Cant stand the Jx-3p but I really like the Poly61 for that reason.

Yeh, the JP8 came from Japan to sell on. It sold for £7000. I offered it here to a couple of people.
Oh yeah I agree there, features alone are not the main thing. Sound is. And juno does sound nice. Pretty much always. In the case of the 106 in particular I've found it sounding very 'generic' and it's tone, while nice, doesn't do anything for me in 2011. Back in the 90s.. yes!!! I had a Juno 6 for a couple of years in the 90s and loved it, eventually grew tired of the Juno sound..... tried the alphas for a different tastes and believe it or not found some subtle preferences towards the AJs over the 106, ultimately it was always a 'too safe' sounding synth to me (all junos)

SH-101 , Polysix - both limited synths (but I'd say P6 isn't as limited as Juno) but I love the tone of both of them.. big time. I like simple synths too if their sound suits my ears/music which they do, Juno is perhaps for me just too 'juno'

Amazing stories!

A couple of years ago there was a story in Keyboard Magazine about a guy who had five or six Moog Memorymoogs sitting in a warehouse after a music store had left the place. Apparently he had bought the remains of the store or something like that, and this was around 2001 or something like that. They were all brand new, having been stored there for 20 years or so. Perhaps the info is on the net somewhere. He contacted Keyboard so they could go over there and take pictures.
