Hi Steve - I've kept a U220 around if only for the strings and choirs. They're just beautiful.

I wish they had midi too as I need a small controller for my mini live setup
I have never tried professional ear-phones, only really cheap ones.
If I buy an mp3 player some day, I might consider to buy ear-phones.
However, I could never imagine that they sound anything near as good as full size headphones...(it is at least very hard to imagine)
Jez - All that gear must be quite a project just to transport and setup for your shows!
How long does it take you to setup, troubleshoot and soundcheck?
I guess around 30 minutes to an hour, depending how much stuff I take. The worst bit for that gig was getting it all up two flights of stairs to the room
Nowadays I'm using a more streamlined setup which is a bit easier to put together
My oldest synths are a Korg Mono/Poly and Sequential Circuits Prophet 5, from 1982
I bought both used and they aren't in the greatest cosmetic condition but are both still fully functional. I worry that they have a limited life left but intend to make the most of them whilst they are still working as they both sound really nice
I've gigged them both on occasion and will probably continue to do so as they sound even nicer through a good PA
I've got a Prophet VS and Matrix 12 too and have taken the VS to virtually every gig I've played since I bought it, but haven't used the Matrix 12 live yet
Here's the Prophet 5 and VS on stage
