I agree - not really for "dabblers". There have been one or two music tech posts such as Syntronic and M-Audio but like you I think they are a rare treat.

A rare pleasure to see music tech posted here, let alone a synth, let alone am Elektron product! It's a more reasonable price now, but the uninitiated should REALLY research what they're getting into with Elektron gear before making a purchase. Heat.
Fantastic price! Heat. (Why is it being voted down?)
