I have a Microwave XT and a K5000S. Used to have a K5000R and a Microwave 1. (:

There's no comparison. The Microwaves get dirty, true. The Microwaves in fact I use than the K5000s (they are prettier) But there is nothing out there that can get more metallic than the K5000S. The sounds aren't for everyone but for dark pads, strange noises, and weird sounds that no other synth can make... its great.

Plus, the K5000S's resonance knob is the best tweeter durability test out there. (:

Quite frankly, I my jaw still drops down to my bloody knees when I play this synth. IF you like to program synths, DO get yourself a K5Ks. IF you need a very flexible controller keyboard, DO get a K5Ks. In the mix, you'll hear this synth stand out. It's a pro at PADS and METALLICs. The sound engine CAPABILITY is limitless and extremely flexible. All this and I have only had it for a couple of weeks! Nord Modular or Nova are next on the hit list. Given marks are based on K5Ks' value for the dollar. BTW, if you have to pay $700-800, highly advice you jump on it. Only the a few confused "Preset Lamers" will sell this, so prices on preowned units should rise. (IMHO)

I think the K5000s is a great keyboard. i use it as my controller and it performs that task brillantly. This is a keyboard for people who like to create their own patches. it dosen't have a warm sound but that is the appeal of this keyboard. It is brillant in creating dark moody pads. finally it is great valley for money and in 10 years time i reckon it will be a classic.

Just got mine at, where else, Sam Ashe for $460 bucks. I crushed the Sound Diver floppy by accident though. Wondering where I could download it, as well as patches. Anyway so far, so good. I was just looking for a midi controller keyboard and came across this, had to buy it. Presets are ok, I'm real happy there's a disk drive for cheap storage of patches. I'll be back with a further review in a few weeks
