The OB-6 is the cream of the crop there, without even a shadow of a doubt for anyone who's used one and the other synths mentioned (I've used or owned a few of the others and even a Prophet 6 and even that didn't compare with the utter beauty of the OB-6).

The JD-XA was... interesting for a while but next to the OB-6 is was clearly not up to snuff so I let it go without remorse. Roland could have made more of that synth's analog engine but it still wouldn't sound like OB-6.

The Prologue sounded terrible for an analog.
