i got this for @200 CANADIAN! a fine machine with great sounds. the piano sounds kick ass. plenty of functions for my purposes, more editable parameters than i can handle. menu is all right, very comprehensive but not very reader-friendly. patch editing is not that difficult in my opinion, just READ THE MANUAL! it's worth the time. i hook it up with sonar, use an emu launchpad for tweaking and it's very very cool.

Great synth. Most sounds that I use are great although I still can't find - anywhere - strings that I'm completely happy with. Given a little EQ, this unit will just blow you away. Compared to much higher priced units and now the highly touted Korg Triton - I have never and still don't like Korg sounds - no contest. I'll take the Roland.

I bought the JV880 a few years ago used. It immediately became one of the most used units in my bank of synth modules. Although it is certainly not the newest, it hosts a large amount of card and PCM cards. It's a fun module and it's module was a big step up from the U-220's and older D-110. As far as specs go I'll leave that for a web search :-) It's a real good deal for the used prices you can get them for. I'm going to get the 3080 someday when I get some extra bucks but for now, I hope it keeps chugging along!

Just to put this in perspective, the D110 is over 10 years old and was one of the first affordable multi-timbral modules. I still have mine, though I don't use it too often with some perserverance you can get some usable sounds. It's a pig to edit though it's SYSEX implementation is pretty good for a unit of this age.

I have a D110 and barely ever use it - The samples are very poor by modern standards, and the synth section is weak. It can do some weird FX etc and some good incidental percussion - but the JV880 wipes the floor with it. I played on it briefly in Turnkey a year or so ago and was very impressed - especially due to its price/quality balance!

Im planning on getting one myself very soon.
