The least likely thing that a person could ever hope to own is best in show? Perfect.

I will own a unicorn before I will even lay an eye on one of these.

This is why people go to the show to see something new and innovative like the Schmidt Polysynth. Innovation has been lacking in the hardware synth arena for a few year. I was also glade to see new synths from Roland & Korg.

at the expected rrp, you could buy a mint restored minimoog, an arp2600, a good size roland system 100m modular, a korg ps3200, a mac, protools and logic, and a good size audio int for it.

Im all for innovation, cause everyone loves something new, but this is something that those who could afford it, would ironically not really want to buy. where is ze pedigree?

I'd buy it. Or I'd save up for it at least... I bet it would take some time though...

I can't believe that the Kronos didn't make the list.
