The advantage the SQ-80 would have in this scenario is simply that it has actual analog subtractive filters, so in addition to doing some basic FM-like digital sounds it can do some decent analog polysynth sounds, which are just as important to '80s-type music. As much as I like FM, it just plain can't sound analog - it always sounds like an FM recreation of the basic type of sound and never like an actual analog synth. The SQ-80 doesn't have that problem.

I've been using an SY77 since 1990 and added an SY99 a few years ago, they are far from one trick ponies and are capable of most any type of sound you want to do.
