Ha! I also had a shootout and didn't find them significantly different. They weren't exactly the same, but I bet no two original 101s are exact either – I know I don't sound like I did in the 80s, certainly every time I get out of a chair :( . I reckon any brand new synth isn't going to sound 100% exactly like its 40-year old relative, but I also reckon Behringer's new gear is close enough for music. Same goes for Korg, I've had the new Odyssey alongside an old one and there was a perceptible difference – only really that the old one sounded like an old Odyssey, and the new one sounded like a new Odyssey.
Just had my 101 completely refurbed so, no, it's not that. And although you're right when you say no 101s sound exactly the same, they all sound closer to each other than the different MS-1.
It's like the previous poster said "very VA".
Glad you like it tho! That's the market.
