My final verdict on the subject at hand is that the RD8 is a very good sounding interpretation of a classic machine (with some cool new features). At the same time they missed the opportunity to squeeze the last bit of 808 magic into the RD. Maybe because of technical constraints or just time and mullah peace out.

the BD went thru the built-in low pass, pulling down the transient. Perfect for downtempo, EDM.
Agreed. That RD-8 bumps HARD!!!
