At 329£, the RX17 was a very basic entry-level drum machine, but slightly more advanced than the RX21 and RX21L that used the same box.
The 26 samples available have a distinct 80s lo-fi feel, and are pretty much the same ones that can be found in similar low-end machines by Yamaha from that era.
The sound chip is the same found on the RX11 and RX15, defining these late 80s drum boxes as a new package of that older technology while the high-end RX7 and RX5 had much better processors and DACs inside.
Playback supports up to 11 mono sounds simultaneously.
