Having owned >one for a couple of years back in the mid-to-late 80's, I can only say that it is better left alone. Among other things, it was poorly built, noisy, and had very poor bandwidth. At the time it was all there was (short of hauling around a couple of Revox's) but it has been greatly superceded by what is now available. If the reissue of the Micro Synth is any indication of EH's reissue mentality, we can expect no improvements on the original.
