The SY-77 is nice as h**l but the D-50 just seems more versatile (especially with the PG-1000 programmer) and easier to really tweak out if you know what I mean. I do believe the D-50 was Roland's shot at having a contender for the Yamaha DX-7 at the time of production. In my opinion, even though a LOT more big name artists have used DX-7s over D-50s, it still kicks the h**l outta the DX-7 and the SY-77! I do however, love my DX-7, but you didn't mention that one! I just had to mention it, sorry! lol!
