I heard all these demos and i noticed huge sound quality difference between PSR-3000 and S-900,the difference is that clear sounds,excellent trumpet shakes,very impressive sounds close to Tyros-2 and offcourse psr-3000 is a nice keyboard with good styles and so many new features added but the voices are not clear,little bit noisy and unpleasant.
The most important feature of a keybaord is its sound,i think S-900 is a very fantastic keybaord.

SUNNY.

Doesn't a tyros2 sound an awful lot like a tyros1 but for a few super articulation voices here and there? I would suppose the tyros 2 compares to the tyros1 exactly as the s900 to the 3000.

not really. every single instrument department of the tyros 2 has brand new voices that the T1 did not have...

new strings / brass / sax / guitars / organ / accoridans... i guess the only ones that remained the same are the woodwind / piano and Dance

even the new Live Power kits are totally different to anything that the T1 had.

According to the Demo DVD of the Tyros 2, all the voices of Tyros 1 are included with the Tyros 2 and many more have been added, also the overall sound system has improved making the Tyros 1 and Tyros 2 seem like chalk and cheese.
As to the S900, I think I am one of the few on SZ that has heard it played live, (Both demo and in concert) and I can assure you that it is way in advance of the 3000.

Congratulations on the new board! Could you post some decent MP3-demo's anywhere? All I heard from the S900 so far are the videos from Taipei which don't really tell me what the board sounds like (horrible quality, major mistake of Yamaha not to put demos online!!!)

If the feel is anything like the S500 which I played there not much difference at all vs the 3k...add a few SA voices/features and you'll have a S900.

Tyros2, in addition to having more voices than Ty1 has an improved sound chip so even the Ty1 equivalent voices have a better (HiFi) quality. If the S900 has the new chip then presumably that would also help explain the apparent improvement in sound quality over the PSR3k.

Sunny please elaborate on what you mean by not clear and noisy on the 3k...I dont think I have ever heard anyone say that about the 3k.

Hi,
Before i purchased PSR-3000,i used to play PSR-740 as it sounds very impressive even at higher volume.The sounds are clean and melodious.I even played PSR-2000 and PSR-2100 and the sounds are just like PSR-3000 and i was impressed only with the styles,as they sounded better than previous keyboards such as 740,730 etc.My psr-3000 won't sound good at higher volume.
But after hearing the sounds of Tyros-2,i noticed lot of improvement in the sound quality as i heard same audio quality in S-500 and s-900.I think same chip is used in all the new keyboards Tyros2,s-900,s-500.The other useful features in s-900 is Registration bank up/down buttons,very useful for live playing and we can select voices/styles with the data entry dial without pressing buttons and dedicated buttons for harmony,touch,sustain and DSP.
I think S-900 is a great keyboard for those who are dreaming about Tyros2 and cannot afford buying it.

SUNNY

having the Registration up/down buttons is a massive advantage for quick on the fly method of switching between your reg banks! great feature!

i could only imagine the PSR (or any board) distorting our sounding un clear at higher volume levels would be possibly because the eq is too low.

i think your eq settings may need a touch of Gary Diamond and the board will really come alive!

New Chip?? I find no such information on Yamaha's website about the Tyros2 having a new sound chip. AFAIK the Tyros2 has the same processor as the original Tyros has. The Tyros2 has more WAV ROM than the Tyros and it has the Super Articulation Voices which are a step above in sound "realism" but as far as the Tyros2 having a new sound chip I find no evidence to back up your statement.

Best,
Mike

Hi!

I must say that it sound MUCH better than the 3000. I am very, very, very pleased with it. I will go down my music store today and compare it to the T2. I will try to post some demos later today. Many of the T2 styles are in the s900 and I think it sounds like the T2. It is very many different guitarrsounds that sound execelent!!. I can play with just one sound for hours!!! This machine is worth every penny!!!

Kind regards Dan

Hi Dan,
Thanks for your review.Till now no official demos posted and we are expecting that you will post MP3 demos somewhere.
What instrument sound you have played for hours?How is the strings voice?Do you notice any improvement in strings section?

SUNNY.

I have now been to the musicstore.
And played a little bit on the T2. I think
you should compare the s-900 to then T2 instead of the psr3000. It has the same styles, and the same voices.
Probably a little bit fever of them. But i think it sounds the same. Same chip?
