Not correct! Korg has always marketed they arranger top models towards professional players. Here is an excerpt from the Pa800 brochure:

Used by tens of thousands of musical professionals in every country of the world, the Pa80 is the industry standard. So, developing the next generation of Arranger from Korg - the Pa800 - required we understand the needs of the modern musical professional whilst respecting the technology chosen by so many musicians worldwide."
