yes, i saw those pics when they showed up
afaik, a problem with TB-303s is that they use fragile PCBs and have some hard to find parts, the components are very tight to one another, so fixing it yourself is hard, but doable if you're careful and you manage to find replacement parts
in contrast, a x0xb0x is much more fixable - PCBs are not so fragile, there is much more space between components, and some of the very rare parts have been replaced with easy to find alternatives (case, cpu, pots..)
in both cases, you have the schematic available (for which the analog section is 99% identical) and you can trace problems yourself, tune and calibrate to your liking
now, the TT-303 has no schematic, as far as i can tell it probably doesn't have identical labels on the analog section, and it uses surface mount components, AND the manual says not to open it..
if i had the money, i will definately get a x0xb0x, even tho i _love_ the looks of the original 303..
after all it's all down to the sound and sequencer, a x0xb0x (to me) is easier to maintain and the sequencer is hackable. it's also cheaper
the look'n'feel also add to the pleasure of using it, but it's not so audiable in audio recordings ;]
