man this thing is insane. don't listen to anyone that doesn't like it. buy one for cheap (mine was $75) download some software and patches and be amazed. forget the presets, go for wierd percussive sounds. yeah it will do pianos and organs and guitars and strings bells and analogs pretty well if you know what you're doing but I wouldn't bother. buy a Trinity if you want realism. Buy a moog if you want moog. this thing is for noise. also great ambient and abstract stuff especially with some reverb and stuff. let the dance freaks have their 303s and VA's this thing is the best thing I own as well as the cheapest (how often can you say that?).

even if you can't program it (it's really not hard. not as easy as turning the cutoff knob on a 303 but not as dull either) there are TONS of patches. yes most of them suck or are going for realistic sounds but you can easily find killer stuff.

The "clock radio" design is absolutley inconvenient. But being able to dump your favorite patches into it and forget about it is nice. Paired with a computer editor it does just fine. The TX-802 is rack mountable, and it sounds "cleaner" due to the 16 bit DAC. But, I kinda like the "dirtier" sound of the original 12 bit DX/TX-7. You could always go nuts and get a TX816 if you had to have the original sound in a rack unit. That would be easier than stacking 8 TX-7s on top of each other ;) Yikes!

I finally have a good House-type organ machine! I love the sounds (except the nasty piano!). I've tried to program this thing, I now have a headache... I'm looking for patches for it.

I find the DX7/TX7 more expressive than many modern PCM sample based synthesizers. Check out my Korg X3, Yamaha DX7/TX7, & Song-writers site at:
