But it's a matter of personal opinion and taste.

I think I can truly say that I very likely am a bigger Roland fan than
anyone else on this list.

But Juno-106 has never been high on my "most desireable synths" list. In
fact MC-303 is higher on my list than Juno-106. MC-303 would add far more
to my setup than Juno-106 would.

Here's my list of some truly desirable synths: (for my taste)

  A good wavetable synth (like XP-50/XP-80, JV-1080/JV-2080, JD-990).
  ANYTHING Modular or Patchable
     Starting with System-700, but incl System-100, System-100m
     Moog Modular, Steiner Parker, Doepfer, Serge, Buchla, MS-20
     EMU, PAiA, ARP, and others.
  Jupiter-8
  SH-5
  Pro-One
  Octave Cat
  Minimoog
  OB 2 Voice
  Prophet-5
  MKS-80/MPG-80
And probably about 50 others before I got to Juno-106.

But I completely understand that for other people Juno-106 would be higher
in priority than for me.

I just saw Juno-106 for sale in a pawn shop in Everett, WA. It's been there
for months. Absolutely like new condition. $450 (But I'm sure you could
bargain much lower). Let me know if you're interested and I'll try to get
name and address for you.

Regards,
Mike.
