My first Sequencer was the QX1. *shudder*

I always had access to the RX5 when it came out and very rarely used it. It's from the "more is more" school of marketing. I always found it...well... boring.
Competent but not that interesting.
I think perhaps the younger generations have romanticized some of these beasts... and may it serve them well. Inspiration is always a good thing... Now RX5 to me is a bunch of samples on a hard drive that I'll never ever use.

Still got one! And a whole bunch of unused 5 1/4" floppies... that don't get used. Solid bit of kit, though.

I have no idea what I'm doing.

It has fantastic MIDI connectivity... One of it's best features back in the day...
