I just did a gig where the headline band used a JV1080 and I'd forgotten just how GM it sounded. OTOH, I rocked (even if I do say so myself). VAST is pretty much the canine testes when it comes to a synthesis architecture - the PC3 series especially so.
It's one of those things - if it broke / got stolen , would you buy another to replace it? The answer in my case was a definite 'yes' which is how I've ended up with 2 PC3s and a K2661 (and a couple of K2500s but I don't count them).
Or, going back to the original analogy, they 'just work' ...
