So ... the (ex) 16 voices Alesis Andromeda priced at 2300 € or the Prophet 08 priced 1900€ are only... well toys... they are not expensive enough to be considered "amazing" 16/8 voice analog synths.
With 4999€ you can buy brand new combo like: Andromeda (well... not more) + Prophet08 + MoogSmall phatty . Now try to convince me that the Sunsyn is so amazing to choose it instead of a real amazing trio like A6+P08+SP. Let me think.... Well a Prophet 08 + Small phatty and a Vsynth Xt... yes another good combo... Come on do you really choose a Sunsyn over that combos ??? Think about it.
That's insane just like the Moog Voyager XL. I really would like to know how many Sunsyn Mk2 and Voyager XL will leave the shops... My right hand is ready to count and I think one hand will be enough to count both.
I have nothing against Jomox. I'm just wondering how ppl are reacting to a 5000€ price for this "quite normal analog synth" with a really awful knob layout.
Well he is only making about 10 of them, it's not a mass produced product. I don't think he's aiming at the general synth market, it's a real niche market within a niche market. He's probably decided to do it because he was getting inquiries about it and realised there was enough demand for a small production run.
And if I remember correctly he wasn't making any profit on them at their former lower price? If the price was lower it wouldn't be worth his time and effort.
I don't consider the the Sunsyn a "quite normal analog synth". The DSI Prophet '08 and the Moog Slim Phatty are not even in the same league.
I'm sure he'll manage to sell the 10 or so he is making, as others have already said I would buy one instantly if I had the cash. It's a seriously great sounding synth.
