Four grand for eight note polyphony seems a tad rich to me. As usual, analog filters limit how far you can push the engine on this thing. For half the cost, you can get a Virus TI and have twice the polyphony in a synth that's the ultimate chameleon. Heck, half the cost nets you a sixteen voice Prologue, and that seems to me what the Quantum is really competing with.

So would I rather have Quantum for four grand in modular? I think we all know what my answer would be, but I'm not exactly their target market.
It's only 8 voices? Oh dear. My pieces can only be played with 12...
