Yes, another one

It's beautiful. Moog engineers their synthesizers like Germans engineer their expensive luxury cars. This thing is solid. If some comicbook superhero were to pick it up and throw it at you, you would not be a happy person. And neither would I. What's funny is that it's the exact same price as the Minimoog I lusted after so badly in 1973 when I was 13yo: $1495US. Taking into account inflation, the Sub37 should really cost about $7,952.13US. Instead, it's effectively a bit more than 1/5th of the price of the early-70s Minimoog and it's got about 8 times the capability. I've got a Moog Voyager, a Moog Little Phatty Stage II, and now this. And I can tell that this is going to be my favorite for many years to come.
