Spalding exactly well said.....Home arranger KB players is the key for Yamaha....The lack of professional arranger players versus all other pro keyboard players using synths, etc, certainly drives their research & decisions on product releases. If this was 30 years ago "pre computer age" where musicians really played instruments on a majority basis versus DJ's, KJ's, & every other way of making music like today it would be a different story....there is simply not enough "working pros" use arrangers which = less & less 76 key models available. Or to make it profitable for Yamaha to manufacture for the small market that wants they leave that niche up to other companies to deal with.
