I actually wish a little more of your ego was engaged there.
What's your opinion about the two besides the neuutral "All in all, both sound fantastic"

Those are two heavyweight synths, so we pretty much knew the conclusion before checking out your blog.
I want to know the backstory. When did you get either? Who was first and why....

How do YOU use them in your set up...how long did it take to learn each unit?
Best bang for the buck...what else you own(ed)...
Buying recommendations assuming I can only get one...or if you had to give one up, which one would you let go of?

Pound for pound, you must have a clear winner in your own head even if it's damn close...
or maybe not BETTER but favorite....

From your review, I was able to see that the SE-1X seems to excel at bright sounds, and the Voyager at smoother ones. So naturally they both have their uses and keeping them both is justified! :lol:
I am no longer in pursuit of vintage synths. The generally absurd inflation from demand versus practical use and maintenance costs is no longer viable. The internet has suffocated and vanquished yet another wonderful hobby. Too bad.

Saw your thread about SE Omega at HC KSS. If you're considering selling your SE-1x for an Omega, you will miss those thick and juicy basses. Not that the Omega can't do bass, but rather that the SE-1x EXCELS at bass :)
