"I don't know how well it compared to the competition in '98 or '99""
Compared to e.g. http://www.vintagesynth.com/misc/reality.php it wasn't that great either ;-).

Some great memories of this synth so it has a nostalgia factor... But most of all I seem to remember thinking "DAMNIT, FILTER, OPEN!" because it seemed to be impossible to get the cutoff to go very high at all.
It was mainly used for bass and pads.

In the manual it states "The Neon is polyphonic with up to 16 voices. However, since each added voice consumes CPU power, the maximum polyphony may be limited by the speed of your computer."
However I can only get 5 voices out of it. Is it inaccurately determining modern CPU speeds or did they outright lie all these years? Oh well, it's a piece of crap anyway. The CS40 actually has 8 voices but it's advertised as "polyphonic with up to 6 voices". Nothing but lies.
