I'm a complete newbie to the world of synths and midi. My background is in "classical" music composition, concert recording engineer and electronic/desktop publishing.

I'm looking to buy a good synth that can approximate the sound of a full orchestra. Money is not a big issue and I want to get something I won't outgrow in six months or a year.

My question, finally, is that looking at the raw specs, the Equinox Pro seems to be better than the K2500/K2600. However, it doesn't seem to have the widespread support that I might need if I get into trouble.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
