Just about the best deal in synthdom. This is clearly one of the most powerful and versatile synths available. Everyone's banging on about the underpricing. Who cares. Owners know how good they are. Most are owned by professionals who have no intention of selling theres. Try buying one. Most have gone ages before you get your em in. The sounds are Jupiter meets Dx meets Moog. Just about wonderful. They are also built like a tank. Miles better than other 'great' polys of the 80s. They never break down. Lovely keyboard of the best I have played. A true classic!

I just can't believe the disrespect people show towards this synth. It's this, it's that! The midi...boring. This is one of the best synths of all-time. A great masterpiece. The prices are just mad! $300 from a shop with a pg800! They usually charge me $300 to walk through the door when I go into a music shop. Did they pay for a taxi home by any chance? The sounds are lush, crazy, cutting, new-age, whatever you want. This synth's used everwhere by people who know what they want and know what they are doing. If you are a dealer silly enough to sell one of these for $300, chucking in a pg800, you deserve to go out of business. If you are a musician you deserve a 106..nuff said!

This is a monster synth. Great programming, great build quality and great keyboard. It is an hysterically underrated synth which can be picked up for a tad more than a 106. Funny enough, if you switch most of it off it sounds like a 106. The pg800 is a must. It lets the machine do itself justice. What's all this nonsense about the jx being cripled, destroyed, embarrassed by its syst ex? I've got a room full of old 'classic' gear which can't interface with anything, including me half the time. This synth should be considered up their with the very best synths and should be worth a heap of cash more. If you are thinking of buying one of these beasts, jusy do it. You will not be disappointed. Roland really knew what they were doing when they built this beauty. A lot of this old gear is hyped to death. The jx certainly isn't. Don't let the syst ex. story put you off. I owned and played a prophet 5 for 11 years and it wasn't a patch as good as this monster.

Not a bad machine but too much expensive for its real value .. I prefer Junos..

I used to play alot some years ago, and I thought of getting back in the sadle. So I went down to our local instrumentshop and there it was; the JX-10 with the PG800 priced at 300$. The unit was in good shape, so I bought it without hesitating. I've been using it as a mastersynth for creating music on computer for some time now, just waiting to afford a better master keyboard (weighed etc etc). It's original sounds isn't all that good for the most, but with the PG800 up the sleeve, I've done some nice things to it, and I'm incredibly impressed by the fat sounds it can produce.
