Adding to what you have?
Replacing what you have?
Wait & See ?.....Or?

I ordered a Tyros 2 from Dan O 12 days ago. I am at the top of his ship to list as I was the first to order. I have 11 keyboards, now to be 12 in here and will prolly be selling or ? several of them.

I also ordered a Tyros2 from Dan O. For the last couple of years I've been writing
original songs on a PSR2100 and occasionally performing them at open mics and that sort of thing. I got close to buying a Tyros several times but backed off because of talk of an updated one. From all I hear, I'm glad I did. While I think arrangers are great for writing, I agree with some people that they can sound "cheesy" live(I used to play Hammonds and Wurlitzer electric pianos and so on), expecially the drums. I think, though, the T2 could be a big improvement. Now if they just weren't so expensive. Oh, well. DerfM

I have plans of maybe buying it, just because the Tyros 1 is such a fun keyboard to have I would like to have the Tyros 2 also. But because of its high price tag I want to know more about it before I decide. I want to hear more sound samples, know more about the Internet voice/sample download feature and so on. I was not very impressed with the sound samples of it, but some instruments like the power kit drums were much better in the Tyros 2. So I will wait and see now, it's really a lot of money and I feel that it is a little over priced.

I would like to hear MORE bite from this keyboard before I'm desperate for it! Those demo samples were typical cheap sounding keyboard songs and that turned me off a little since I want it to sound good on recordings too.

I HAVE BEEN BLOWN AWAY BY THE SOUND QUALITY AND WAS REALLY SET TO BUY THE T2 TO UPGRADE FROM MY PSR8000 BUT HAVE LOOKED CLOSELY AT THE SPEC AND AM HAVING SECOND THOUGHTS BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF A FULLY BLOWN SEQUENCER. I WILL PROBABLY BUY THE KORG PA1X IN A FEW WEEKS NOW

WOW......some great and deversified replies......looks like this time around there is some stiff competition fro Tyros II...wth the new G70 & Pax1 right in the mix. Educated consumers are really taking a close look & rightly so when your spending your hard earned money, deciding what features are exactly right for your purposes is the key before purchasing.

I ordered the T2 in Juli as soon as I heard the Yamaha rep talking about the details as super articulation voices, better keys etc.

The SD1 was my buddy for 4 years and I hoped to find the G70 to be a new buddy, what turned out to be a huge disappointment.
After that I owned the PA1XPro for a while... we just did not match, so I purchased a used Tyros1... while realizing soon the Tyros2 would be there.

The Tyros1 concept fits perfect to my expectations/needs : A great sounding, easy to operate, compact, lightweight machine

Knowing the concept is T1 alike and the revolutionary sound improvement PLUS the hi-Q keys makes the Tyros2 'fit for purpose' for me !

I will definitely be buying the Tyros2, to replace my current Tyros. The improved keyboard, sounds and styles make it an easy decision. Now to find the money, hopefully early in the New Year.

I already ordered a Tyros 2 from DanO. I bought my 3000 from him and have considered upgrading to the Tyros for the past year. I'm glad I waited.......the first hand reviews today and the A/V demos are awesome! -charley

I am buying one for the simple reason that I heard it at the launch yesterday. No doubt after that. I shall be replacing my 9000PRO.
