Yes it can be difficult because not everyone has access to vintage gear or all the new synths available.

As an example, I purchased some of the Roland boutique synths based on YouTube videos. I could not return them fast enough. Nothing like what I heard on the videos. There was obviously some behind the scenes enhancing going on. After the fact, I even felt like perhaps some of what I was hearing was not the boutique synth. Marketing can be smoke and mirrors.
