I received the following regarding the 1.5 update. Will follow up with a phone call today.

Dear Fran Durham,
Taiyo Music simply got the update ahead of the US. I have the 1.5 operating system upgrade at my office. I cannot monitor the Synthzone Forum because our office machines are blocked from chat rooms. I am glad in a way. If you need specifics give me a call.

Subject: 7000 Update
You were very helpful to me with my 6000 several years ago and I am asking for some help again.
I am sure you follow the Technics Forum on Synth Zone.
The controversy about the updates for the 7000 coming from Taiyo and not Panasonic UK or USA is interesting. I would appreciate input from you on why Panasonic USA has not come forth with the update that was supposedly created in Japan factory. Is it safe to use the Taiyo Updates?
