I'm assuming the lead synth goes on bottom. But in a home DAW or studio setting, which would you put on top tier?

Roland Juno 60 or DX7 II?

I would put the Juno 60 on top. This would give you better access to the sliders.

But then he might not see the DX7's display and buttons! Seriously, it depends on the space you have. Personally, I would place them side by side. I guess most people would prefer the lead synth on the upper tier. If you ever play piano-type sounds, they'll be more comfortable to play on the lower tier.

Personally I would place the Juno 60 on top, in case you ever want to do any real time editing of the sliders, and easier to see the interface. The DX7 would go fine on the bottom for sounds such as basslines. Or really depends which synth produces the primary sounds.

I always like to put synths on stands in order by size with smallest on top, largest on bottom. So putting the DX7 on top would keep with that aesthetic as well as being able to see the screen better as another member suggested.
