But a year later, at least the street price on a Prophet 600 was a mere
$1500. Actually affordable (barely so!) for a 16-year-old with an
afterschool bug-reporting/light-6502-programming job and parents willing to
kick in a few $$ at Xmas. Given the choice between that and the
less-expensive Poly61 with no knobs ... well, there was no choice!
