Of the ones I own,
The Sync II with it's mahogany case has to be one of the better looking digitals. Covered in shiney red candy like buttons that light up.

No four voice here, but threw together a custom three voice. Wood is good!

I don't think the BeatThang or Mopho desktop have been mentioned yet so we're probably safe.

Indeed, also the 'venerable' timbrewolf has not been mentioned, no one has posted a rack stuffed with only Maths modules. The going is pretty good so far with some wild choices and/or odd jokes afaik.

I have always felt that this is probably my favourite synth aesthetically (plus I have always wanted one)

Mopho Desktop!!!

OK, Mopho Keyboard version. An underrated and very capable mono synth, with tank-like build quality.

Something about the odd color choice here is just so damn sexy in person. It was love at first sight.

Schmidt 8-Voice is beautiful. The Subsequent 37 CV is great too.

Jupiter-6 is far superior to the 8 in looks. I also preferred it in sound - and certainly weight!

I love the look of the 4V but this is just grotesque

one of the reasons Buchla synths were originally appealing precisely because they were cheaper than moog, and you could probably trade drugs for them.

I've always thought the Vermona 14 was exceptionally beautiful

And the OB12. I have a thing for blue synths.
