(updated Octoberl 2018)

Notice: The prices of most systems will be raised December 1st, 2018, all systems not paid/deposited on by 11/31/2018 will be subject to the price increase.

The cost of the components in these systems (the highest D processor, all voice card types, most memory card types, MIDI cards, etc.) has increased significantly for years and the hardware/parts sales page has shown that almost in real time, but it hasn't been added into the full system prices, now most of those cost increases will be added into system prices.

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
$price/availability varies with stock$



16 polyphonic sampling voices
$5,000 - All-time best poly Synclavier value
Special availability: One of these was 90%+ built and not needed, so this one can ship much faster than the normal build times, $5,000, available now.



8 polyphonic sampling voices + V/PK velocity keyboard
$6,200



16 polyphonic sampling voices + V/PK velocity keyboard
$7,300 (adds $3,000 V/PK keyboard package to $5,000 system for a $700 discount)



Synhouse Reference Standard Synclavier PSMT system with 32 panning polyphonic sampling voices, 100kHz stereo user sampling, V/PK velocity keyboard, and much more
$10,700 (this is 4x the system the $5,000 system is, at least a $3,250 discount over upgrading the $5,000 system to this level)

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 or optional finishes such as African mahogany, 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
$9,000 (this is a shortloaded 16v version of the $10,700 system above, all else is the same)



Synclavier 9600 system with 32 panning polyphonic sampling voices, 100kHz stereo user sampling, V/PK velocity keyboard,
and much more
$11,200



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
$12,700



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
$14,700



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, 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
$15,700


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 $5,000 machine above is strongly recommended, as it is an excellent value and easily 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 10 to 90 working days to build, burn in, and fully test a system, with 30 working days being the average build time. 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.

Most Synhouse systems ship to Western Europe and are exported from LAX/Los Angeles, California.

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.
