Alesis QS8.1 or Kurzweil SP-88


I have been considering buying one of the following:
1. Alesis QS8.1
2. Kurzweil SP-88
I like the weighted 88 key feel and the midi-controller capability.
I like natural sounds: piano, Hammond B3, Rhoades, etc.....
any suggestions?

I have a QS8.1 and absolutely love it.
BUT remember that Alesis is bankrupt and gone (OK, taken over by Numark) and the availability of parts or service is going to be dodgy at best. If you get one you may be on your own. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that mine keeps working OK for a while.
