(updated 2/14/2021, prices raised on systems w/Superfloppy, 9.1gb SCSI hard drive, and V/PK velocity keyboards due to significantly higher
company costs on those items in 2021 as compared to 2002, this is the first Synhouse price increase posted on those items in 19+ years)

Building High Reliability Machines


Recommended Synhouse upgraded system configurations

Any system anyone would possibly want to pay for can be built by special order, all the way up to the largest NED factory 96-voice Synclavier 9600, and beyond that with custom configurations.

All Synhouse recommended systems below are upgraded considerably from the original NED configuration. All systems include the highest Model D processor, upgraded software, the MIDI Option, a full Macintosh computer/software, and gigantic sound libraries. All systems are available in USA/Japan 115v or 230v European power standards. There is NO extra charge for 230v European power at this time.


Some recommended Synhouse upgraded system configurations:

16 Synclavier II synthesizer voices
$price/availability varies with stock$



8 polyphonic sampling voices + V/PK velocity keyboard
$7,850



16 polyphonic sampling voices + V/PK velocity keyboard
$8,950



Synhouse Reference Standard Synclavier PSMT system with 32 panning polyphonic sampling voices, 100kHz stereo user sampling, V/PK velocity keyboard, and much more
$11,750 (this is 4x the system that the systems under $10,000 are, with $4,450 in cards and the $3,000 V/PK package added, + superior custom wiring and other high end extras)

This is it. The Synhouse Reference Standard Synclavier system is the standard by which all others don't compare. Compare the Synclavier fidelity (100kHz polyphonic sampling providing enhanced precision over the time domain, zero oversampling instrumentation DACs creating hot, open sound that doesn't have the crushed digital CD player sound every Asian box has from Akai to Yamaha, from E-mu to Kurzweil), performance (sync between sequencer tracks, sync relative to external SMPTE time code, MIDI, etc.), professional studio interface capability, number of voices (expandable to 96)/audio channels out (expandable to 32)/MIDI ports (expandable to 32), user interface (160 buttons + many onscreen displays), keyboard workmanship (76 wooden keys, pure optical contactless keyboard mechanism, high gloss ebony finish, aluminum/velvet ribbon controller), performance controller expressiveness (Moog pitch/mod wheels, ribbon controller, attack velocity, release velocity, polyphonic pressure sensitivity, inputs for multiple footswitches, pedals, and breath controller), expandability (96 voices and more RAM than anyone has ever been willing to pay for), and the quality of the sound libraries to ANY OTHER electronic music system that has ever existed, past, present, or future.

The Synclavier is still the king at 30.


NEW! Shortloaded Synhouse Synclavier PSMT system with 16 panning polyphonic sampling voices, 100kHz stereo user sampling, V/PK velocity keyboard, and much more
$10,050 (this is a shortloaded 16v version of the $11,750 system above, all else is the same)


Two Special Offers: Rare very late revision Synhouse Synclavier PSMT system with 16 panning polyphonic sampling voices, 100kHz stereo user sampling, V/PK velocity keyboard, and much more
(one system that is available 2 ways)
$10,050 with 16 DDV panning polyphonic sampling voice cards

$14,050 adds (at a discount that relates only to a one-time discount on this one system in stock) 16 latest revision Synclavier 9600 SS7X (eXtended style) stereo option synthesizer voices to the shortloaded 16 DDV panning polyphonic sampling voice cards for 32 voice total polyphony

(this is a very rare late 1988 example of the PSMT, same basic style as the $11,750 Synhouse Reference Standard Synclavier PSMT system above, but this is one of the last, if not THE last, of the PSMT production run (late 1984-late 1988), has an aluminum-lined shielded blue ATS 27U enclosure, DDV panning voice cards, rare enhanced 50 Amp power supply, had the highest D processor from day one, all else is the same, this is almost the total hardware of a Synclavier 9600 that is still in the latest version of the older classic blue ATS packaging with discrete 19" rack panels, no part of this is upgraded from earlier systems, it was fully built to order as a new system in late 1988, these have rarely been seen here)



Synclavier 9600 system (system in black studio skins w/doors) with 32 panning polyphonic sampling voices, 100kHz stereo user sampling, V/PK velocity keyboard, and much more
$12,250



Synclavier Tapeless Studio system with 32 panning polyphonic sampling voices and 4 tracks of 100kHz Direct-to-Disk recording with SCSI audio storage, V/PK velocity keyboard, and much more
$13,750



Synclavier Tapeless Studio system with 32 panning polyphonic sampling voices and 16 tracks of 100kHz Direct-to-Disk recording with the MaxTrax upgrade with SCSI audio storage, V/PK velocity keyboard, and much more
$15,750



Synclavier PostPro SD (Sound Design) system (of all the NED systems, this is the latest and last of them, polyphonic sampling tower and Direct-to-Disk tower combined into one very heavy tower in the very latest black studio skin packaging with doors) with 32 polyphonic sampling voices and 16 tracks of 100kHz Direct-to-Disk recording with the MaxTrax upgrade with SCSI audio storage, V/PK velocity keyboard (not a low-throw SD keyboard, this is the full performance model for real players), and much more
$15,750



Synclavier Tapeless Studio system (either in classic blue ATS w/panels or the latest style in black studio skins w/doors as seen here) with 32 panning polyphonic sampling voices and 16 tracks of 100kHz Direct-to-Disk recording with the MaxTrax upgrade with SCSI audio storage, UDIO module for AES/EBU digital domain transfers to other platforms at up to 96kHz, DSP70 Time Scale Modification Option, V/PK velocity keyboard, and much more
$16,750


These are just suggested system configurations and anything is possible.

Beyond that, the big poly systems can have more than anyone would want to pay for, 32 or 64 more poly voices up to a total of 96 poly voices, a synthesizer voice expander with up to 32 Synclavier II synthesizer voices making a custom 128-voice system, and extra stand alone 100kHz Direct-to-Disk recording units with tracks in groups of 16, and more.

If your budget is limited, the under $10,000 machines above are strongly recommended, as they are an excellent value and mostly easily card-upgradeable to any higher level of equipment.

There are no dead ends in any of these suggested configurations, meaning that no hardware will be obsoleted and discarded in upgrades, because they are already starting at the highest NED hardware level (D processor with all associated cards, Superfloppy, SCSI Winchester, MIDI Option, and the VK Panel option or V/PK velocity keyboard option and the VK Panel option).

It generally takes from 30 to 90 working days to build, burn in, and fully test a system. The build time usually depends on workload, the system size, and number of hardware option subsystems that need to be installed, tested, and burned in.

Historically, most Synhouse systems ship to Western Europe and are exported from LAX/Los Angeles, California, but systems are installed in 16 countries and can be shipped and supported anywhere.

Personal studio cartage and setup/tutorial can be provided in Southern California.

If something is to your liking but beyond your immediate budget, Synhouse accepts Visa, MasterCard, Amex, bank wires, or a mix of any of them, and can offer a deposit/layaway plan of 30/60/90 days or more, depending on the total system price.

Please write if you have any requirements or questions.
