Akai S1000 or Emax rack?

Hi gang - a friend of mine has offered me one of his old school samplers, an Akai S1000 or an Emax. My only experience with samplers, besides the Casio SK-1 (!), was with an Akai, but it was always the studio engineer running it, and we didn't use it often/extensively. I know the old Akai samplers have got a good rep, so maybe I'm leaning towards that one. But really, it's also a better looking piece of gear. That's as far as I can go, thus my asking for advice here!

Any and all thoughts are welcome!
