My DX7 does sound much better, but Hexter does.
Hm, a friend hopefully still has got his DX7 II, maybe he sold it at
Ebay. A direct comparison might be interesting.
Btw. for my 'one of the first' DX7 there's unwanted noise when I use the
modulation wheel to control the volume. In 198x they said that this is a
failure by the software and they would give me an upgraded DX7, but IMO
even those DX7 did sound different.
OT: I never noticed any difference for the sound quality, of different
versions of the Prophet 5, but I guess everybody heard about stable or
unstable tuning for different versions of the Mini Moog ;). Revisions
could have different qualities. [OT end]

*lol* Full ACK, while Achim's DX7 II has a much less loud keyboard (but
still a loud keyboard), my old DX7 in the brown metal case really has
got a loud keyboard.
Yes, this is the week point of this keyboard.
> but the feeling, while playing it,
As a guitarist I prefer half-weighted, but weighted keyboards. The
Kurzweil PC2 has got a common half-weighted keyboard that is used by
many other synth of several companies. I don't remember the name, but
IMO this is the best keyboard for synth, excepted somebody prefers
weighted, resp. original piano keyboards.
