I used to own a Karma, and can't remember any particularly great rhodes presets tbh.

It has 2 expansion slots, so you can add the EXBPCM01 Piano card (and others) which features some good EP sounds.

Couple of demos here

btw, remember the keybed on the Karma is not very good (like Triton Le). The instrument itself is wonderful though.

I never played a korg karma, but the triton with the piano card and the Oasys has good if not overwhelming rhodes sounds to my ears. If I were to want "that" sound, I'd consider the new generation ones on the used market or an older Nord Electro 2 Rack.
