As I said, Fran...it's too bad Roland didn't put the G-70's action in the Bk-9...plus add the touchscreen.
They'd be a whole lot closer to making another decent TOTL arranger, and definitely be in league with Tyros5-76 and PA3Xpro76, and with a lot more manageable weight...probably be only 30-35 lbs tops.
You'd then have a very competitive keyboard action, along with the touchscreen you guys love so much...a winner all around!
The BK-9 is a nice little board, but hardly a real successor to the great G-70, and as Diki says, it's only a MOTL not TOTL as the Roland hype implies.
I also believe the OP's question has been answered quite well, according to him...he's already pre-ordered a Tyros5-76.
Let's just be happy for Hal.
