Not GAS'ing over this... would only do that had they gone analog for at least the kick. I'm sure it sounds great, no arguments there, but the 808/909 is just so well covered (market saturated) at this point especially with samples. I have anything I could ever need for them as it is. I much prefer machines that can imitate to some degree, but are different and have their own distinct character.
From a pure collectability point, yeah, I'll probably get a TR-09 and TR-08 at some point. They defined most of my youth and music taste, so it's a 2nd kind of cool. Yes, expensive toys to collect, but that's the fun of it to have the 303, 909 and 808 boutiques. I know people who have thousands more in Star Wars toys!
