...Is only one of many that compare the kn5000 to the 740. Well, I have had a kn5000, and I too may be biased, but recommending a kn5000 to you isnít going to put ££ in my pocket!
It is, in my opinion, a class above the Yamaha 740 - taking all things into consideration. It has 66 watts of output compared to the 10 watts or so for the Yamaha. You mentioned earlier Joseluis, that the keyboard is "Old" (kn5000), and that the Shop dealer doesnít recommend it - I think the shop owner wants his ears testing... You said "dealer tells me KN5000 is a not good buy, becase is old... (three years and it is old!!!),
Well, My uncle has a kn2000 - and is still going strong with that - and that is 8 years old!. He also has a kn800 which is over 10 years old. and I have a Kawai K4 synth with superb vocal pads - and that's 7 years old!. Doesn't matter how old a keyboard is joseluis, it is the "lasting Quality" that counts
Yes, there is a Harmoniser on the 740 - but is it good enough for "Pro's"? Here in England, You can pick up a Yamaha 740 for £599, whereas a kn5000 will set you back £849.00 ($869, $1,230 respectively). Check here for an example : http://www.whitleybayorgans.co.uk/new_page_2.htm
At the end of the day though (could that be tomorrow!) the choice is yours!
