Well, if they don't play them who cares if they work :lol:

I think this thread has gone on about as far as it needs to...
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

about 6 years ago you could have gotten a Juno for around 300. People with too much money are to blame in my opinion. I got a Roland jx3p instead of a Juno for $160 6 years ago, and I actually got a pg200 for $180 less than a year ago. My opinion the jx3p blows the past the Juno for sure. Unless it is a specialty synth I would never pay the current asking price, I always wait it out search and find what I want. Got a polysix for $360 a year ago as well. No battery damage at all. It is an incredibly overpriced synth. I have fallen in love with the arpeggiator on it, and it has the ability to sound funky which I love, and haven't been able to sell it for those 2 reasons, but I find the arpeggiator and funk sounds Ive been getting out of it powerful and unique. But I am blown away by the prices. I have now chosen to go into DIY euroracks to get away from this ridiculous pricing. I wouldn't pay over $200 for a Juno ahahahahahahhah

So it means that now the Juno-60 owners can sell that with a price what had the the Roland MKS-80 aprox 6 years ago. Also little bit more and its price is same as the SQ Prophet 600. (It makes sense neither if the Behringer makes new synth and takes the price for it 1000 USD)

What I wonder that how come that now the Yamaha TX802 buynow prices are 400..500 EUR and such.
Yamaha FS1R is also 1000 USD or EUR, which was 10 years ago just 350..400 GBP.

the prices for auctions are quite varying. THe same item which sells with 200 GBP with biddingwar, will sell with 100 GBP just a week later with slight interest (is it related to when people receive paycheck?).

Well, I am lucky that I had the worst GAS and were used to obtain the synthesizers 10 years ago when their prices were modest for a most of the synthesizers and the modules.

Back then I had no time to have every synthesizer in use in my arrangements, so now I have all the time needed. Besides, it would be late to obtain most of those synthesizers.

I actually lost money selling my second one out of shipping ignorance. I hope the buyer loves that synth! I should have held in to it as an investment... Although they are bulky
This looks like a psychotropic reaction. No wonder it's so popular...

I tend to second that -- I had always sniffed at the JX-3P until I bought one for 100 Euros some eight or nine years ago. Liked it so much I bought a second one.

There is so much more scope to the JX than to the Juno, and even without the PG-200 Programmer it's fairly easy to use.

Polysixes look quite spectacular but the sound isn't anywhere near as nice as ist looks imply. Without the Ensemble section on, it tends to sound rather bleak, and with the Ensemble section on everything tends to sound the same.

ee... becouse that Mustang is used to smuggle Juno-60 and other vintage synthesizers over the border as "car for sale"? :S :D
That would explain the drastic price change....



(however, I got the point).

And yes... are we still buying with eyes when choosing the synthesizer?
(my juno-106 arrived in a dirty and dusty condition, and so it is like "Aladdin's wonder lamp", as it sounded much better than it look).

It's interesting you shpuld mention that, because I kept my favorite one of the two, which was older, rattier, but better sounding for some reason, which we discussed in another thread. I probably sound like a broken record with that story. It will probably be my dying words...
"*cough, weeze... did you know I owned two Junos..."

The word is "passionate", not "broken record".
To me that topic would be clearly when its about trackers with DOS and hardware synthesizers in conjunction.

(Searching Your posts... hm, I did not found something like that after several pages search. Would be good time reading material, as it can be also pleasing to write, but did not found it)

I have two 106-s and no noise as chorus section is switched off dynamically below certain audio levels.

Hello dear forumers, just registered to post this. I recently started producing music using analog gear, maybe like 6 months ago, and have a friend's Juno-60 in my studio now that I can buy any moment for the above mentioned price of 1000 GBP (I actually checked eBay and couldn't find any prices lower than 1500 GBP). While is it quite a temptation, to be honest, having played it for a week or so, I must conclude that I don't feel it being 'mine'. Not sure whether it's the DCO or the lack of filter control or whatever, but the sound just feels too crispy and plastic, and it was something of a disappointment, even though I do enjoy playing the arps on it over a stripped down beat.

On the other hand, I've always wanted a Mono/Poly and always felt it was really special, in fact basically all of my tracks back from 2010's were produced on a VST emulation of it. I also noticed that it has a VCO instead of a DCO, and also easier to control since there are S-trig and VCF ins. I found a lot of comparisons between Juno-60 and PolySix, but don't generally like the sound or the interface of the second, and have also heard that they have troubles with battery melting out, etc. So the question for me is, has anyone on here owned or compared a Juno and a Mono/Poly? Does it sound any better, in your opinion? Unfortunately, none are available to check in my home town.

Thank you!
S

I just paid $1450 for a mint shape Juno 60.

WHY?

Because I have the emotional attachment to the design, originality, ability, and quality that you do not find in newer synths. Its like the original Vacation movie. The new one SUCKS.
