For my money, the 1080/JV sounds still are the best. Korg always slathered too much reverb on its ROMples, and Yamaha just hasn't had very good ROMples ever. The only competition for the JV soundsets is the Kurzweil set, but Young-Chang hasn't invested in new sounds for 20 years. My 1080 (and the Classical and World cards) are still my go-to's. (And I own/owned Korg, Yamaha, and Kurzweil synths so I have been able to make the comparisons many times.)
