Can someone adequitely explain to me why these continue to be so expensive in the aftermarket?

Is polyphonic aftertouch worth an extra thousand dollars+ if you only intend to use this as a controller?

Does the ability to play ASR-10 samples make the TS-10 more desirable than an actual decked out ASR-10 with expanded memory, sequencer, SCSI, digital output, and the coveted blue plasma display? (and even those are operpriced, IMO)

FWIW I have a TS-12 (beastly heavy 76 note semi weighted version of this synth) and I still don't get why they are so desirable -- no poly aftertouch in the weighted keybd though.
