I agree with you about the Alesis Fusion and its impressive Cost to performance ratio, but there is just one problem. It does not have any arranger capabilites. If it did, Yammie would be losing market share of its Tyros & Psr 3000. A move by Alesis like that would shame Yammie & make them really buckle down in order to complete. I think the competition would cause the Brand companies (Yam,Korg,Roland Ketron etc..)to give the public a much better performance to price ratio. Or else they would fail.
PS--the Tyros 2 is slatted to be more expensive then the original tyros by a noticibly margin.
