I agree with the 'review' concerning the interface and the bugs/faults and the sound varies wildly from sounding like any cheap 80s analog (JX-3P, alpha juno) via VA (yeah it sounds like a VA sometimes - sounds harsh not smooth like for ex Jupiter 8) into space-gasmic weirdo stacked sounds (that to my ears still sad a little on the cold/dark side to make it the ultimate analog).
A better UI and more thoughtful design (maybe REMOVE some features to make it more musical and less like it's competing with the best digital has to offer) coupled with less fear of super expensive/non workable faults and this synth would be all it's fans make it out to be. He did go hard on it because it's somewhat revered, due to it's being analog and powerful on paper, but nonetheless it could have been a lot better designed for such an expensive flagship synth.
He's spot on with his AN1x review btw
I've visited his site a lot but never noticed his JD-800 review? So is that newish too?

And I quote from his JD-800 review...
Yeah, he's pretty accurate I think. Also the JD scores one rank higher than the A6 and one lower than the An1x which is where I'd put it.All buttons on all synths should be like that. The large ones have great spongy action, like poking your finger into a girl's tit.
