Compact DX7 compatible synth with some extras...
This compact synth can load all the classic DX7 patches and can be picked up for around 200€. Additionally it has handson controls (knobs), a sequencer and some (surprisingly usable) drumsounds. If only I'd find a good editor/librarian, I'd give it 5* as the DX200 is not fully editable without an editor and the original editor was made for yesteryears computers...
Edit Feb-2019: As promissed, I'll have to beef up the 4* to 5* as I just found an amazing, fast, intuitive, literally hands-on editor for this little beast! Much, much better than Yamaha's own editor...

Full of surprises
This box sounds amazing and an entire record could be produced on it. Bought it for the drum machine and DX7 patch compatibility, but the tweakability of the synth makes this full of fun surprises. Resonant filter, distortion, and motion sequencer take the DX200 to places the DX7 could never go.
Combining a 6-operator 16-note polyphonic FM synthesizer with over one hundred rhythm sounds and a 16-step analog-style sequencer, the DX200 is one of the most unique "groove boxes" available today. Thanks to its realtime control knobs, you can easily get inside this once-forbidden FM architecture and effortlessly tweak the voice parameters to come up with totally bizarre sounds that have never been heard before. Many hip-hop and techno producers are already hip to the punchy bass sounds and radical metallic textures that can be created with FM, and now you can, too! If you've been looking for some fresh new electronic sounds for your dance tracks, the DX200 is your new secret weapon.
