Nailed it. I also personally cant find any synth with a screen/display aesthetically appealing. The X/Y pad on the Moog Voyager is really unsightly too, like an ugly screen that also doesnt work any more :lol:

I see a couple of votes for the Juno-60, but i've always found all the patch buttons etc. on the right to be really ugly. Juno-6 all the way!

A screen, as in one screen? Well, how about six?...

Not really, but it certainly doesn't look like a Nike product. Relax man, you said yourself its 'all too subjective' :roll:

Jupiter 8 has been mentioned a few times, but for visual aesthetics, I actually prefer its little brother:

I agree on the PPG WAVE 2.3, and the Jupiter 6. I also think the D-50 is a bombshell. Cannot decide between these.
