It certainly looks good.  Never tried one, but would like to.

Anyone care to compare it to the Olympia SG1, which is the only standard (i.e. full-size, office) machine that I really know.


Sincerely,
beak.

I shouldn't really say this because it sounds like an advert, but I have one for sale at the moment............!

Personally I don't think there's any comparison - with respect to performance - between the two. Esthetics is another matter, which is after all the most compelling reason to own a Lexikon 80. However, I will give the Olivetti the edge in portability; its 14.3 kg (31.6 lb) frame is less of a back breaker than the Olympia's spine-crunching 17.9 kg* (39.5 lb) weight.

* for the 15 inch carriage model. The 12 inch carriage model is a few pound less.
