I'll tell you right now that if you're serious about synths, the nord lead 2 will destroy pretty much anything you put it up against.
Except maybe a virus or something of that magnitude. But I'd say even then they're on par with the virus.
Recently did an entire record where the keyboardist/synth player used a Nord Lead 2 and a Moog Voyaguer and both had such huge lush tones. The stereo effects you can create with it are unreal, and the ability to just create new sounds in a second is also a huge selling feature for me.
