I have Sylenth1 and the Virus Rack (basically a B with less knobs).

The Virus is more versatile than Sylenth1, and I think it sounds better in an A-B comparison. However, in a mix, as long as the sounds are similar and you don't use the extra Virus features like PWM or oscillator sync, I really can't tell them apart.
