Roland Juno DS61 or Yamaha MX49

I am looking at adding a workstation with my MPC for the bread and butter sounds. I've got the Live and would like to have a good keyboard with quality sounds to pair with it standalone. I know both are good quality and have their strengths and weaknesses but is their a clear difference or just personal preference.

My past experience has been years ago and limited time with a MO6 and a Fantom. If I remember right Yamaha seemed to have better pianos, EPs, and a few others while Roland had better sounding strings, guitars and synths. Is this still the case? Has the gap closed anywhere? Do either have convincing brass?

My budget is anywhere from about $500 - $800.
