Congratulations! Hope you like the sound better than in the P08...
I have tried the P08 in the store and didn't really liked it because it simply didn't sound old to my ears.
But the owner of the shop told me that he had a customer who lent the P08 to compare it against his own P5, and the result... They soundend pretty much the same.
Also the P08 he had in the shop when I was there had a problem with on of the voices wasn't working at all.
Sounds a bit weird that an expensive synth like that has problems before it's even sold!
A synthesizer will be for you what you want it to be...

I think some deals are finally being had...I seriously just traded my MEK + $200 for a Voyager Rack...not the best deal in the world [no $500 Prophet's], but certainly a great trade in my opinion...
