To each his own (or so I'm told)
Well, that's sort of a slippery slope, I suppose. I mean, if I had 50k burning a hole through my pocket, little would stop me from buying something like that. Would I take copious pictures and post to 'studio pics? Hell yes. I'd even consider taking that huge bastard to synth meets so others could have a go. No taking of the piss necessary.
...it would get serviced and brought back to operating state (if even necessary), and then I would proceed to explore that thing musically until my bollocks turned a deep navy blue.
Also of mention, this was likely a win/win as the school who was auctioning off the modular likely had little use for it, and instantly had money for all sorts of things.
Personally, something like that, I'm just glad that it's still being looked after -- after all, it is a part of electronic music (or at the very least, synth) history.
