Personally, I'd pick either the CS-60 or SH-5 over the Jupiter 6. The

CS-60 is a flexible and rich sounding polysynth (I don't know if there are
any MIDI kits for it if that concerns you), closest thing to a CS-80 you
get without having to pay for a CS-80. Even given my dislike of things
I must concede that the SH-5 is a very nice sounding feature laden mono,
things I might pick over it monosynth wise would be a like a Yamaha
CS-10/15/30, Pro 1 or maybe...a 2600 hehe.
I think the Jupiter 6 is disappointing sonically, and I find I'm not
only person who feels that way. I was really hyped up to try one and when I
finally did I was pretty let down. Not much animation in the oscillators,
the multimode filter though cool doesn't have quite the bite I'd like
It is rather unique at any rate, Jupiter 6's seem to be love or hate sorts
synths, so I suppose you'd have to try that one yourself.

Best Wishes,
