The velocity and extra poly etc make the CZ-1 the best of the CZs by far. Rare though!!

first off... it can do sounds the DX7 cannot even do... you can literally port sega genesis patches to it - some of the presets are familiar from genesis games - if you like the sounds from final fight, street fighter, and countless other arcade game you've come to the right place (same YM2151 soundchip!) - it's really an awesome machine - i gig with it... i don't really consider it part of my synth setup because i use it for chiptunes and not "vintage synth" tunes
the CZ line is ok... very toy-like... better for learning subtractive synthesis but the sound is just so boring... if your arguement for liking the CZ over the DX line is "it's more analog-like" then i say any budget analog synth will blow the CZ line out of the water - even a Yamaha CS-01 (which is literally a toy)

you might find it easier (and you'll certainly find it cheaper) to start with a simple 4-op synth.
