the rundown of features on Hyperreal, I think a Jup. 6 is a reasonable

anybody has experience with both synths and could let me know if this is a
good plan.<<

Just as "Epicantic", I too have a JP-6 and JP-8080. I have to agree with
what he said. In addition you lose a couple of voices, ring modulator, 12dB

filters, pitch envelope, and all those interesting osc waveform
manipulations. Plus the JP-6 knobs, sliders and buttons feel really cheap
and hollow (it's no JP-8 in terms of physical construction).
