Hi Ian,

Thanks anyway , if I did decide on the E-80 I think I would have to either make a new top or modify it in some way , or just go with the stand that Roland makes just for the E-80.

Still have a lot of thinking to do

Take care ,
Gary

The E-50 has similar operations for the endings...TWO button presses as opposed to the 3k's ONE.

Transposer on the E-50 requires TWO operations...one to activate the display/menu, another to choose the key...the PSR-3000 need only ONE.

So the E-50 has slightly more complex operations than the 3k...I guess it depends if you can live with them...or not.

Ian

You ONLY need to press TWO buttons if you want the ENDING to be in another variation than the MAIN your playing at that moment.

Example: If I'm playing in MAIN 4 and I want to use the ENDING 4, I only have to press ONE button: "ENDING". Only if I want to use another ENDING, I have to tell the E-50 which one by pressing TWO buttons.

Same goes for intros that I want to play in the middle of the song: In MAIN 3, I just press INTRO to get INTRO 3 to play, after that MAIN 3 will take over again. ONE button, again.

I don't know where you got that idea, but according to Merriam Webster it's "beginner" or "novice" in English.

"Tyros" is also Mecynean Greek for "cheese". Guess it's a cheesy keyboard. :-D

No, it's not a cheesy keyboard, but it makes you feel like the "big cheese" when you play it.

Look that up in your Funk and Wagnalls.

Maybe it is...but at least the Tyros2 is cool looking and sleek.

The PA in PA-800 means Plastic Abomination....butt ugly blue...eecchh!

Thankfully the sound seems to be passable, but I'll reserve my comments on that aspect until I play one.

And to hand in my two cents on the amateur/pro discussion: Is a pianist in a band more "pro" than the pianist who performs without a band but with the help of an arranger? I think the last one is at least smarter: he doesn't have to split the income in four or five

I consider a keyboard only to be "professional" if it's built to carry around a LOT. In and out suitcase, bumpy rides in cars, it has to withstand that. Where it comes to features, the top-ranges can all compete, no matter what the brand is.

Sound quality doesn't make the difference between "amateur" or "pro", IMHO. I mean, come on guys, even with the best PA system available, the sound is always "average" at best. Unless you play a concert hall, the conditions are hardly optimal.
