I've owned a few of the cheaper synths on that list. I made a bass sound the other day that used a Fairlight sample and two Emulator samples. I very much enjoyed the idea that back in the day, when I used to stare at glossies of these instruments and drool, that sound would have cost me around $40,000 dollars to own. I could have bought a house for that money at the time.
There is an Arp Odyssey emulator by GForce called Oddity, it is the most beautiful mono analog virtual synth I've ever heard, I love it to bits.
