA built for a Korg Oasys 88 ($250 negotiable)

Feel free to inquire to david dot presley at gmail – I’m happy to reply back with photos and additional info as necessary. Thanks.

And the Solaris (along with the MiniMoog, the Jupiter 80, and the Triton Rack) are now sold.

New owner of solaris #143 reporting for duty.
OS was a little fidgety/slow at first, but after a firmware update is working beautifully.
Thanks for all the work put into making this machine, glad I finally have one!

No questions, only praise.
Seriously, this machine is a godsend for a lifelong seeker of crazy sounds.
Absolutely nothing better for experimental noise in one box.
Thank you John
